Juicers separate the juices from the peel and other fibers of fruits and vegetables so that it is easier for the body to digest and use the nutrients. Staples carries citrus presses, masticating and centrifugal style extractors, ensuring an option that meets the needs of most restaurants, cafeterias and juice bars.
What Are the Benefits of Using Juicers? A juicer or extractor lets users remove the juices from the pulp, which contains insoluble fiber. Fresh juices contain minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients that are essential for overall health. When the juices are separated from the insoluble fiber, the body can access and absorb the nutrients and enzymes more efficiently.
Serving fresh juice to workers, guests and clients offers a healthy beverage alternative that contains increased health benefits over bottled or canned options. Juicing also provides a way for people to consume fewer calories while still receiving the nutrients their bodies need for optimal health and wellness.
Some juicing machines let users create smoothies, sorbets and frozen desserts, making them an ideal option for restaurants and cafeterias that need to maximize space.
Is a Citrus Press Juicer the Right Choice? Citrus presses are a simple option for removing juices from fruits. Presses are available in manual and electric machines that are ideal for establishments that want to offer fresh citrus beverages. Manual presses require the user to push the fruit into the reamer to remove the juices.
Small, hand-powered presses take up less counter space to use and fit into most drawers and cabinets for storage. Some manual presses include an arm that increases leverage for faster, more efficient juice removal, but these options take up a bit more storage space. Electric presses use the same principle as manual options but have a motorized reamer that turns to remove the juices more quickly.
What are the Differences Between Masticating and Centrifugal Juicers? Electric juicing machines provide a method of combining multiple fruits and vegetables into the same beverage. A masticating juice extractor features a blade that moves slowly and chews up the ingredients.
As the fruits and vegetables are broken down, the blade pushes them into a mesh bottom that allows the juice to separate from the pulp. A masticating machine can handle fibrous vegetables and wheat grass, but does require the materials to be cut into smaller pieces.
Centrifugal machines feature a basket that catches and grinds up the fruits and vegetables as they are placed into the chute. The basket spins as it grinds the ingredients, allowing the juice to escape into a container and keeping the pulp pressed against the sides of the basket.
Centrifugal machines accept larger fruit and vegetable pieces, helping to minimize prep time. This type of juicer also works more quickly than other options, making it ideal for fast-paced kitchens. Centrifugal options do warm up the juice slightly, which can result in oxidation in some cases.
Staples carries a selection of juice extractors that make it simple to offer fresh, refreshing and healthy beverages in any kitchen or cafeteria.
