The pressure cooker is an interesting invention of the modern world. It was designed to save cooking time by forcing food to cook quickly under extreme steam pressure. Pressure is created by boiling a liquid (mostly water) inside the closed pot. The trapped steam increases the internal pressure and allows the temperature to rise, which forces food to cook quickly. In the end, the pressure is slowly released so the lid can be opened safely.
A conventional pressure cooker is a metal pot – made from aluminum or stainless steel. These are reactive metals and therefore toxic to food.
Problems with cooking in a toxic material:
Metals are reactive, they leach and react with food at cooking temperature. This contaminates food and regular intake of such food accumulates metal toxins in your tissues, organs, and blood. As a result, the immune system starts wearing down and your body is prone to sickness – which may range from common illnesses or even life-threatening diseases.
Secondly, the harsh heat from metal walls destroys delicate nutrients. As a result, your body will stay deficient in essential nutrients and this creates a nutritional imbalance – a common cause of diseases like diabetes (for example, complex carbs that slow down the release of sugar are destroyed in metal pots).
The Essential Water-soluble nutrients are gone!
Besides the issue of the metals, the cooking mechanism itself is destructive to water-soluble nutrients. The steam going out of the pot is water soluble nutrients – the body needs them on a daily basis. If you are not getting them from food, there is no other natural way to fulfill the body’s requirement.
So, What makes an Ideal Pressure cooker, which is the most non-toxic material?
Unglazed primary clay or pure clay is a naturally inert material that can be harvested from earth’s surface. It has absolutely no metals or chemical toxins. If no glazes are used, it can make an 100% non-toxic cooking pot that is ideal for pressure cooking. Pure Clay has been used for making cookware for ages until few decades ago when metal cookware came into practice.
This material does not destroy essential nutrients when cooking:
The unique far infrared heat from pure clay penetrates food deeper but without destroying nutrients. And this is done just on medium heat!
Naturally condenses steam and keeps it in the food!
An ergonomically designed pot and lid can manage steam inside. When designed the right way and using this pure material the lid stays cooler than the pot. So, the steam rising from the food condenses on the inner side of lid and settles back into the food keeping water-soluble nutrients inside!
Is 100% Non-toxic so does not leach toxins into your food:
We saw the problem with metal cookware… it’s just the opposite with pure clay cooking pots. It is a 100% inert or non-reactive material so nothing from the pot leaches into your food!
By switching to this ideal pressure cooker, you can be sure you are cooking 100% non-toxic food rich in essential nutrients that nourish your body with every meal – no more nutritional deficiencies and no more toxins accumulating in your body.
