Juice Your Own Vegetables

Anyone who likes to drink freshly squeezed juices and eat healthily usually has an electric juicer with which they can squeeze their fresh juices. Mix different types of fruit and vegetables. Everything that tastes good is possible.

Popular vegetable juices

The best-known of the variety of vegetable juices is probably tomato juice. But also

  • carrot juice
  • Beetroot juice
  • sauerkraut juice and
  • celery juice

are well-known and popular. If you frequently consume vegetables in liquid form, you should decide to buy a juicer. You can choose between different methods:

  • hot juicing
  • cold juicing

The juicing of vegetables

This method of processing vegetables is many years old. Perhaps you remember the large cauldron on Grandma’s stove, from which she drew delicious fruit or vegetable juices from a hose.

Hot or steam juicing

With this old method, hot steam dissolves the fruit or vegetables to such an extent that the juice escapes. The juice obtained can be tapped into easily sealable bottles via a hose with a clamp. The heat in the kettle preserves the juice, so it can be kept for a long time. However, it destroys most vitamins and nutrients.

Cold juicing

Here you process raw fruit or vegetables, and nutrients and vitamins are retained. There are two options for cold juicing:

Juicing with the centrifuge

Here the fruit or vegetables are first chopped up with a coarse or fine rotating grating disc. The rapid rotation extracts the juice. This is pressed through a sieve insert and thus separated from the solid components. The juice flows through a spout into a collection container. The solid residues go into a separate container as pomace.
Cold juicing requires little effort. However, some of the nutrients are lost when rubbing and spinning.

Juicing with the electric juicer

With an electric juicer, you extract the juice in a particularly gentle way. The fruit or vegetables are first broken into small pieces by a “snail” and then squeezed out. Juice and product residues go into two separate containers.
The juicer works slowly and relatively quietly. The juice obtained contains almost all nutrients and vitamins, in addition, it can be stored in the refrigerator for about a day without losing quality.
