This Versus That Thursday: Centrifugal vs. Masticating


Vegan Juiceology prides itself on providing juice lovers with the maximum amount of nutrients in all juices. I’m not going to lie, when I first start juicing, I used a Cuisinart, centrifugal juicer, because that was the most popular kind of juicer. I always go to juice bars and only see a fast juicer.

However, after research, I purchased the Omega 8006, a masticating juice. I used the Omega 8006 to knock out 77 juice orders from January 1, 2018 to March 28, 2018, the time I wrote this post. My ole faithful got me through! Lol. Now, and I mean NOW, I’ve upgraded to commercial cold Pressed juicing equipment using the Good Nature X-1, which can press 25 pounds of produce per minute.

I still have my fast juicer that is collecting dust and will probably never use again, but hey, at least I educated myself on juicers. I still have my Omega 8006 as I still use it from time to time, and it serves as a reminder of my progress as a Juiceologist. I’m truly blessed!

All of my cold pressed juices are pressed using a masticating (slow) juicer, the X-1 with hydraulic force and no heat, to extract the maximum amount of nutrients from fruits, vegetables, roots, and herbs, as well as to extend self life (with lemon slices), which a centrifugal (fast) juicer does not provide. The fast juicer in all of the juice bars I’ve seen are used for convenience, but a lot of nutrients are lose with this method of juicing.
