Juicing has many health benefits but for a great juice, you need the right juicer. There are many juicers available on the market and various ones can be high quality, durable options but it does not mean it corresponds to your juicing needs. Raw Nutrition carries a large selection of high performance, top of the line juicers. There are many choices but which one to choose? There are three main juicing processes-twin gear, masticating, and centrifuge. Centrifuge juicers like the Breville turn at a very high speed and produce fast results. However, the quality of the juice is lower and it tends to separate and oxidize more quickly. Twin gear juicers turn fairly slowly at around 100RPMs and they use a concept of two large screws turning against each other producing a three-step crushing, mixing and rubbing, and squeezing process that extracts the most juice out of your produce. Masticating style juicers also use a great technique, although a bit simpler. They feature only one larger screw that crushes and masticates the produce. The results are very similar in both juicing processes and you obtain a great juice yield with dry pulp. The masticating juicers can be divided into two groups-vertical and horizontal. The focus of the vertical style masticating juicers is ease of use and fast clean-up. You can make some of the best vegetable and fruit mixed juices. The horizontal-type masticating juicers are more versatile allowing you to also juice leafy greens and wheatgrass daily as well as processing nut butters, frozen fruit ice cream, and pasta. All in all, choosing the right juicer depends largely on your juicing needs. Omega, Hurom, Kuvings, and Green Star are some of our most popular brands.
