Juicer foam

I've googled this and I all get is "live with it" - but maybe somebody here has tips.

When one uses a juicer at home, is the thickish foam formation inevitable or can anything to added to the juicer or glass to reduce it? Its a first world problem, clearly , but maybe somebody cracked it?

Re: Juicer foam

It happens with my juicer when I load up the machine too slowly, or when I use too many leafy stuff. Try to alternate between soft and hard veggies/fruits..one piece of apple, then kale, then carrot, then kale etc...

Re: Juicer foam

Never yet found a way

I tend to let it settle for a bit before pouring and my extraction jug has a plate so it pours from midway down the liquid, works well enough if you're slow.

A friend decants into a special jug that takes liquid from the bottom, but as far as stopping the actual foam formation...... Pass

What machine did you end up getting?

Best,
David

Speak to vegan chef on what to do with it, he'll come up with a 5 course meal that will add 20 years to your life.

A Solis Juice Fountain Pro centrifugal one. I couldn't find any of the others that were recommended and I was too impatient to wait

Very happy with it and the jug does separate the foam as yours, but I hoped there was a better way

Re: Juicer foam

Mate, What you need is a vacuum bell jar.
Do all your juicing at ~0.001 Torr for instant froth free goodness.

Re: Juicer foam

Apologies, its late.
A vacuum chamber would give you more froth.. you need a pressure chamber which might cost an extra few quid... but still worth it for the perfect glass of juice.

Re: Juicer foam

Easy fix: just buy a sieve and pour it once through into a glass when you've finished juicing.

I have the Philips HR1861 and no problems with that so far.

Yeah - I guess I was looking for a food science geek to tell me that if you sprinkle the fruit with a tiny amount of cornflour or rub the inside of the jug with lemon juice that it created a reaction which etc etc etc, but I guess not

Re: Juicer foam

Try this:

Quote:
The emulsion type organic silicon defoamer was prepared using a paste composed of dimethyl silicone and silicon dioxide as the main material,and the PESO were added,Span-Tween blend as emulsifying agent.The emulsification process was carried out under water phase condition in a conventional mixing device.The effect factors of defoamer properties,stability and capacity of defoamer agent were discussed.Due to the defoamer agent is nontoxic,so it can be used in the food industry.
They've been doing it for years in China.

Re: Juicer foam

Sprinkle some salt on top, then stir it in after a bit. Will probably enhance the favour too and give you an isoton-"isch" drink to boot.

(Or potassium chloride instead of sodium chloride if your cutting down on salt)

BTW this is just a wild speculation, but assuming the NaCl will cause enought surface tension reduction to pop the little foam bubbles.

Thank you. I have an attachment on my food processor. But it's so horrible I just never bother.

Will ask Santa to bring me one!
