View Full Version : What to do with Pulp?
01-24-2005, 07:44 PM
May I ask you a question? After juicing vegetables or
fruits, what can we do with the pulp? Do you just
throw them away or have other uses?
Thanks a lot!

It is great in crusts and crackers. You might look over at the raw and living foods recipe pages. rawfoods.com (not rawfood.com) there is a recipe there for a meat like dish made with the carrot pulp. Alissa has a couple recipes you could use it in too. Typically, I just grind it up with some sprouted wheat and sesame seeds with spices, roll it out between parchment, and dehydrate. viola!
You can also use it in essene bread...just remember that it is mostly fiber, as the nutrients are pretty much in the juice you made from the whole veggie.
I make onion bread with it... http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1149&highlight=onion+bread
I've made several batches of this, different each time. The one with the pulp was the best to date. (the pulp was from 3 carrots, 1 small beet, 1 apple)
The recipe calls for 2.5 lb of onions... I used about half onions and half pulp.

I've been thinking of taking my veggie pulp and drying it in the food dehydrator to sprinkle on salads and other dishes.
I've also considered combining the pulp with some nuts and/or seeds, adding some herbs, then rolling up the mixture in nori sheets and dehydrating. Think I may try that later this week.
Think those ideas would work?

I feed him carrot juice pulp every time I juice and he can't get enough! Besides, it helps him to have a more raw diet too and that certainly can't hurt.

Well, I have 33 hens so they get all the pulp. If it weren't for them, I'd start a compost pile. I also mix some up with my dogs ground beef - he's raw too. Or I put it in his oatmeal and plain yogurt.

Walking on water, that is such a fantastic idea--giving it to our animals. I love that! How wonderful to be able to share the benefits of 'raw' with our pets and not waste! Thanks for that simple suggestion.

Andrew - your recipe ideas work. Also, you can use pulp to exfiolate your body as well - a little messy, but very softening to the skin - I use carrot, apple and ginger - also that comboi has made great cookies, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves and 1-2 tbs of agave necture on the dehydrator.

My dogs (all four) love whole carrots. I give them out as treats instead of rawhide. They also love the carrot pulp..i just dump it in their bowls and they chow down. My lab loves tomatoes too....she plucks them right off the vine!

Suzanne, my dog is the same way. He has been a vegetarian since we got him. I've only been a raw vegan for four months now! He loves broccoli, cauliflower, jalapeno's, green beans, well ... basically everything I give him - except lemons. He's not too crazy about lemons, especially when I rub then on this front teeth! LOL. I gave him raw oats with plain yogurt and coconut flakes mixed in and he woofed (no pun intended) it down! LOL. :D

Raw almond pulp is perfect for exfoliating dry and dead skin cells from all over your body, I mix it with a little honey to keep it together, and rub it on my body, it works great.
I also freeze it, and use it to make raw cakes, carrot pulp works great for this as well, just add dates, some whole soaked nuts, and pulp, a dash of salt, some vanilla, and voila' great tasting cake, you can add frosting and fruit to top it off if you like.
My hubby makes dog treats out of it, by dehydrating them into people shapes for him.
The cat also likes it that way into fishy shapes. Actualy the shapes are more for us, I don't thinkthe animals care what shapes their treats are in.

Those of you using the pulps for skin help.. do you make them up for immediate useage or do you add a preservative to them for later useage?? I make soaps etc and was thinking of using these in my soaps but didn't know exactly how.. if they should be dried first or what... also to use them in butters for the skin if a preservative would be needed and would the pulp need to be dried first??

Yes, you would need a perservative for soaps and butters, because they can mold. Usually, I make my stuff up for that moment or no longer than a day in the fridge because of the mold that can accumulate I will write to you in a private message and chat more tomorrow.
Welcome aboard and blessings

my dog practically laughs at me when i try to give him pulp. doesn't like it at all! I adopted him at 8 years old, and I don't really know what he grew up on. I still give him tastes of whatever I'm cutting up.... he still doesn't like most fruits/vegs though.
i compost my pulp! just throw it on the pile :)

I'm new to juicing, but have been using my food processor and dehydrator to make vegetable blends for my birds (these are hugely expensive to buy). I thought that dehydrating pulp could give a great source for dried vegetables and fruits. My question: does pulp contain sufficient nutrients to be worthwhile? By the way, the obvious solution of simply chopping up fresh veggies and fruits for them does't work. They simply won't eat it. Any words of wisdom about the nutritive value of pulp will be greatly appreciated by me, five breeding pairs of Zebra Finches, and a variable number of babies..
