Blending Versus Juicing - Is There A difference?
It all depends on how you do it. In case you are not aware, the skins of many fruits
and root vegetables are the main source of their fiber and antioxidants. If you remove
them prior to eating, you are actually taking away the essential fiber that is good for
your digestive system. Therefore, it is important to wash your fruits and vegetable
thoroughly before eating.
If you blend organic apples or pears with their skin, the amount of fiber you will get
from the fruits will be maximized. Although the texture of the blended juice is coarser
than juice from the juicer, you are getting the natural fiber that will help you digest
better and keep your digestive system in good working order. A juice machine is good too, but juicers
tend to hold back a portion of fiber (usually the skin of the fruits) in the filters.

In general, any food that is labeled “Organic,” must be produced without
artificial fertilizers, synthetic pesticides, bioengineering, or radiation (used to
kill bacteria). Prior to labeling a product as “Organic,” a government-approved
certifier must first inspect the farm and ensure that the farmer adheres to
specific standards that are regulated by the USDA (United States Department

renewable resources to protect the environment for our future generations.
