    We have one in our cafe, but I never use it, and it's rare to have somebody order a drink made from it.

    Hope I don't get banned for this...

    Why does sending a piece of fruit through a juicer eliminate it's nutritional value? Can the same be said for putting fruit in a blender with a protein shake

    Most juicers I've seen strain it as well. Thus removing the fiber and what not.

    To the topic at hand, I found that if u want juice but dont have a juicer, u can use a blender. Cut up the fruit/vegetables, blend them well, and strain out the chunks and viola. I realize this isnt as good as an actual juicer, but it gets the job done.

    I heard the benefit gain was like a trade off: what you lose from the strain, like pulp and such, you get back from nutrients garnered from the husk/rind/peel/outside, that you normally wouldn't eat. This is to say, of course, if you are putting the WHOLE fruit in. A friend of mine has a juicer, and he runs apples, oranges, potatoes, and carrots in his for his "super drink" all damn day. Anyways, that's just what I had heard, don't own one myself.

    I swear, seen him do it, and I even tried it. After juiced, it's like thick milk or butter-milk. If you put the ingredients in there one at a time, the drink become slayered, with the different colours. I guess it makes it look better than it will taste. I think he might have been just being silly, I am not sure if he still does the potatoes, but he lives by that juicer of his.
