Which Type of Juicer Retains the Most Nutrients?

Juicing is a modernized process of pressing fresh fruits and vegetables. Many people speak highly of juicing because it facilitates their daily intake of vitamins and minerals.

While juicing seems to be today's trend, its beginnings date back to the 1920s. And with technological advances, various types of juicers were introduced and can now be found in the market. Therefore, knowing which juicer retains the most nutrients is essential if you are seeking to kick off a healthier lifestyle with juicing. A masticating juicer is known to be the best juicer for nutrients.

So, why do masticating juicers outperform centrifugal juicers in which juicer retains the most nutrients?

The Best Juicer for Nutrients

A masticating juicer, also known as a slow or cold press juicer, extracts the juice out of fruits and vegetables at a slow rate. In conventional masticating models, the juice is pressed out of ingredients using a powerful augur or screw that applies intense pressure to your fresh produce as they pass through a fine screen or sieve.

As opposed to conventional high-speed juice extractors such as centrifugal juicers, masticating juicers are more effective at extracting juice from fruits and vegetables. In addition, it is the ideal kind of juicer for leafy greens, which centrifugal juicers are known to be inefficient with.

Why a Masticating Juicer Is the Best Juicer for Nutrients

Air, light and particularly heat can destroy nutrients. For example, many enzymes and vitamins, such as vitamin C, are lost whenever juice is heated.

Fast juicers, also referred to as centrifugal juicers, have a motor that can spin at up to 13,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) and can run at about 1000 watts. Electric coils and other friction-producing parts are often found in the motors of juicers. With a fast juicer, the electric coils heat up more quickly since it uses more wattage.

You want a juicer that runs its motors at a low RPM and watts, introducing less heat and oxygen to your fruits and vegetables. For example, a masticating juicer uses 150 watts and has a motor that spins at 80 to 100 RPM, depending on the model.

With a masticating juicer, you get a more nutrient-dense juice since the juicing technique is significantly slower and uses less heat and oxygen than a fast, centrifugal juicer. While preserving nutrients is enough of a selling point, you get more than that with a masticating juicer, particularly from Hurom.
