Pure-clay is known to be the healthiest cooking material out there. Unlike popular metal/ceramic pots, it is 100% non-toxic in its natural form. It not only makes cooking healthier but is also good for the environment. A simple baking soda test that can be performed at home is a testament to this fact.
The origin of this practice of using clay as cookware material can be observed in the distant past. Even before recorded history, people used to make cooking utensils from pure clay. Some might say that metals were not used at that time because they were not yet discovered. But that’s a myth as even when metals were used to make various tools and buildings, they were not used in cookware. Metal cookware is only the curse of modern society where making money is more important than health.
Today, the cooking pots popular in market are made of metal or ceramic. Both these materials are toxic for food. At cooking temperature, metals break into ions and react with food which is a biochemical entity, as heat acts as a catalyst. These metals then accumulate in the body organs, tissues, and blood. If this goes on for a long time, many health problems arise ranging from minor illnesses to dangerous diseases.
Still, there is a general lack of awareness about the bad effects of metal/ceramic cookware on health which is probably the reason they are commonly used.
