View Full Version : Strainer bags/fiber

Grabbed from another thread ("Would you buy an old Champion")...
use blendtec to blend then strain the pulp thru a fine metal strainer or paint filter bag
Does the strainer bag strain out all the fiber of pulverized juice from the blender? (Do the pulverized fiber cells pass on through?) Just interested. Thanks. :)

why would you start another thread for this and not just ask in that thread???
the answer is yes. the strainer bag will remove the pulp.

Well, it seemed kind of off topic for the thread which was about buying a blender, not about straining fiber.

I think that if you pour the juice through it will strain all of the pulp. If you squeeze the pulp to extract all the possible juice you might get a small amount of pulp, probably not even enough that you would be able to tell.

Thanks, WestVirginiaRaw. I guess, my husband was asking today what I'm trying to understand myself -- how does fiber work in the digestive tract.
I mean, we know some of the things it does. But more study is required, how strained (fiberless) juice is absorbed as opposed to digested. (Thanks for that, Aleesha.) Very interesting! With a fast, the point is to shut down the digestive system, and I wasn't aware until this last week that strained juice would still allow that.
So much to learn! :)

water puts your digestion to sleep.
juice puts your digestion to rest.
green smoothies allows your digestion to get the most out of all it's food with much less work than simply eating raw.
hope that makes sense to ya.

here's a little something for ya:
Digestion is the mechanical and chemical breaking down of food into smaller components that can be absorbed into a blood stream.
So... when we take our meal as a liquid without any fibre than needs to be broken down. The components are already small and ready to be absorbed!

Thank you very much, Aleesha. I'm going to try to get that through my head! :)
And use it as I sift through that literature, etc.. Sometimes to the uneducated, some of these words are read as the same thing -- like for me, I don't know that I was making a difference as I read between "absorption" and "digestion." That can cause a lot of confusion and misdirection. Still a lot of studying to do, and like everyone else I'm time-sharing.
Ha, I just about said, "and can only absorb so much," but do I mean, "I can only "digest so much" info? They're too different things! Then, there's aDsorption in Chemistry and I have never understood the diff but there is supposed to be one. lol
Okay, thanks again.
