Fats in juices

We can make our juices very nutritious and wholesome. Now that we are getting vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and some protein (If milk or soya or tofu is used), we can try getting some fats too.

Good fats are unsaturated fats and essential fatty acids. The following oils have good fats in them and can be added to your juice recipes. Only a small dash is needed each day and the impact on the flavour of the juice may not be noticeable. If you find that the flavour of the oil containing juice puts you off then drink most of the juice and add the oil to the last few mouthfuls. You then get the most enjoyment out of the bulk of your great tasting juice.

Oils you can add to your juice recipes include:

Fish Oil – a source of omega 3 essential fatty acids
Evening Primrose oil – a source of omega 6 fatty acids
Flaxseed Oil – a source of omega 3 essential fatty acids
Cod liver oil – vitamin A and vitamin D as well as omega 3 fatty acids.
As well as the provision of the right types of fats to your body, these oils can also help the body intake fat soluble vitamins that your fruit and vegetable juices contain.

Fats have attained a very bad reputation but the above fats are very much required for our health and if we are not getting it through food, lets get it through our juices.
