A cold press juicer is designed to compress fruit or vegetables instead of shredding them like centrifugal juicers or blenders do. A cold pressed juicer reduces fruit and vegetables into a smooth pulp, then pushes the pulp through a fine mesh strainer. This ensures a higher yield of juice with less pulp which produces a better tasting, more nutritious and healthier juice. Cold press juicing produces very little to no heat and preserves all the nutrients in the juice. If you are looking to juice leafy greens and vegetables along with some smaller amounts of fruit the Oscar neo 1000 cold press juicer is a good choice for you as many cheaper brands juicers don’t juice greens very well or at all.

Green leafy vegetables contain the most vitamins and nutrients which will make you feel infinitely better after drinking a cold pressed green juice. Typically the guidelines for making cold pressed green juice is 60% dark green leafy vegetables and 40% other vegetables/fruits. You can try variations of any of the green recipes until you find one that suits your needs and tastes. If you are making a whole day’s worth of juice at one time, keep the extra juice in a tightly sealed container in the fridge. When you use the Oscar neo 1000 cold press juicer it operates at 200 rpm and under. This method of slow non-heat producing extraction keeps all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fibre in their core form – right from the vegetable or fruit – and delivers them directly into your system with each glass of cold pressed juice. The difference with centrifugal juicers is that the fast-spinning metal blade generates heat, which destroys some of the enzymes in the fruits and vegetables you’re juicing. The heat oxidizes those nutrients, rendering less nutritious juice than a cold press juicer.
