What's the difference between juicing and blending?

By Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.

Juicing extracts liquid from fresh fruits and vegetables. This liquid contains most of the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients but very little of the fiber found in whole fruits and vegetables. Blending, on the other hand, purees the edible parts of fruits and vegetables. Thus, less fiber is lost. Blending also results in higher levels of phytonutrients than juicing does.
