There are four ways to cause nutrient loss:
. These ways cause nutrient loss:
vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber, which are very important for our health. In order to make the vegetables taste more delicious, we will change the pattern of cooking vegetables, but we need to pay attention to that if the cooking method is improper, it will cause a lot of loss of nutrients.
1. Pour the soup for cooking
. Generally, the volume of vegetables will become smaller after they are cooked. Compared with raw food, people can eat more vegetables. But vitamin C has poor heat resistance, once heated, it is easy to lose. Therefore, it is better not to discard the soup after cooking vegetables, and make rational use or intake of the soup containing vitamin C, so as not to lose vitamin C.
2. Soak vegetables in cold water for a long time
. Generally, when vegetables are used to make salads, in order to maintain the refreshing flavor, they will soak vegetables in cold water temporarily after cutting. However, long-term soaking will lead to the loss of nutrients, and water-soluble vitamins will slowly drain into the soaking water. Therefore, it is very wrong to soak vegetables in water for a long time.
3, carrot and other vegetables together with juice
. Generally, when making vegetable juice, we will consider mixing as many kinds of vegetables as possible to achieve a variety of nutrients intake. However, if carrot and other vegetables together with juice, it is not good. Carrots contain vitamin c oxidase, which will destroy the vitamin C contained in other vegetables. Therefore, carrots should not be used with juice.
4, using Blender and food processor to make fruit and vegetable juice
children who don’t like to eat vegetables and fruits usually have no resistance to fruit and vegetable juice, and mothers often hope to use fruit and vegetable juice to supplement their children’s nutrition. However, if you use a food blender or processor to break the fruits and vegetables, it is easy to cause the loss of vitamin C in the fruits and vegetables. This is because in the process of vegetables and fruits being stirred and broken, vitamin C is exposed to a large amount of air and then oxidized, resulting in loss. Therefore, to make raw vegetable juice, it is best to use a manual juicer to reduce the possibility of oxidation.
