The humble pear is a delicious fruit and is also a great source of fiber. Pears are also great for juicing! They contain pectin which is a soluble fiber that acts as pre-biotic in the intestines. These pre-biotics feed the healthy gut bacteria which results in an overall better digestion and health, and best of all, the soluble fibers are also contained in your fresh juice. These fibers are the reason your juice will be a little thick.
Pears give a great taste to any juices, especially recipes containing greens and other vegetables. For best results when juicing make sure you choose a pear that is hard and not soft and mushy as this will not juice well at all and are better for blending.
In early fall pears grow here in my country of Norway and a lot of people have them in their own backyards. Do pears grow in your county and if so what kinds? Let me know in the comment section:)
