There are 2 basic types of juicers: the Cold Press Juicer (like the LifeSpring) and the Centrifugal Juicer.
Cold Press Juicers work in an entirely different fashion than the centrifugal juicer.
Cold Press Juicers were designed to specifically extract and preserve the natural integrity of all the healthy nutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber in whatever you are juicing. Cold Press Juicers literally extract all the juice from the fruit or veggie by a slow speed masticating process.
This slow speed process allows the nutrients and enzymes to be fully preserved due to a total lack of heat, ancillary static electricity and outside air intake that is inherent in the juicing operation generated by centrifugal juicers. In rather simplistic terms, your juice is not pre-cooked.
With a Cold Press Juicer, your juice tastes more like the fruit or veggie used plus has a much longer shelf-life in your refrigerator. Even the colour of the juice is more vibrant and alive looking. There is none of that murky-brownish tint often associated with juices extracted from centrifugal juicers.
Cold Press Juicers do not require the cutting blades and strainers inherent in all centrifugal juicers and this makes for far easier maintenance. You simply rinse the juicer! No scrubbing or pulling out shreds of pulp required.
An added bonus with Cold Press Juicers is the lack of noise; centrifugal juicers are very noisy; cold press juicers are not. You can make healthy juice whenever you want – without waking up the entire household.
To recap, Cold Press Juicers beat centrifugal juicers on all these points:
- Less oxidization of juice
- More fiber in your juice
- More nutrition in your juice
- Save money – there is less waste of food product used and you get more juice
- Less waste – juice lasts longer in the refrigerator
- Easier clean-up
