There are many benefits in “slow juicing“.
You can find two essential types of electric juice extractors.
The first option is a centrifugal juicer, which works on high speeds- from 3,500 to 14,000 RPM (revolutions per minute).
Other juicers, on the other hand, can operate on slow speeds, somewhere at 80RPM.
You may ask “why does this matter?”.
Here’s the thing.
The difference here is that high-speed gives more heat and less full extraction of juice (with centrifugal juicing).
Whereas the masticating method works on a slow almost cold-press regime, which extract juice and nutrients from veggies, fruits and grasses. In addition to this, masticating juicers have a gear called auger, which rotates on slow motion, as it is effectively crushing the cell walls of vegetables and fruits, in order to release extra juice and nutrients.
This process greatly increases the amount of antioxidants and other nutrients found in the finished product. You can see many clips and pictures of how the food goes into the vertical tube and push the slow-turning gear, and it gets from the other side crushed.
That’s why the technique used in masticating juicers provides better nutrient yield, tastier and healthy juice than most of the centrifugal juicing.
We think that a quality juice is a priority.
So what is better than having one sturdy juicer, which will provide you a fresh glass of healthy juice every time you want.
Other benefit found in those devices is the heat used in them, does not kills some antioxidants, which create foamier and frothy juice.
Using the slow- press method you will have antioxidants and foam-free juice to enjoy.
We present you a list with top 5 best masticating juicers.
