Pulp Free Juice – How to Guide


When I made juice cleanses for clients on my Norwalk, it made a 100% pulp free juice. I started taking it for granted that my juice wouldn’t have any bits in it. But after closing down my juice bar and selling my Norwalk to a friend who wanted to start a juicing business, I began making juice again in “normal” juicers, e.g. Omega VRT350HD and Froothie Optimum 600.

Now, before you think I’m criticising these machines, I’m not. But I think most people that use a vertical masticating style juicer would agree that they make a relatively pulpy juice. If I’m making a freshly squeezed OJ or a GLO juice, the pulp level is perfect. There’s nothing like freshly squeezed orange juice with bits!

However, for me, I prefer drinking most other juices with less pulp. So what I do is sieve the juice as soon as I’ve made it. That way I get a nice smooth juice and a bowl of pulp to eat. It has a really nice mushy texture, kind of like Weetabix that have soaked in milk for a while.

Should I Sieve My Juice?

This all comes down to personal preference. Some juicers make pulpier juices than others. If you are using a centrifugal juicer, you will probably have less need to sieve. But vertical masticating juicers usually tend to make a much pulpier juice, so you may prefer to sieve.

My general rule is to sieve juices I’m going to drink as a juice. But not bother sieving if I am going to use the juice in a smoothie.
