Ginger is a staple ingredient, and the Breville Juicer extracts its zingy flavor beautifully, which is also preserved during cooking.
There is a setting for hard and soft fruits and vegetables, as well as a setting for leafy greens such as wheatgrass.
So, all you have to do is select the hard fruit mode. You also might have to chop up the ginger first depending on its size.
Ginger is quite a strong taste so many people mix a small piece of raw ginger into other juices such as carrot. Ginger is a really powerful anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antiviral.
How To Juice Ginger In A Breville Juicer
Ginger is a herb that has been used for centuries in Indian and Chinese medicine. It is most commonly used to treat digestive issues like nausea, stomach cramps, and gas.
It is also used to treat arthritis, fight the effects of aging, and for its anti-inflammatory properties. If you are using ginger in the kitchen, you probably have a few different forms on hand.
Fresh ginger is the most popular form of the herb, and it is used in both savory and sweet recipes.
But, if you want to infuse your favorite juices with ginger this video shows you how easy it is.

How Much Ginger Should I Put In My Juicer?
Well, the answer to this will vary according to taste, and really the best way to determine how much ginger to put in your juice or smoothie is to start with a small amount, and then increase it as you see fit.
Remember it does possess a strong taste and too much can be too overpowering.
Ginger is one of the best ingredients for a fresh juice because it is cleansing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-nausea.
Most people recommend 2 or more inches of ginger root per liter of juice to get the optimal health benefits.
TIP: 1 pound of ginger root yields around 300 ml of juice.
Do I Need To Peel Ginger For Juicing?
No, you do not need to peel ginger before juicing. Just cut it up to the sizes you want and start juicing.
Ginger juice is great taken on its own but also blends well with fruits and vegetables.
The peel on ginger is very thin, and most of the time it’s what you’re eating when you eat ginger.
However, if you’d prefer to have more of a ginger taste without the peel, you can certainly peel the ginger before adding it to your juicing machine.
