(NaturalNews) Since introducing the Hurom Slow Juicer at the NaturalNews Store a few months ago, we've received literally hundreds of emails from very happy customers who love the versatility and results of the Hurom Slow Juicer. It makes nut milks, after all, even while being able to juice grasses, fruits and vegetables, too!
But if you don't use the Hurom Slow Juicer correctly, it can end up create a disturbingly large amount of pulp
in the juice. The amount of pulp in the juice depends largely on the sequence
of what you're juicing and how you're juicing it
. That's why I've put together the following tips to help our readers get better results from the juicer (with less pulp).
Tip #1) Don't shove food into it
Most of us used to juice with the old-style centrifugal juicing machines. If you recall, those machines require you to forcefully shove
food into them. You actually had to push hard on carrots and apples, for example, to shove them into the spinning blade where they were shredded into tiny flying pieces.
Do not use this same shoving force with the Hurom Slow Juicer! There is no spinning blade and no dizzying shredding taking place. No shoving is required. Instead, simply let your food fall into the "chewing auger." Virtually no force is necessary! In fact, forcing more food into it can cause too much veggie mass to end up in the auger at one time, and this will result in pulp overflowing into your juice.
When juicing grasses, feed the Hurom a small amount of grass at a time. You do NOT need to "clump" the grass into a ball like you used to do with the centrifugal juicers. In fact, you can slowly feed small bunches of grass, cilantro, parsley and other leafy greens without any problem at all! (You can juice kale one leaf at a time this way...)
Tip #2) Juice low-fiber plants first, and high-fiber plants last
Here's a really important tip: If you're going to juice high-fiber plants like celery
, juice them last! Why? Because the fibers in celery tend to accumulate in the ejection port at the bottom of the juicing
auger. If this port becomes clogged, then "pulp overflow" will occur, sending way too much pulp into your juice.
But as long as the ejection port stay open, the pulp in your juice will be minimized. So the best way to do this is to juice
your low-fiber fruits and veggies first: Apples, carrots, etc. Save the more stringy, fibrous plants for last. You'll get a much better result.
Tip #3) Juice your juice!
If you still find too much pulp in your juice, just pour the juice back through the machine again! You'll find that the second time through, nearly all the pulp is removed.
You can also strain it through a nut-milk bag, if you wish, but that takes more time and effort.
The bottom line is that if you follow these three tips, you'll find that the Hurom Slow Juicer
produces very little pulp in the final juice. (Personally, I don't mind a little pulp because a bit of natural plant fiber is actually quite good for you!)
