Can crock pots cook 100% non-toxic and nutritious soups?
Conventional crock pots have one thing in common – an insert made from metals or their alloys. Ever noticed what happens to a metal object when left for a while? It starts to rust and that is evidence of reactivity of metals. All metals are innately reactive. When subjected to oxygen, water, halogens, and bases (from food), they react with food during cooking to form toxic compounds. These compounds not only contaminate the food cooking in the crock pot, but also accumulate in the body to cause detrimental changes to organs and their functioning over time.
But this is not all. These metal pots radiate harsh near infrared heat that destroys nutrients. This means your slow cooked food will lack essential nutrients. And because the delicate nutrients like flavonoids are lost, the natural flavor and color of your ingredients is gone. This calls for use of additional seasonings that are not so healthy.
All these issues call for an alternative slow cooker that can cook without leaching and destroying nutrients. Keep reading to learn more about it.
