How Tritulating Juicers Help to Minimize Agrochemical Residues in Your Juice

Traditional farmers use chemical fertilizers to the soil to grow their crops and insecticide sprays to get rid of insects and disease. They also control weed growth by applying synthetic herbicides. Did you know that apples have usually been sprayed around 22 times before they reach the shops and commercially grown carrots are often used as a crop to “clean” the soil?

The result is that conventionally grown foods are tainted with chemical and pesticide residues, which are extremely harmful for our consumption.

So, what can we do about it?

Two Options:

The easy way to get the healthiest juice is to use organic produce whenever possible to avoid adding more pesticides and herbicides to your body. However, if organic is too expensive or out of reach in where you live, then consider the second option: Invest in a tritulating (twin gear) juicer. This is not a typo. Tritulating juicers have the ability to remove a high percentage of agricultural chemicals and heavy metals through the unique extraction process. Let me explain…

Juicer Buying Guide

As a quick and dirty guess, 90% of people will go for a centrifugal juicer when they think or want to make fresh juices from fruits & vegetables. Nothing wrong with that, since centrifugal juicers are more commonplace, and generally, more affordable.

centrifugal bladesCentrifugal juicers typically utilize fast-spinning metal blades that spins at high speed (about 5,000-14,000 rpm!) against a mesh filter, then separating juice from ingredients by centrifugal force. The juice and pulp are then separated into different containers. The problem with centrifugal juicers are:

1. The fast-spinning metal blades cut up the molecules and breaking up the embedded agro chemicals in the fibers of the produce (fruits or veggies), while at the same time, break up the chemicals thus causing them to be released into the juice that’s being extracted.

2. The fast-spinning action generates heat, which destroys some of the enzymes in the fruits and vegetables you’re juicing. The heat also oxidizes those nutrients, rendering less nutritious juice than a cold-press juicer.

And we consume these contaminated, less nutritious juices!

Twin Gear On the other hand, According to the founder of the “Living Juice” machine – Dr Norman Walker, tritulating juicers have the ability to remove a high level of agricultural chemicals and heavy metals through the triturating and squeezing process between two cylindrical stainless steel augers/gears that sit side by side. Produce is pulverised by sharp teeth as it’s fed through the machine.

The Principle of Dr. Norman Walker:

If leaves, stalks or roots are squashed by using steel plates, stones or wood mortars and squeezed, enveloped by hemp cloth, juice and sap penetrate and only fibre waste remains. The degree of affinity of fibre for agricultural chemicals and heavy metals is so high that they remain together with the fibre waste. This is how the triturating process can obtain pure juice eliminating a high amount of agricultural chemicals and heavy metals by rotating twin gears, crushing vegetables and squeezing pulp through the fine screen that acts the same as a hemp cloth.

The Economy:

Purchasing a tritulating juicer is a one-time investment. You can use non-organic produce (cheaper then organic) to make juice. Whereas buying organic produce is an on-going process that can cost you a lot of money in the long run.

Therefore, investing in a high quality tritulating juicer for your juicing needs is far more economical than buying organic produce.
