If you worry that juicing vegetables causes them to lose some of their nutritional value, a food manufacturer in Japan has an impossibly convoluted solution for you.
In a 2014 ad for Kagome
, which is retrending ahead of Vegetable Day in Japan next month, actors demonstrate a process where juice is extracted without ruining a vegetable's shape.
A tomato, cucumber, eggplant and even a juicy ... onion are wrapped in protective plastic, and lowered into a tank of water that's been wired to produce a controlled underwater explosion. The shockwaves pulverise the insides of the vegies, rendering juice accessible via a straw.
It's safe to say you won't need to replace your blender any time soon.
