There are two major types of juices. The first, masticating juicers are quiet, easier to clean and leave behind little pulp. The less expensive centrifugal juicers make a slightly pulpier juice and take up less space.
Here are some ways to squeeze more goodness from fresh juice.
- Fill up on fiber. Fresh juice contains less fiber than whole fruits and vegetables. You can add some pulp back in or add ground flaxseed.
- Stabilize sugar. Juices made with fruits and starchy vegetables can be high in sugar. Keep blood sugar levels in check by adding low-sugar vegetables like spinach, kale or wheat grass to your juice. Also pay attention to portion sizes. Stick to a serving size of juice is four to six ounces.
- Drink it right away. Juice’s beneficial nutrients start to deteriorate shortly after it is pressed. Drink the juice promptly and refrigerate for no longer than a day or two.
