01. Technology - Auger
The science of nutrient preservation:
Juicing ingredients at high rotational speeds, ranging from a few thousand to tens of thousands of rotations per minute, can result in accelerated rates of oxidation. And depending on its length, the auger allows different amounts of oxygen to enter the juicer and make contact with the ingredients. The high pressure produced by the auger is not enough to guarantee the production of high-quality juice; pressing juice well requires some science. The auger used in Hurom slow juicers is made from a strong plastic called polyetherimide (PEI), which is ideal for use in high-pressure environments. By rotating at 43 rpms, our PEI auger minimizes oxidation, thereby maximizing the nutrient content of the juices it produces.
