In summer, the weather is hot and many juices are popular. Many people will also buy a juicer at home, squeeze some fruit juice, freeze it and drink it again, and think that after freezing, it can quench their thirst and cool off. Others believe that juice nutrition is more easily absorbed.
Is it really?
As everyone knows, fruit juice, nutrient loss is more serious!
According to tests, the destruction rate of vitamin C is as high as 80% after cucumber juice is compared with before juice. This is because when the juice is being sprayed, the high-speed rotating blade destroys all the cells, and everything in it is mixed. Vitamin C in fruits encounters a variety of oxidases and naturally suffers a lot.
Insoluble fiber, insoluble calcium and other elements in the fruit will be left in the slag in the juice. When juice is squeezed, most of the pomace will be filtered out. The fruit is juiced. The fiber is mainly concentrated in the pomace. When the pomace is thrown away, only the juice is consumed, and a large amount of fiber is naturally lost.
Can you eat the slag after juicing?
The cellulose in fruits has the health care effect of preventing and reducing diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, and can effectively stimulate gastrointestinal motility and promote defecation. Fruit dregs contain a lot of fiber. Eating slag is good for people who need to control constipation and blood lipids. It is not suitable for those who are prone to diarrhea and bloating. And the taste of the slag after fruit juice is very bad. In this case, it is better to eat a whole fruit, which can absorb all the nutrients and has a good taste.
Drinking too much juice can lead to obesity
Fruit juice is squeezed into juice, and it is easier to take in excess if it is concentrated in calories and sugar. A 131-gram orange has a calorie of 62 calories and a sugar content of 12.3 grams. But a cup of 240 ml of orange juice is squeezed with about 3 oranges. The calorie is 112 calories and the sugar is 20.8 grams. The difference between the two is nearly doubled. The average person may have a feeling of fullness when eating an orange, but may drink a glass of orange juice, which is equivalent to three oranges. This invisibly increases the amount of calories and sugars in the body, which unconsciously leads to obesity.
