If you are a “health nut” or if you simply enjoy making things from scratch then you may find that juicing is missing from your everyday life. If so, then you will need to choose a juicer! There are two main types of juicers on the market today.
The first being centrifugal juicers. These juicers spin at a high-speed to grind the inserted food into pulp.
Masticating juicers are the second type. These juicers extract the juice from the inserted food by “chewing” or pulling it out at a low-speed. Masticating juicers do not work at high-speeds or use a spinning action. Masticating juicers are generally better products and are therefore typically more expensive.
The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer is one of the masticating juicers and it is also one of the best “bang for your buck” juicers on the market today!
What makes the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer “the best?”
This juicer is a new and improved form of the Omega J8005. This newer model includes a stronger Ultem Auger. This juicer also comes with a 15-year warranty which should give you peace of mind. This masticating juicer works at 80rpm which is a much slower speed than most other juicers (which can work at 1,650 to 15,000rpm). The faster the speed, the more oxidation occurs and the more healthy enzymes are destroyed.
Therefore, the much slower speed of the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer keeps many of the healthy enzymes intact as well as prevents oxidation. This juicer can make juice from a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, even leafy ones!
However, it is best that the food is chopped into smaller bits before inserting them into the mechanism.
More Than A Fancy juicer
The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer is also more than just a fancy juicer! It is also able to assist in other kitchen tasks. These tasks include; mincing herbs and garlic, grinding coffee, whipping up soy milk, and even making baby food! You can also make your very own all-natural peanut butter!
This masticating juicer works in two stages of juicing. The first stage includes squeezing the inserted food to extract juice. This mechanism does not grind the food, thus maintaining more nutritional value.
The second stage involves the pulp that was removed during the first stage. The pulp is then squeezed which not only dries out the pulp for easier cleaning but, it also enhances the amount of juice extracted as well as the nutritional value!
