CONSCIOUS PEOPLE OF ALL AGES.
Nutritionists tell us that fresh, raw fruits and vegetables
are an important natural source of many essential vitamins and minerals. Cooking or
storing can easily destroy some of these nutrients. However, the vitamins, minerals,
bioflavinoids and enzymes that are present in uncooked fruits and vegetables are the same
as those found in their juices. Three 8-ounce glasses of juice can provide the major
benefits of up to three pounds of fruit or vegetables.
Unprocessed fruit and vegetable juices are appetite
appeasing, yet low in calories. By drinking a glass of this juice before each meal, you'll
reduce your desire for starches, sweets and other high-calorie foods.
It's recognized that a diet low in fats, adequate in protein,
carbohydrates and abundant in fresh fruits and vegetables, is an effective way to control
weight. Here are some surprising facts from the U.S. Department of Agriculture: In the
United States, vegetables and fruits supply us with 91% of our Vitamin C, 49% of our
Vitamin A, and 20% of our iron-- yet less than 10% of our calories. And in pure juice
form, these most nutritious of foods taste their best. We offer several style of
juicers to meet your needs. Read this article to learn
about the different styles of juicers.
Juicers - This style juicer is a dual stage single auger juicer that does not require electricity. It juices a wide range of produce from wheatgrass to hard vegetables and also will allow you to make nut butters and frozen fruit sorbets.
Press Juicers - Squeezes the juice out of the produce with pressure. It
requires produce to be shredded in order to be pressed. Since the juice is pressed
through a cheesecloth, the juice is virtually pulp free. It can be a slow process,
since it is a manual process. The press can also be used to get further extraction
from pulp from other style juicers. Click here for
more information on this style juicer.
Juicers - The Champion Juicer first grates, then masticates or chews the pulp
to further break down the cell-wall structure, and then mechanically presses or squeezes
the pulp to extract the juice. Click here for more
information on this style juicer.
Juicers - These juicers use a shredding disc and a strainer basket with
straight sides to hold the pulp in the machine. It keeps the pulp in the machine and
flings out the juicer much like a washing machine on the spin cycle. In
general, we no longer recommend this out-dated design.

Centrifugal Ejection Juicers -
These juicers use a shredding disc and a strainer basket with
the sides of the basket that are slanted. This allows for the basket to be
"self-cleaning", so there is no need to stop the juicer and empty it out.
The pulp is ejected out of the machine, usually into a collection bin or basket. Click here for more information on this style
Feed Chute Centrifugal Ejection Juicers - Similiar to the Centrifugal ejection juicers above, but these units offer a
3" diameter feed chute so you spend less time cutting and more time juicing.
There are advantages and disadvantages to this style juicer, which
you can read more about here.
Auger Juicers - These juicers works with a slow turning single auger
that basically crushes the produce into the walls (or screen) of the juicer, and in the
process extracts the juice. This style juicer in general is best for
people that want to juice high amounts of wheatgrass, leafy greens and
sprouts. Click here for
more information on this style juicer.
Vertical Single Auger - A
revolutionary design in juicers. It takes the single auger style juicer and turns it
vertically. Will juice fruits, vegetables and leafy greens. Juices wheatgrass ok. Most
have multi-purpose functions.
Wide Feed Chute Vertical Single Auger - Similiar to the Vertical Juicers about but with the added convenience of a 3" wide feed chute that will save time and require minimal preparation on certain produce items.
Will juice fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens. Will juice wheatgrass ok. Will make sorbets, nut milks, and nut butters.
Twin Gear Juicers - These juicers have
two gears that basically shreds then presses the juice out of the produce. The
screws turn at a low rpm. Click here
