    Are vitamins from fruit lost when using a juicer?

    Related Topic
    I love making fresh juice at home however I heard that the intense processing can break down the vitamins. Am I losing a lot of nutrition by turning the whole fruit into juice?

    The role of fruit in the diet is to provide some A and B Vitamins, some fibre but predominantly Vitamin C. Vitamin C begins to oxidise on exposure to air, so the more you chop up a fruit the more exposure to air there is. 
    Juicing fruit would not be called intense processing and the loss of the Vitamins would be small, unlike the purchase of commercial fruit juices where the Vitamin C needs to be replaced artificially.
    However the loss of fibre is enormous when drinking fruit juice, so keep the pulp from the juicer!
