The Benefits of Using a Steam Juicer

Everyone knows that it is necessary to get a certain amount of fruits and vegetables in our diets, because of the nutrients and vitamins they contain. These vitamins and nutrients can also be found in juice made from fresh fruits and vegetables, and can be made at home for a fraction of the price of buying prepared juices at the supermarket.

Regular Juicers vs. Steam Juicers

For many years, people all over the world have been using juicers to extract the juice from their fruits. This has been a great way to get juice, but, even though the juice provides many vitamins and nutrients, there are just as many that get lost in the juicing process. Because juicers get hot, they do heat the fruits and vegetables somewhat, which causes them to lose many of the vital nutrients.

Steam juicers on the other hand work in an entirely different manner from traditional juicers. Instead of crushing the fruits to extract the juice, steam juicers use steam to press the juice out, giving the user 100% juice which has lost none of the nutrients of the original foods used.

How Do Steam Juicers Work?

One of the really great things about steam juicers is the fact that you do not have to peel and seed the fruits before juicing. This makes the job a whole lot easier, and a lot less time consuming. Basically, you place the cut up fruit (you can use grapes and berries whole), inside the top section of the steam juicer, and water in the bottom section. The water is boiled, creating steam.

The steam actually gets right through the skins of grapes and berries, and forces the juices out, extracting them through a straw-like tube. Not only can steam juicers be used to make delicious juices, they can also be used to make soups and jellies, and can even be used to cook some meats, such as small roasts and chicken breasts, which come out extremely tender, juicy and delicious. You can even make concentrates that can be stored for months, even years. So, you can actually say that a steam juicer is a meal-maker.

The NutriSteamer

The NutriSteamer by Back to Basics is a multi-purpose steamer which can make delicious juices and jellies, soups, meats, and steamed vegetables, for an all-in-one meal-making machine. And, it is so easy to use! All you have to do is add water to the bottom section of the NutriSteamer and your fruits in the top section. The juice is extracted through a heat-resistant tube that is surgical quality.

Not only is the NutriSteamer a product that you will use over and over again, it is great-looking too. The NutriSteamer is made from polished stainless steel, and is a great addition to any kitchen.

So, if you are looking for a great way to get the most nutrients from your juice, and don’t want to pay the supermarket prices for ready-made juices, a steamer is the way to go. For more information about the NutriSteamer, you can click here.

    I just bought a steam juicer and am learning all I can do with it. I assumed that because heat was involved that nutrients would be lost. I am just trying to save money. Good News. thanks

      Heyya!! COOL! Yes, these things are WONDERFUL. Do you have a NutriSteamer? Or something else? We just found out today that the NutriSteamer is going to be discontinued…but…we are replacing it with the Victorio Stainless Steel juicer.

    With a juicer steamer for most fruits and vegetables it would seem there would be some loss of nutrients. How does that loss compare to say a centrifugal juicer

      Yes, there will be some nutrient loss because of the heat. I am unsure of exact data on nutrient loss – but there will be more with the steamer simply because of the heat. Centrifugal juicers have loss as well – but a “Masticating” juicer (http://www.877myjuicer.com/juicers/wheatgrass-juicers.html) have virtually NO nutrient loss due to the low speed of the juicer.
