Delicious flavors, fluffy grains, and crispy colorful vegetables – how much more could you want in a stir fry? You can get all these in most of your dishes following one way or another but how healthy your dish is, makes all the difference.
When it comes to stir-frying in a healthy way, the first thing that comes to mind is using healthy oils and in less quantity. And for that, you need a non-stick cookware because it requires less greasing to cook without food sticking to the base. But have you thought about cooking non-toxic and retaining nutrients? Don’t blame yourself if you haven’t because the marketing campaigns by metal cookware brands make sure you focus only on the appearance and non-stick features. And this is all they can offer. Why? Keep reading to find out.
Why can’t metal cookware cook non-toxic and nutritious food?
Metals are innately reactive and leach into food while cooking. These toxins contaminate food by binding to the nutrients and modifying their health value. These toxic compounds are detrimental to the body organs and cause serious health problems in the long run.
Yes, metal cookware is made non-stick using enamels or coatings. But these contain unhealthy elements like carcinogens and neurotoxins. This means they solve a little issue by creating another more serious issue.
Moreover, metal cookware radiates harsh near infrared heat that destroys nutrients. And the oils used for greasing break down into unhealthy trans-fat when subjected to direct heat. All these issues call for an alternative – a cookware not made from metals or similar unhealthy material like chemical laden ceramics. Let’s find out what that is.
