As you know, there are many different types of juicer machines on the market and if you jump in blindly, you could end up wasting your money on the wrong juicer machine. Hence, in order for you to make the right decision, you need to know more about the different types of juicer machines.
There are three types of juicer machines, and they are the centrifugal juicer machine, the masticating juicer machine and the triturating juicer machine. In this article, we will take a closer look at the masticating juicer machine.
The masticating juicer machine is the slower juicer among the three juicer machines. Instead of cutting the juicing ingredients at fast speeds, it chews and grinds the fruits and vegetables at a slow speed. The masticating juicer makes use of a rotating auger that constantly grinds the ingredients through a mesh screen to extract the juice. The slow action of the auger actually gives the juicer machine many advantages.
Juices that are produced this way have less air bubbles and there is lesser oxidization occurring. Hence, the juice can be stored longer in the refrigerator. In addition, the slow grinding action also results in more extraction of the various components in the fruits and vegetables. You can expect your juices to contain more vitamins, nutrients and enzymes as though you are consuming the fruit directly. In addition, it is also more quiet due to its slow actions.
However, with all these benefits, you need to pay a much higher price than the centrifugal juicers, but they are well worth the price if you are an avid juicer. If not, you can live with the much faster and powerful centrifugal juicer machine, which can also give you decent juicing results.
