Comparisons have been made between masticating and centrifugal juicers for a long time; although the clear facts are often clouded in favour of product promotion. However, at WeightWorld we strive to offer the most beneficial, top quality products that are on the market today, and thus can provide an impartial analysis of the following two types of juicers.
Centrifugal juicers work to juice fruits and vegetables using high speed mechanisms that spin the juice out of fruit and vegetables, in layman’s terms. Because of this, centrifugal juicers allow for a cleaner juice concentration, which is far easier to give to children or to enjoy if you are not a fan of pulpy juice. As they are much cheaper too, they make ideal products for first time juicers looking to start up. If you despise the bits in your fruit juice, then the centrifugal is for you. However, they are quite tricky to clean in comparison with mastication juicers that consist of very little parts. The juice will also go off quite quickly compared to the juice made with the mastication juicers. The juice goes off quickly, because not as many of the nutrients and enzymes are preserved when fruit and vegetables are juiced using this high speed mechanism.
The mastication juicer works using a slower, grinding mechanism. In a sense, masticating juicers grind the juice out of fruits and vegetables, similar to how we grind the nutrients when we chew with our teeth. Because of this, masticating juicers promote the maximum amount of nutrients, enzymes and vitamins to be released from the fruit during the grinding process, leaving you with a potentially pulpier and bitty juice, but a far more healthy and living juice at that. Because the juice is so packed with these nutrients, it allows for longer preservation. If you are looking to juice things like wheat grass and herbs, then masticating juicers are the only juicers that can do it. An additional benefit is that you are able to blend pretty much anything you fancy, without the hassle of it going blunt and they are easy to clean.
The juicy verdict!
At WeightWorld we feel that masticating juicers are the healthiest, most beneficial option. When it comes to juicers, why buy something that could potentially take the goodness out of your juice, or not have the function to juice anything and everything you desire. While it may cost more money, in the long run you will be winning, as you will produce nutrient packed living juice, in its freshest and purest form. Centrifugal juicers definitely have their place on the market, and are great for people on a budget or looking for something basic to start with. They are really great for kids too, as they have literally not bits, and thus it makes giving them their five-a-day a lot easier. Masticating juicers break down more fibre and pack your fruit drink with a greater concentration of nutrients though. They are easy to clean and allow you to store drinks for a substantial period of time. For a healthier lifestyle, WeightWorld suggest masticating juicers.
