The Power Of Pulp

Sunday, February 15, 2015

I prefer to use a juicer and drink my vegetables. But I've heard that I'm throwing out nutrients with the pulp. I think that it would be healthier to blend some veggies and tomato juice together, and drink the slush, pulp and all. When I do this, I tend to choose low-sodium tomato juice, so that both my husband and I can drink it. He is on a low-sodium diet because of High Blood Pressure.

Using a juicer is an easy way to reap most of the vitamins, minerals, and certain other disease-fighting substances from vegetables and fruits. But juicing strains out most of the fiber, some of the vitamins and minerals, and possibly other, unknown beneficial substances. In contrast, using a blender retains everything in the produce. Drinking slushed fruits or vegetables can be even healthier than eating them whole, since you're apt to consume more of them.
