do the beets have to be cooked for the beet juice?
- Luna Regina
Beets have a high water content, so they don’t need to be cooked in advance to give juice :D. Steaming/boiling the beets helps if you want the earthy smell to be less intense, but the juice will not be as concentrated.
Our juicer is cold-press juicer, so we got the most juice out of the vegs/fruits. If you want to cook them because your juicer has trouble juicing raw beets, you can chop the beets finely so they’re easier to work with, plus preserving the original flavors of beets :D.
Thank you for asking and please don’t hesitate to talk with us if you have more questions!
