Juicing is a great way to integrate fruits and vegetables into your diet, especially if you do not like to eat whole fruits and vegetables. It can help you meet the daily recommendations for these foods as well as allow you to consume a wide variety of fruits and vegetables in a tasty way. Juicing is usually done with a machine which turns raw fruits and vegetables into liquid and pulp. The machine chops the fruits and vegetables into tiny pieces and spins them, separating the juice from the pulp.
Even before juicers were invented fruits were mashed. Text from the Dead Sea Scrolls, "A pounded mash of pomegranate and fig" resulting in "profound strength and subtle form,” indicates that juicing has been around since ancient times. The first living juicer was invented in the 1930’s by Dr. Norman Walker. He called this juicer the Norwalk Juice and it is still on the market to this day. In 1954 the first masticating juicer was invented, The Champion, which can juice almost every type of vegetable including leafy ones. The Greenpower juicer was invented in 1993 and was the first twin gear juicer. It was created by Richard Kim who was presented the grand prize at the 9th International Invention/ New Products Exposition in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in May 1993.
Nowadays juicing s is used for a variety of reasons, whether it is to add a delicious snack to your diet or to help alleviate ailments such as skin disease or immune disorders. It is now known that much of the fiber from fruits and vegetables is contained in the pulp so it would be a good idea to add some back into the drink. If you do not like to drink pulp, try baking the pulp into a muffin or cookie recipe as a healthy alternative. Modern juicers make juicing easy and fun.
Juicing for Beginners
When deciding the best juicer for beginners, the criteria that was reviewed was price, power, and ease of use. For these reasons, we believe that the Breville BJE200XL is undoubtedly one of the best juicers for an entry level consumer.
At just around 100 dollars, the BJE200XL competes with juicers at double the value. Power:
This compact juicer comes with a 700 watt motor that spins at 14000 RPM.
Ease of Use:
This model is a centrifugal juicer, meaning it spins at a high speed to produce juice in seconds as opposed to a masticating juicer that produces over the course of minutes. Another key feature of the BJE200XL is that is has a wide mouth feed tube. The feed tube is wider than most models at the entry level market, which saves time for the user by allowing more fruit to be pushed in at once. Users don't have to cup fruit or chop up pieces, they can simply drop whole pieces of fruit down the feed tube Every part of the Breville model is dishwasher safe, to make clean up faster than other models on the market
Juicing at the Intermediate level
The next level of juicer is for the consumer who has had prior juicing experience and has interests in creating new drinks from recipes that they couldn't perfect with an entry level juicer. An intermediate level juicer is also perfect for a consumer who is making recipes for a whole family rather than a single person. We reviewed the top five machines and recommend the Breville Juice Fountain Elite 800JEXL/B. The criteria that made the Breville Juice Fountain stand out among the other options were:
