Why Pure Clay Is a Blessing for Healthy Cooking

If you are concerned about the health of your family and know that cooking healthy food is the key to it, then I can assure you that you are already enlightened than half of the people out there. At a time when people are so busy with their lives that they hardly have time to eat, it’s difficult for them to pay attention to how their meals are cooked. But the way new health problems are popping up every other day, along with the ones that are already common, it is high time we start paying attention to healthy cooking.

‘It’s not just food that is healthy, it’s also the way it has been cooked that makes it healthy!’

You are already using healthy and nutrition-rich ingredients to cook food – great job, but are you paying attention to cookware you are using? Conventional cookware is made from metals or ceramics – both found to be leaching toxins in food while cooking according to studies. Metals like aluminum, iron, nickel, magnesium, molybdenum, lead — all subject to react with water, nutrients, vitamins & minerals, proteins and carbs that are in the form of halogens, acids and bases.

Cooking is a chemically transformational process. Metals leach ions at cooking temperature, which then react with food (a biochemical entity) while heat acts as a catalyst. These metal ions then assimilate with food and accumulate in tissues, organs, and blood over time. If this goes on for a long time, several health problems may arise ranging from minor illnesses and allergies to chronic diseases.

Similarly, conventional ceramic cookware made from ceramic clay, porcelain, stoneware and the glazes and enamels used for coating is a composition of different chemicals, oxides, and metals. The percentage of natural clay (which is usually only secondary clay) is anywhere from 0 to 9% only. Thus, like metal cookware, they also leach toxins into food while cooking.

So, is there a cookware that is actually healthy? Luckily, yes! The pots made from pure clay are perfect for healthy cooking. This material is pure and all-natural primary clay (or pure-clay). No chemicals or additives used in the making, finishing or firing process ensure they stay healthy for cooking. This process of making pure clay pots is the least choice for most commercial cookware makers because of the extensive time and effort required. And that’s exactly what makes these pure clay pots a blessing for healthy cooking.

The cookware made from pure clay is healthy in more than ways. Besides being 100% inert and non-toxic, clay cookware is also known for its unique far infrared heat. This uniformly distributed heat is food friendly as it doesn’t damage delicate nutrients like conventional cookware (metal and ceramics). Also, the water-soluble nutrients don’t just evaporate, they are locked inside the ergonomically designed pot and condense right there with food as soon as cooking is complete. Also, these pots retain heat for a long time and so, keep food warm. Aren’t they awesome?

Let’s switch to this healthiest clay cookware and experience healthy cooking. Stay blessed!
