Can Cooking Remove Nutrients?


Can cooking destroy healthy nutrients? Water soluble nutrients like Vitamin C are lost when vegetables are cooked. But you may ideally have have tomatoes, carrots, turnips and pumpkins cooked. The reason for this is the beta-carotene and lycopene anti-oxidants found in these vegetables can be absorbed by our body better when they are cooked. In other words, some vegetables are better cooked while some can be best eaten raw.
