Recently, I started to notice that my Breville Juice Fountain Plus began to develop cracks in the top cover closest to the blade. It would have cost around $40+ dollars to replace just that part so I decided to research cold press slow juicers. I watched many interesting videos and learned quite a few interesting facts.
Slow Juicers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1OzQt6JyBM
- Rotate at about 80rpm
- They do not heat the produce or add oxygen
- They preserve the enzymes and vitamins longer
- They get more out of your produce for a higher yield
- The juice is more concentrated and lasts up to 3 days
- Almost no foam
- Great ability to juice greens, wheatgrass and fruits/vegetables
My Breville was excellent, don’t get me wrong! I love that machine and I think it is fantastic. When you move to slow juicing, you move to another level and you get the best quality juice you can get. Sure it will take longer to juice and cut up some of the produce, but in the end it is all worth it when you live a normal life and rid yourself of medication.
The last few juices that I have made were from a single auger crank juicer. The juice came out a rich color with a ton of flavor. It did not separate from the oxygen and heat. It was an interesting difference and I await this new juicer to get more leafy greens in:)
In my next post I want to talk about how I had to do a 2-3 day juice fast due to a blockage from undigested food(Nuts). I believe that doing a fast hits a reset button for your intestines and flora. I believe someone who struggles with Crohn’s would greatly benefit from doing a juice fast along with probiotics/probiotic soups(Miso).
