The health of your food is determined by a). its nutritional value, and b). the absence of metals and chemical toxins in it. Would you have ever thought your cookware plays a major part in both these aspects? Let’s see how the choice of cookware determines the health of your food:
1. The health of your food is determined by how pure or contaminated the food is
Conventional cookware made from metals, ceramics, glazes, and enamels are full of toxins. These react to food while cooking and contaminate it. Lead, Arsenic, Nickel, Molybdenum, Cadmium and other metals & chemicals are commonly found in most cookware, which start accumulating in your body when you eat food cooked in them. Over time they start taking a toll on your body functions and compromise the immune system. This causes health problems ranging from minor illnesses to chronic diseases.
2. The health of your food is determined by how nutritious it is
You may choose your ingredients wisely but your cookware can destroy most of the essential nutrients in them by cooking it with harsh heat. The food’s delicate nutrients need to be cooked with gentle heat so the nutritional value of your food stays intact.
3. The health of your food is determined by how much steam stays inside
Releasing steam through vents may seem like a common occurrence if you are using conventional metal or ceramic pots but very few people know steam is essentially water-soluble nutrients. The body needs these on a daily basis as they can’t be stored like fat-soluble nutrients. But the steam pressure created in conventional pots is high. The pot might explode if the steam is not released constantly.
4. Pure Clay Cookware: A Healthy Viable Alternative
Switching to pure clay cookware can greatly improve the health of your food. Pure clay is an all-natural 100% non-toxic material that is tested negative for all kinds of toxins found in most conventional cookware. It doesn’t contaminate food and cooks with far infrared heat that is gentle on delicate nutrients.
They also naturally condense steam – steam is condensed on the inner surface of the lid (as it stays cooler than the pot during cooking) and keeps falling back into the food so water-soluble nutrients are preserved right inside the pot.
The food cooked in pure clay is extremely healthy and nutritious when compared to the same food cooked in metals or ceramics. When you eat such food regularly, your body is nourished with essential nutrients on a regular basis. Also the toxins, which are already accumulated, are cleansed out by the body naturally… When it is not bombarded with more toxins.
