There has been an ongoing hot debate on which process gives more nutrients. And as a Blendtec Blender follower, you probably wonder: can Blendtec Blenders make juices?

We’ll keep you in suspense about the answer.

In the meantime, let’s dissect the difference between blending and juicing. Consider this a prelude to yummy recipe ideas ahead!

All About Juicing

There’s nothing like a cold glass of fresh fruit juice to quench your thirst on a hot day!

But more than just being a thirst quencher, juices give you larger quantities of nutrients that are readily available to your body than if you were to eat the fruits or vegetables whole.

The process of juicing means extracting the water and nutrient from a whole fruit or vegetable and discarding the indigestible fibre.

Because of this, juices do not need your digestive system to do its work on the food – the nutrients are instantly absorbed by the body – in fact, in your blood stream and cells!

The debate against juicing, as matter of fact, lies in its quick absorption.

Because the nutrients instantly get absorbed, it can cause spikes in blood sugar levels, or cause the blood sugar to be unstable.

Moreover, people would complain of feeling hungry one or two hours after they drank a glass of freshly juiced fruit, because of the lack of dietary fibre that should help make us feel full. What comes with hunger? Energy loss, nausea, or even mood swings!

How About Blending?

All that juice moved aside, in comes blending. Whole foods that are blended also allow for easy and faster digestion, but blended foods generally do not cause sudden spikes in blood sugar nor do they give you a rumbly in your tumbly sooner than you can say Winnie The Pooh!

The fibre in blended foods helps regulate the nutrient absorption in your body. Thus, blended fruits and vegetables serve as a filling and a healthy treat.

Blending smoothies also takes lesser the time than their juice counterparts. This makes blended foods ideal for breakfast, a time when most people rush out to work or to the school.

A lot of people report feeling more energetic drinking blended foods than juices, and this is because in blending, the essential dietary fibre from the whole foods exists.
