Juicer or Blender?

by Ricardo
(Bogota, Colombia)

Q From a nutritional perspective, what is the difference between juicing and blending?

A I believe they hold nearly the same nutritional value, but one is delivered quicker than the other. I juice and I enjoy smoothies. Each has their place in my raw food diet.

The smoothie is hardier and will carry me for hours and hours, partially because of the fiber it contains that causes a slower release of nutrients. The juice is good for a boost of nutrients delivered in with high water content and most of the fiber removed. A juice may carry me for an hour or two depending on my level of activity and what else I’ve eaten that day.

I think both options are great ways to take in nutrients and can be very important for those on a raw food diet.
