Many people enjoy the taste and the benefits of freshly squeezed juice that comes from a juicer. A juicer is a mechanical device that extracts the juice of fresh fruits, vegetables, or wheatgrass. The reason why people love juicing, is because they want the most pure source of vitamins, minerals and enzymes from their fruits and vegetables. Also, some people like the taste of the fresh juice. It’s healthy, and it will have the freshest taste as opposed to boxed or plastic carton juice. Also, people find that they can control the quality of the juice when they juice themselves. For example, they might want to use a variety of organic fruits and vegetables. They can simply go to their favorite store that sells the organic products that they like. They they can juice them. This leads to yet another advantage of having a juicer. People can create varieties of juice according to their nutritional needs, and their taste desires. They can produce juices that would never be found in a grocery store.
When it comes to juicer types, there are several different models and types of juicers, that will yield juice in different ways. The most simplistic juicer types is a citrus juicer. Like the name implies, it is designed to extract the juice of citrus fruit like oranges, lemons, and limes. The design is a circle that is domed at the top, and that has ridges. The ridges are designed to fit into the ridges of the fruit. One would cut the fruit in half, place it over the pointed dome, and then twist the fruit over it. The juice will collect along the sides, and then collect in a jar, or in a glass. One could either juice these fruits manually, or with a presser machine.
Next, there are types of juicers called centrifugal juicers. These work by motorized blades that chop up fruit, and then collect the pulp in a basket. The juice flows down from a compartment into the glass. These are good juicer types for those who want a frothy type juice, because it adds a lot of air into the juice. However, these aren’t the types of juicers for certain vegetables, or wheatgrass, because it won’t break down the rinds and the fibers enough.
This leads to types of juicers called masticating juicers. These work by pulverizing the fruit and vegetables, and then yielding the juice. The huge advantage of these, is that they have a compartment for the pulverized pulp. The pulp can be frozen, and then used at a later time for recipes such as breads, and desserts. These can offer more “bang for the buck”, because it utilizes so much more of the fruits, and the vegetables.
The last types of juicers are called a triturating juicer. This has been called the “Rolls Royce” of juicers. This uses a twin gear process, that yields juice from one end, and the pulp from another. All of these types of juicers can be found online, and they will range in prices from $30.00, to hundreds of dollars. What type of juicer again will depend on the purchaser, and the end goal of the juice.
