INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Just like Kale, The Raw food movement is not a fad; it’s here to stay. Science supports raw food contains infinitely more nutrition than cooked. Plus, valuable digestive enzymes are destroyed by heat over 118 degrees. Most super-nourishing raw food, like our bodies, is very perishable. http://www.digestivesplus.com/
When raw foods, like tomatoes, are exposed to temperatures above 118 degrees, they start to rapidly break down, just as our bodies would if we had a high fever. Once enzymes are exposed to heat, they are no longer able to provide the digestive assistance for which they were designed. Without digestive enzymes, you wouldn't be able to extract energy or building blocks for molecules your cells make from your food. Smell what I’m cookin’?
