Putting leafy greens in a blender

Recommended Posts

Does blending (not juicing) leafy green vegetables such as kale and spinach make them lose any nutritional content or absorption qualities? This may have been answered already somewhere on the board and I apologize in advance for that!

It's a double edged sword - you are making them easier to absorb, but also increasing the rate / likeliness of their oxidation. Just drink them up within 15-30 minutes after blending and you should be fine.

Juicers are great but you lose virtually all of the fibre content which is a significant part of the nutritional value of a food.

I sometimes juice and then put the pulp back in. Or bake with it. usually nothing though because I usually only juice carrots and oranges and I don't need the fibre from them, just their sweet, sweet carotenes.
