(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!)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
