How Much Produce Makes 1 Cup of Juice?

We get a lot of questions about juice yield, and for good reason. Before investing in a high-quality juicer, you want to make sure you’ll get the most juice from your produce. 

To demonstrate how much juice Kuvings whole slow juicers can extract, we weighed, juiced, and measured the yield of 6 popular ingredients. 

Masticating juicers crush and press ingredients to extract juice, similar to how we chew our food. This process typically yields more juice than centrifugal juicers, and works just as fast. To show this, we also measured how much time it takes to produce 1 cup of juice.

Note: juice yield will vary based on the quality of your produce. Fresh fruits and vegetables provide the highest yield, and they also provide the best taste and texture. Similarly, juicing speed will vary based on the size and quality of the ingredients.
