Presently, there are so many products available in the market that claim to have the ability to process vegetable and fruit juices that taste amazing while retaining the most amount of nutrients from the vegetable and fruit fibers. These juicers – also known as cold press juicers or masticating juicers – do a good job of extracting juice from different fruits and vegetables.
While they may be among the newest products, they have grown in popularity and have led to the opening of various cold press juice bars and restaurants.
