A Blender is one of the common juicer machines used to mix or liquefy fruits and vegetables finely, spinning at low or high speeds.
When pureeing, it is easy to use because it mixes water, fruits, and vegetables all together.
It forces the mixture down into the blades continuously for smooth results with a pulping/waving action.
You probably use the blender for cooking whenever you blend/liquefy something.
The Blender and Nutrition:
When making smoothies, puree, crumbs, or a milkshake, a blender is perfect. It is useful for making smoothies and milkshakes, especially because it can break up ice.
However, if you want to drink highly-nutritional soymilk or fruit/vegetable juices, then blenders may not be right for you.
A blender actually breaks down nutrition and enzymes by its fast-moving blades; this causes higher oxidation and makes the drink less nutritious.
The Market price of a Blender:
A blender, one of the simple juicer machines, is cheap to purchase, normally under $20-30 at any store. But blenders that are very low-priced can sometimes have problems, such as releasing a burned smell after a few minutes.
There are many high-priced blenders that cost from $200-$1000+ that have additional functions; however, they all do the same thing: they blend/liquefy food. The best blenders that range from $40-to $200 usually work well.
However, the blender I use, a Hamilton Beach model with wave action blades, cost less than $40. I purchased it from Wal-Mart, and it works really well for blending/liquefying foods without releasing a burned smell. Because the blender has the wave action blades, I even use it for making soy powder.
A Gear Juicer
A Gear Juicer is designed to extract juice from fruits and vegetables.
It crushes and grinds fruits and vegetables to squeeze out their juices.
A juicer uses minimal oxidation, which keeps the healthy enzymes intact.
When desiring healthier juice in processing fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, and wheatgrass, etc, a gear juicer machine is better for healthier juice than a blender.
A Gear Juicer and Nutrition for Soybeans:
When juicing organic fruits/vegetables like soybeans, a gear juicer machine will keep all healthy benefits in foods intact.
When grinding soybeans, you can also expect more soymilk and a better taste than when using a blender or a centrifugal juicer.
When grinding soybeans to make soymilk, you need to put some water into the juicer for smooth action, because soybeans are not leafy vegetables. The functions of a gear juicer can be controlled with an adjusting knob, and depending on how you set it, you can control the texture of the fruit/vegetable pulp to make breads, soups or juices.
Gear juicers, such as a single or twin, are effective for juicing leafy vegetables like wheatgrass, kale, water spinach, Swiss chard or alfalfa sprout; they operate more quietly than a centrifugal juicer machine.
Gear juicer machines have been introduced to the market for home and commercial use. For commercial use, a gear juicer is designed to last a long time. It’s more durable than a home juicer machine. If you make soymilk for commercial purposes, you can also find a type of commercial gear juicer machine that can separate the soymilk and the soy pulp after grinding the soybeans.
The Market Price of a Gear Juicer:
The price of a gear juicer varies from $100 to $1000, depending on the make and model. The best “bang for your buck” (best quality for the lowest price) gear juicers range from $100 to $300.
However, if you just tend to make simple soymilk with soybeans, a centrifugal juicer may be your best bet.
A Centrifugal Juicer
My first centrifugal juicer was a hand juicer for citrus fruits, like oranges and grapefruit. It cost me less than ten dollars. It did a great job of blending the orange or grapefruit juice without destroying any nutritional content or enzymes.
Nutrition and Function:
The machine works swiftly, so it can be noisy. While a gear juicer maintains most of the nutrition and enzymes during processing, the high-speed centrifugal juice machine produces more oxygen when squeezing juice from the pulp; this can destroy more enzymes and nutrition.
Centrifugal juicers extract less juice from the pulp than gear juicers do. They also change the color of juice and have more foam because of the oxidation. But if you want to make quick and easy soymilk or juice, it will save your time.
Market Price of a Centrifugal Juicer:
In comparison to a gear juicer, most centrifugal juicers cost less. Their price ranges from $20 to $1000. However, the best centrifugal juicers cost around $300, according to consumer research.
