Are you looking for a new juicer to make fresh-squeezed green juices at home? Consider a “gear” juicer over a “centrifugal” style juicer when shopping. Here’s why: A centrifugal juicer breaks up the molecules of the fruits and veggies, which means any chemical and bacterial residue ends up in the finished juice. A gear juicer presses produce without disrupting the molecules, which means more chemicals end up in the pulp and not the juice. But whatever you choose, always wash your produce; even organic produce has residual dirt and bacteria on it that can make you sick.
