There are a lot of companies that produce cold press juicers. Hurom seems to be one of the most established slow juicer companies in the world. Some people in the cold press juicing industry even consider it the leading slow juicer company in the globe. It distributes its products to over 50 countries worldwide. It has also patented several cold press juicer techniques. The 2nd generation Hurom has won several awards including IDEA Award, Red-Dot Award, 2013 Good-Design Award and 2014 IF Design.
Let's get to know Hurom some more
First, you must know that Hurom has been around since the early ‘70s. It is a company that specializes in cold press juicers only, unlike many others that give their attention to many types of juicers and blenders at once. They invest a lot in research and bettering their products. Must be why they were able to come up with their own patented Technology. The most popular one, ‘slow squeeze' technology, extracts juice from your fruits and veggies by squeezing instead of shredding them like most other juicers and blenders. Why is squeezing better? Your ingredients aren't damaged and they retain their natural taste and nutritional value.
Hurom claims to be interested not only in making money, but in bettering the lives of people all over the world. Hurom is a compound word where Hu means Human and ‘rom' is a Korean word that basically means, ‘better and healthier body'. The company even employs over 500 employees. That should show you how invested they are in bettering people's lives.
Hurom's Slow Squeeze Technology
All Hurom cold press juicers make use of the Hurom's patented ‘Slow Squeeze' Technology (SST). What does this mean for you? It doesn't mean the cold press juicer takes forever to juice your fruits and vegetables. You get 35% more juice extraction with every Hurom cold press juicer when compared to using traditional cold press juicers.
How is this advantageous?
- You save up on the amount of produce you have to buy. We all know Groceries aren't getting any cheaper.
- The naturally concentrated taste is preserved. You will never opt for store ‘fresh juice' again or have to add sugars to make your juices tasty.
- Nutrients are not lost with this unlike when using centrifugal juicers or blenders where heat and oxidation kill all the vital nutrients especially the heat-sensitive ones such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C and live enzymes.
- Slow squeeze technology reduces the chances of oxidation. This means your juice lasts longer in the fridge. Now you don't have to slow juice every day. You can juice a few liters and store them up for the next 3 days (72 hrs.).
