If you are a healthy cook and find yourself worrying if the cookware you are using is truly safe, then you are not alone. While our ancestors were satisfied with the health benefits of cooking in clay, the modern age cookware manufacturers used all kinds of metals, alloys and ceramics for making cookware. To make matters worse, they further used chemical additives, enamels and glazes to make them non-stick, colorful, shiny and beautiful. While the latter may have affected the appearance of the cookware, they diminish its health value greatly:
Your cookware is the safest when raw material is 100% non-toxic
To make the safest cookware, the raw material must be 100% non-toxic and inert. This is because food which is a bio-chemical entity undergoes chemical reactions during the cooking process and if the cookware material is reactive, it will interfere and modify these reactions with the heat acting as a catalyst to these reactions. As a result, food gets contaminated and over time, the accumulation of these toxins in trace amounts could be the basis of illness and compromise the immune system.
Why metals don’t make the safest cookware?
All metals are reactive, and no matter what you mix them with, they will leach reactively and render food toxic. Moreover, they radiate harsh near infrared heat that destroys nutrients and reduces the nutritional value of food.
Your cookware is the safest when it’s made from 100% tested pure and primary clay:
Unglazed primary clay or pure clay is an all-natural material that is 100% free from toxins – lab tests have proved this fact. Also, unlike conventional materials, pure clay radiates gentle far infrared heat that keeps nutrients intact while cooking. And when the pot and lid are ergonomically designed (like with Miriam’s earthen cookware), they can naturally condense steam which is essentially water-soluble nutrients.
MEC – the home to pure clay cookware
Miriam’s Earthen Cookware – a pioneering all-American company has been making pure clay pots and pans for more than a decade now. Their raw material is tested in a state lab for toxicity and the test results are published on their website. Over the years, they have perfected their design to yield many health features to their cookware, like naturally steam condensing, multi-cooking and the flexibility to use on different heat sources.
