Hey there, stuman. No, the process of juicing takes away all the fiber and a lot of the nutrients found in fresh, whole foods. The NutriBullet and NutriBullet Rx both keep all the fiber and nutrients in tact, for a healthy drink or soup contains all those good-for-you components. Unlike juicing, you can also adjust the consistency of your drink by adding more liquid to your Blast, so you have something that resembles more of a juice, or less liquid, so you have a thicker, more smoothie-like drink. Cheers!
