Reverse Juicing (I don't know what to call it)

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 09, 2013 at 8:01 PM

So I noticed when my parents are juicing apples for martinis etc, it leaves a lot of "pulp" lets call it in a hopper. I was thinking, would that pulp be the healthiest part of the fruit? For people on a low fruit diet, or simply low carb, and need fiber is it a wise choice to eat the pulp and give the fresh juice to friends/family who don't care about the fructose?

Yea... My dad likes to bar tend for friends, and not everyone enjoys a neat glass of knob creek or whatever. Personally, I drank beer and rum & coke, until I started paleo. I had a bartender make me NorCal Margarita today (had to explain it to him), but that's easily the best drink for me, it's delicious. Do want to try Dark rum and coconut water some time.

Does the pectin go into the juice, or stay in the pulp?

Oh... I liked it haha, and I don't mind pretending to be a gorilla when I eat it... I was eating straight from the hopper though, not trying to find a new use. I will say, I love to eat some crappy food (not junk), but like just very plain and unappealing some times for a change from the over stimulating. I like to think of it as kind of monastic, backing away from over stimulation to appreciate more later.

i agree with VB. the pulp is pretty gross. i used to juice a lot and tried to use the pulp for things like crackers and breads. the texture is just really off and not pleasant.

I added a reverse-juicing tag for you, interesting concept for sure.

+1 for inventing a new term. That pulp does not taste good and fresh juice is delicious. If you have a gorilla as a pet, you can give it to him. Or you can add it to your meatloaf / soups. Alternatively, you can blend fruits and vegetables.

You know what bugs me the most about this scenario?

Your parents are juicing apples for martinis.

Martini

  1. Gin
  2. Vermouth
  3. Olives (amount and dirtiness up to the drinker)

To answer your questions, though ... apples aren't particularly nutritious to begin with. For apple lovers out there, don't worry - they aren't particularly bad either. You certainly could use the pulp for whatever you'd like, but you basically have sugar, and some soluble and insoluble fiber. Not terribly appetizing, but definitely edible.

When I was a juicing vegetarian in grad school, we used to juice carrots and beets and then take the bright orange and purple red pulp and sculpt in into heads with grotesque faces which we would let dry in the windowsill...think acid dayglo appleheads (if you've ever seen an applehead doll). Somehow they would eventually get thrown against the side of the house and smashed, but there was always a competition for making the gnarliest head...

Yeah I would say it would be a good source of fiber. This recipe for a high-protein, low-carb bread uses fruit and vegetable pulp in it http://www.proteinpow.com/2012/12/the-incredible-low-carb-and-low-fat.html

as does this one for high protein carrot cake http://www.proteinpow.com/2012/11/quite-possibly-one-of-most-nutritious.html

If you use whey protein and make a few tweak both recipes could be considered paleo.
