The Hurom Slow Juicer is a juice extractor that uses the patented Low Speed Technology System (LSTS). It is called a "Slow Juicer" because it operates at only 80 RPM and uses a mere 150 Watts of energy, instead of 1,000-24,000 RPM and up to 1,500 Watts of energy like a typical centrifugal "High Speed" juicer. But don't let the name fool you. The Slow Juicer actually juices faster than most typical juicers and expels much drier pulp with a much higher yield.
The method of extraction is masticating and pressing, using the screw-like auger like a mortar and pestle. The action crushes and presses the food, releasing its deep-seated nutrients and enzymes. It also breaks up more of the phytonutrients, resulting in a richer colored juice that retains more vitamins and minerals. The slow RPM ensures that it does not disrupt the cellular structure of fruits and vegetables, eliminating oxidation and separation. Thus, it preserves the precious enzymes and nutrients that are closest to its natural form.
