One the many merits of juicing with masticating juicers lies in the fact that their low operational speed helps to protect the enzymes within the produce without heating them up during extraction. Any heat generated during the extractive process can denature the enzymes thereby destroying the nutrients. This fact alone makes the Omega J8004 worth every single penny its being sold for.
The extraction process is done in two separate stages with the resultant effect being a much higher yield of extracted juice. . The dual stage masticating extraction results in healthy, fresh juice with a high enzyme content. The first extraction step involves the slow and methodical crushing of the fruit or vegetable. The second phase is done by squeezing the pulp which results in a substantially higher yield of extracted juice as well as a very dry pulp.
With less foaming than the double geared juicer, this unit is perfect for homogenizing and frozen desserts. The mastication process of juicing keeps oxidation in check and enables the extracted juice to remain fresh in the freezer for upwards of 48 hours without getting spoiled.
The fact that it is a durable product is evident from the high grade plastic material that was used to manufacture most of its parts. The GE Ultem auger material employed in building most of its parts is built to withstand even the toughest juicing jobs.
