anyone know if these are any good?

Well I have a NutriBullet and our Kenwood blender is as good and that cost me £21. Our NutriBullet is the higher powered version.

Well worth the £29.99 in my opinion - bought the other day as an upgrade to an old blender and I love it! Solid build, very powerful and makes my smoothies in no time at all, and completely smooth (no bits)

Salter Nutri pro at £39.99 are a very good machine if you want a true contender to the Nutri Bullet. I have one and friends with the nutri bullet are envious. Better at a lower cost.

NB 600 from John Lewis £39 or this? oO

if it's too smooth then not much if any goodness left in it, it's best if you leave it with very small bits as that would leave some fiber in the fruit and this is what we need from the fruit and veg.

So the fibre just magically disappears because it's been blended smooth?

Good old broscience. None of this sentence makes sense.

the more the fruit and veg is blended to a pulp the less fiber there is left, I didn't make it up I just researched it, a quick Google and will will see for yourself

I'd like to see a source for that, can't find anything reputable to confirm what you're saying.

I'd like to see a source for that, can't find anything reputable to confirm what you're saying.

So I reached out to David Katz, director of the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center at Yale University, which is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for another perspective.

Maintaining a regular smoothie habit is "not nearly as good" as eating the same amount of fruit in its native state.
In an emailed note, he wrote that while the blending process "certainly [has] an effect" on fiber, there has been little research documenting precisely how much it breaks down insoluble fiber and reduces the benefits of fruit. He added, "Let's face it: Chewing grinds up fiber to some extent, too." That said, "we have a fairly solid basis for saying: Whole food is best," he wrote.

For one thing, "blenderizing takes away chewing, which reduces the time spent eating" and may inspire you to take in more. Also, "fluids are less filling than solids." Finally, he added, turning foods into liquids markedly raises their glycemic load, which is a measure of how much a particular amount of food affects blood sugar and insulin levels. Indeed, a whole apple has a glycemic load of 6, while a serving of apple juice clocks in at 30—higher even than Coca-Cola, at 16.

Thanks for that, although it doesn't confirm what you were claiming at all.. According to what he's saying:-

1. Blending has an effect on the fibre, but we don't know what that effect is.
2. A reduction in the time spent eating which may inspire further eating. I'd argue that you're more likely to have these 'on the go' and not have more food available around you to binge.
3. Apple juice has a high GI index - yes but that's different to blending whole fruit.

In summary, sure, blending isn't as good as having whole fruit - but it's better than many other options eg unhealthy snacking.

So I reached out to David Katz....

Sorry for the bad tone, but you read over what you wrote right. LetoKynes has put it better than me, but David Katz appears to be a notable idiot!
