Slow Juicer vs Masticating Juicer

Slow Juicer typically uses a food grade plastic auger to slowly churn produce  . Its action is to squeeze the juice. A centrifugal juicer has a metal plate and teeth to tear apart produce, letting  juice out.


The important advantages of a masticating/slow juicer:

  • Plastic does not oxidize the juice on contact>> more nutritious
  • slow mastication creates very little heat so as to preserve the raw nutrients from raw produce
  • it yields about 30% more juice than a centrifugal juicer

Advantages of Centrifugal:

  • cheaper and works well for juicy fruit like citrus and berries

Overall you get better quality and value for your money spent on juicer and produce with slow juicer/masticating.

I use Omega 8006 masticating juicer, but there are many great juicers to choose from. Just FYI I dont think that spending on the top of the line gadget may be worth all the extra investment. I would choose something in the mid price range.  Many have a lifetime warranty.

Do and Dont of Juicing

  • cut up produce in small one inch pieces that fit easily through feeding shoot
  • Careful not to cram too much . It wont juice any faster but it can obstruct the juicer.
  • go easy on any one green at first. Lots of greens have a funky taste when too concentrated. That includes Kale, Broccoli, cabbage and wheatgrass.  In moderation they blend in nicely with other mild greens, fruit and watery produce.
  • add fruit( apples, oranges, but even grapefruit and lemon adds some sweetness) 1:1 ratio fruit to vegies, then taper off later according to your desires for less fruit.
  • and/or use juicy produce to dilute strong flavors( cucumber, lettuce, bok choy, bell pepper)
  • use a recipe or create a simple 2-3 ingredient recipe(one being some fruit): some of the bets mono juices: cucumber, carrot(diluted with water), diluted  beets(if sweet)
  • You can masticate wheatgrass in your mouth to freshen breath and save time. Sit out the fiber.

Draw from this pallet of flavors to create your perfect blend

Sweet greens: Broccoli, cabbage, wheatgrass, bell pepper

Salty greens: chard, celery

spicy greens: cabbage, radish, ginger

bitter greens: kale, dandelion, watercress


A great tomato juice substitute: 2 parts celery, 1 part bell pepper, one part cucumber, one part chard


Enjoy 😉
