Wheatgrass is a wonder product for health freaks. This vitamin and mineral enriched product is a great way to ensure your daily intake of these vital ingredients. This miracle product can be grown indoors and outdoors and many health professionals are purchasing wheatgrass kits that enable them to grow their very own wheatgrass in a simple tray. However this product cannot be eaten and needs to be converted into a drink before consumption.
Thus if you need your daily dose of wheatgrass the only option available to you is to invest in a wheatgrass juicer.
Wheatgrass extraction will not work on the standard juicers available in the market. This fiber rich plant will clog normal juicers and damage them while also suffering oxidation. Wheatgrass juicers are specially designed to crush and extract the health potion stored in the plant’s leaves with relative ease. Having such a wheatgrass juicer at home proves extremely handy as they instantly convert wheatgrass to your magic potion giving you immediate access to this vital product.
There are two kinds of juicers available for this wonder product – the manual wheatgrass juicer and electric wheatgrass juicer, both having its own inherent advantages. Manual wheatgrass juicers are compact and lightweight and can be carried around easily. In manual wheat juicers you put in a handful of plant in the fill cup and turn the handle which will spur the masticating device to crush the leaves and extract the juice. It does not require major strenuous effort to turn the handle of this lightweight machine but ensure your machine has a suction base or clamping device for table top support. You can get up to one ounce of juice with one minute’s operation of the machine. Manual juicers can also be taken apart and cleaned thoroughly after its use.
Electric wheatgrass juicers generate around two ounces of liquid per minute. While most manual juicers are lightweight, electric juicers are sturdier. Twin gear electric juicers can also crush nuts and fruits and other vegetables along with wheatgrass. While investing in electric juicers do not get the centrifugal kind as it actually grates the leaf and its fast heavy rotations destroys the enzymes of the leaf. They are not suited for wheatgrass but instead settle for either single gear juicers which can only be used for wheatgrass or twin gear juicer though twin gear juicers will cost a little more. Ultimately your choice should be based on your overall use and requirement and the various other juicing requirements that you may have.
