Five Juicer Myth You Need To Know


Many would say the answer to the question ‘Is a masticating juicer really better?’ is yes while others would say no. Different people will give different reasons for their answer, and all these answers were derived from certain myths. To clear your minds from these myths and bring you the true facts, this post has been designed.

Common Juicing Myth

1. A Slow Juicer Produces More Juice

Well this is true if interpreted as it is spoken, but many people misinterpret this statement as ‘the slower the juicer, the more the juice’. The statement ‘A slow juicer produces more juice’ simply means that a masticating juicer which takes more time in grinding would give you more juice than a centrifugal juicer which is faster and slices your food to produce juice. If interpreted this way, this statement is true. However, when interpreted as ‘the slower the juicer, the more the juice’ which means that the slowest juicer would produce the most juice, it becomes false. No matter how slow a centrifugal juicer is, it will never produce as much juice as a masticating juicer. The production of juice is not affected by the speed, but by the process. A centrifugal juicer works by slicing while a masticating juicer works by grinding. Therefore, masticating juicer (which is slower because it is grinding) would produce more juice than a centrifugal juicer (which is fast because it is simply slicing) this is what this statement is meant to mean.

2. Centrifugal Juicers Destroy Enzymes

This statement is false. A centrifugal juicer does not destroy enzymes. This statement may be used by people selling masticating juicer, but it is not true and will never be true. People believe that the friction from the very high speed of a centrifugal juicer results in heat which kills the enzymes present in the food been juiced. Others do not agree with this statement but have their own opinion which states that the speed of the centrifugal juicer slices the molecules of the enzymes present in the food particles. But the truth is that these two statements are false, and centrifugal juicer does not destroy enzymes. In fact, a centrifugal juicer can offer several health benefits when it is used constantly. A centrifugal juicer works at a fast speed and is good for busy people. A centrifugal juicer does not kill enzymes, and it will never kill enzymes.

3. The ‘amazing’ Features

On the label of some juicers, you might find statements like ‘100% more enzymes’. This is entirely false as a juicer can’t add enzymes to a juice. Its job is to extract the liquid in a fruit or vegetable, and that alone it can do. It is the enzymes present in the fruit you put in a juicer that will be in the juice itself.

4. A Centrifugal Juicer Is The Best Since It’s The Fastest

While many people might love the centrifugal juicer as a result of its speed which is probably the source of this myth, this statement is false. A juicer is best depending on your personal needs. If you need something for citrus fruit, then the citrus juicer would be best for you. If you want something fast, then the centrifugal juicer would do just fine but you might be limited to certain kinds of fruits. However, if you want a juicer that gives you more juice, then the masticating juicer is your best bet. Although the masticating juicer is not as fast as a centrifugal juicer. All this points to the fact that a juicer can only be the best for you when you have been able to state your specific needs. If you desire speed in a juicer, that does not make a centrifugal juicer best for everyone since the next person might not want speed but juice quality.

5. Juicers With Twin Gear And Bio-magnet Improve The Quality And Shelf Life Of A Juice

Surely, this statement is wrong. While twin gear machine does produce juice that is actually better, they don’t do this because of the bio-magnet present in them. They do this because the double gear can grind fruit fibers better than a single gear. The reason behind a quality juice is the pressure used in juicing it, and not some bio-magnet or any other myth. This is one myth used by the manufacturer of twin gear juicer with bio-magnet. The truth behind this is that the bio-magnet doesn’t make the juice better, but the twin gear itself does.

As it was mentioned earlier, when people are asked the question ‘Is a masticating juicer really better?’ They tend to give different answers due to different myths and assumptions. After reading this post, you should be able to ascertain which juicer is best for you judging from the facts that have been listed.
