View Full Version : Non-organic good for Masticating Juicers?
01-02-2011, 05:51 AM
I am a TOTAL newbie in the juicing world. I am reading as much info as I can with the obvious conclusion that you have to "Weed out" the false statements.
I can across this site,
that states that it is okay to use non organic in masticating juicers as these juicers will not release the harmful pesticides in the juice.
Immediately, I went into the "...that's a bunch of crap" statement. But vowing to keep an open mind, I will ask the advice of the more informed on this forum.
Is using non-organic SAFER in a masticating juicer than a centrifugal one?

At the core of each of these rotating gears are in-line magnets that produce a focused magnetic field of 4200 gauss that affect the juices during the juicing process.
As the juice flows through this strong focused field, the water molecules in the juice are broken up to allow the atoms to be recombined with other minerals such as calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium into new molecular structures.
This process maximize the use of the mineral nutrients from the juice and keeps the minerals in a suspended colloidal form that feeds the body for a longer period of time.
Even the juice bowl is magnetized at the base to help keep the juice fresher for longer.
Now this info below sounds a bit far fetched to me. It sounds as if this is not an independant site and has a vested interest.
There is a specially formulated bioceramic material that wraps around the in-line magnets at the core of the twin gears (see picture above). This compound uses the mechanical energy from the twin gears when they are turning, to generate far-infrared waves.
These far-infrared waves penetrate the water within the juice, radiate it, and further stabilize the fragile structure of the juice.
So, what does it mean to you when we say that the juice is "stable"? This means that the molecules in the juice stay stable for a much longer time, preserving the efficacy of the delicate nutrients when you drink it. It preserves and enhances the taste, color and the smell of the juice.

Now the above info sounds a bit farfetched to me. This site does not seem to be independent and have a vested interest in selling these juicers.

Yeah, that sounds ridiculous. I sometimes use non-organic if I can't get the organic. Since I use mostly carrots, I will speak to that. Non-organic carrots should be carefully washed and cut about an inch off of the stem end. That is were most of the pesticides will reside. Don't peel them as most of the nutrients are close to the surface of the carrot.
I try to use organic where I can but either way, non-organic carrot juice is much better than NO carrot juice at all!!:D

I was watching a demo on the net of the norwalk yesterday and they said that the carrots were to be peeled.
I was surprised by this and assumed that it was to reduce oxidation but do not know for sure.

That is puzzling:confused: I never peel mine and I don't glow in the dark or anything!!;)

Supposedly, the toxic substances have an affinity for the fibrous material the pulp essentially represents. Thus much of the heavy metals and pesticides go out with the pulp while you get to enjoy pure juice. I'd take this with a grain of salt, though. Either rinse it thoroughly or peel it.
