Here are some another tips to help you make the most of your juicing. They are simple but essential points of which you should be aware.

 


The Fresher the Better

Fresh juices should preferably be drunk just after they have been made, or during the same day. This ensures that they contain the maximum number of nutrients. Some vitamins are especially vulnerable to fresh air and can be destroyed in a matter of hours on exposure to it. If you are going to keep your juice, store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Taste the Difference

The consistency and flavour of fresh juices is very different from juices you can buy in the shops. They may seem odd at first, but you'll soon begin to prefer the texture and taste of juices made at home. They can be very thick, and are always much stronger-tasting than you will be used to. Some of them can look rather an odd colour (e.g. potato, grape, orange), and some of them are so vivid (e.g. red cabbage, red pepper, strawberries) you won't be able to take your eyes off them! The key is to stay open-minded and not turn up your nose at natural fresh juices just because they don't look or taste like the processed, packaged juices which are more familiar.

Unpalatability

If you find that certain juices really do taste unpalatable, try adding them to a ready-warmed soup or stew, to mask the flavor (cooking the juice will remove some of the nutrients).

Dilution

Children should always drink juices diluted, but if adults prefer them that way that's fine too. You can dilute juices with still or sparkling water, milk, soda, even lemonade -however, you'll find them easiest on the digestive system if you just use still water.
