Approximately 95% of the nutritional contents of both vegetables and fruit are located within the juice. Liquids removed from fresh vegetables and fruit form an significant element of a balanced eating plan. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are easily made and can provide a great supply of vitamins and minerals.

While you formulate juices for yourself, you will have absolute power over which pieces of produce you incorporate into your juice. You decide on what produce will be incorporated into your juice and you make a decision about whether you require sugar, salt or any other flavoring agents.
Any recently removed juices must be drunk very shortly after the time they were prepared to circumvent the loss of vitamins.
Purchasing and storage of vegetables and fruit:
- Wash all vegetables and fruit to be juiced before juicing them.
- Only use fresh vegetables and fruit for juicing.
- In order to ensure that you spend less money and acquire fresh products, buy fruit or vegetables that are currently in season.
Always wash vegetables and fruit before you put them into storage to ensure that your vegetables and fruit are always available to juice.
Most fruits and hardier type vegetables can be stored at room temperature. The more delicate and perishable items such as tomatoes, berries, leafy greens, celery, cucumbers and herbs should be stored in the refrigerator until required.
Preparation of vegetables and fruit:
When you are planning to juice fruits that have hard or inedible skins for example mangoes, guava, melons or pineapple, make sure that at all times you skin the fruit prior to the juicing process.
It is possible to juice citrus fruit in the Breville 800 Juicer if the fruit is skinned beforehand.
Any fruits that have pits, hard seeds or stones for example nectarines, peaches, mangoes, apricots, plums and cherries have to be pitted prior to the juicing process.
When you have made fresh apple juice, you can add a little bit of lemon juice to ensure that the juice does not turn brown.
