Traditional Juicing vs. Whole Juicing

traditional juicing vs. whole juicing

One of the most common questions we receive from people is "Can a Blendtec blender make juice?" Our blenders can definitely make juice, but it's not the same as you will get from a traditional juicer. We call the juice from our blenders whole juice, and it actually contains more nutrients than what comes from traditional juicers.

What Is Whole Juice?

Whole juice is the result of blending fruits and veggies into a drinkable liquid without removing the pulp. A traditional juicer removes all of the pulp, leaving you with a shot of juice and a lot of pulp...which typically is thrown away.

When whole juicing with a Blendtec blender, you put whole fruits and vegetables in the blender. The powerful motor makes the blade spin so fast that the fruits and vegetables are pulverized. So you get a smooth juice, but you don't end up throwing all the pulp away.

Is Whole Juicing Better Than Traditional Juicing?

I am not a nutritionist, but I have read extensively on this subject. In general, whole juice is better than traditional juice because whole juice contains more of the fiber and protein your body needs. You can think of whole juice as a meal in a cup—a serving or two typically satisfies your daily recommended intake of fruits and vegetables. Traditional juice does appear to have some benefits. Traditional juice is considered to be a shot of vitamins in a rapidly digestible form.

Some people go on a traditional-juice fast for a short period and then transition to whole juices as part of a more sustainable diet. So whether you drink whole juice as a meal replacement or as an accompaniment to a meal, you'll be giving your body more nutrients. You will also be saving money because you won't be throwing away the fiber-packed pulp. Good for the body and good for the wallet—that sure sounds like a great combo to me. Here are a few recipes to get you started with whole juicing.

    I tried the passion fruit one. I wish that it came in a bigger bottle though, because I can finish 900ml in no time! It tastes amazing and I love that it’s organic with no sugar added. Will definitely buy this! Also had another —best tasting juice which is jus amazing….you can also check this.

    2018 still a relevant read. Seems like a Blendtec gives you the option to do both. A cheesecloth investment ($2) will be the difference between whole juicing and traditional. Both can be done with a Blendtec.
