A popular question from new juicers is how long can I store my juice? My answer is simple and straight to the point. Do not store your juice, consume it immediately after juicing. That way you get the maximum benefit without losing anything.
However, if you absolutely must store your juice then how long it will last depends on a variety of different factors including the type of juicer used, what fruits and vegetables you are juicing, the temperature you store it at, what you store it in and how soon after juicing you refrigerate it.
Let’s take an in-depth look at exactly what causes juice to degrade and how to get the longest possible storage time with minimal effect on the quality of the juice.
You may think that all you need to start juicing is just a juicer and some fruits and vegetables to juice. But if you’re going to take juicing seriously there’s a little more to it than that. There are many questions to ask yourself like why are you juicing? What are you trying to achieve? How long are you looking to juice? How much do you want to spend on juicing?
If your budget is limited juicing is still very possible. The availability of cheap juicers has meant there has never been a better time to try juicing on a budget. Many people think that they need to buy a juicer to start juicing but it’s possible to juice with a blender if you already have one.
There is a lot of talk recently about juice fasting. Juicing is increasing in popularity due in part to documentaries like “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”. There is an ever increasing range of juicers, books, DVDs and websites to support people who want to juice. But what exactly is juice fasting and how does it differ from regular juicing.
Fasting generally means to go without food. Many cultures and religions practice fasting but juice fasting is different. The reason is that juice fasting allows you to consume freshly made fruit and vegetable juice. So you are in fact not fasting in the traditional sense. You are actually replacing regular meals with juice.
