The process of juicing leafy greens has come a long way in the last few years, and therefore this update for 2018 is meant to help you learn about some of the advancements in juicing technology. If you have decided to get a new juicer, if you’re a beginner for instance, then you should definitely read up on the following information. But even if you have been juicing greens for years, you might want to take the time to read up on the advancements.
Just a few years ago there were only a select few brands of leafy green juicers. Now, however, in 2018, there are many brands. Some of these brands were once mainly responsible for making juicers that were designed more to be centrifugal juicers (these weren’t the best for leafy greens). Other brands are made by companies that had traditionally made traditioanl kitchen appliances.
Advancements In Leafy Green Juicers In 2018
- Quieter Motors
- Less Pulp
- Better Juice Extraction
- Less Heat
- Easier To Clean
The main thing that people who wanted to get juicers for leafy greens knew to look for was an auger juicer. Simply stated, as you have surely seen on this website as well as all over the health media, you can’t successfully make a green juice, especially one made with leafy greens, if you use a juicer that uses a centrifugal style device. These would not extract enough of the juice that you want, instead they would create a foamy and pulpy juice, not to mention a wet pulp (a symptom of juice that had not been extracted). And aside from that, you risked the heat destroying the enzymes from the juice, which is the last thing you want to do.
However, in 2018 there are a lot more things you should look for when buying a juicer. It’s not enough to get one that has an auger…well, it’s perfectly fine, but there are so many other things you can now take into consideration because there are so many options. It’s not like when the only brand available was the Greenstar (a really great brand, so don’t just write them off because they are one of the originals…that would be like discounting a Porsche or Mercedes because they are classic brands. However, there are other things to take into consideration. So, here’s a few things to look into for your next 2018 juicer.
The motor on the new 2018 model leafy green juicers are going to be much quieter than the older machines. The quiet is something to take note of because, while it doesn’t directly impact the quality of the juice, it does create a much more juicer friendly environment. A quiet juicer is one which you are much more likely to use everyday. You won’t be less likely to use it for fear of waking up neighbors (if you are someone who juicers early in the morning). The sound of the machines isn’t normally whisper quiet–in fact it’s never a silent hum–but they 2018 models are way quieter than ever before.
One of the cool things about a juicer with less pulp is that you get maximum nutrients without having to worry about all of the fiber that can fill you up. This is the essential reason that people turn to juicing to begin with. You simply cannot eat enough vegetables to get the nutrients that you design. It’s just impossible because of the amount of fiber. That fiber, while good for you, will fill you up and it will prevent you from getting the huge amount of liquid antioxidants. The new machines have much finer screens and they prevent the pulp from getting into the juice.
Better Juice Extraction
Really, all the bells and whistles aside, what you want when it comes to a juicer, is an appliance that will extract every last bit of juice from your leafy greens. This way, you won’t end up wasting fruit or vegetables. Consider the amount of money that you spend on organic vegetables and then think of the amount of money you will save. The new juicers being sold in 2018 have a much better juice extraction than the older models.
Good juice extraction is paramount to creating healthy juice. The major issue when picking a juice is always going to be the extraction method. Luckily, there are all sorts of companies in 2018 that are making great juicers that will protect the nutrients in the juice (which is important
Heat is a big problem with juicers. The more heat, the more the risk you are going to have with destroying the enzymes of fresh juice. This is not an issue if you’re dealing with a slow process juicer. The slow turning augers use incredibly power, not incredibly speed, to squeeze all of the juice out of the leafy greens. The less heat, the colder the juice, the more nutrients available to you when you drink the juice….which after all is exactly what you want to happen.
Easier To Clean
Perhaps the best innovation in juicers for 2018 is the easy to clean features. These current juicers are both easy to disassemble and clean, and some of them even come with self-cleaning features that make them super easy to clean. This is a big deal if you are the type of person who hates cleaning up appliances after you are done using them. Because, realistically, cleaning up can be a headache and you want to make sure that there is nothing that will prevent you from using your juicer to make the new year a health one.
