What Makes Raw Food Healthy?

The premise behind eating raw is that the food is not heated more than 118°F, which is said to preserve enzymes and nutrients. When foods are cooked, nutrients are often destroyed in the process, and in many cases toxic cooking by-products, like cancer-causing acrylamide, are produced.

One of the greatest claims to fame of raw food is its enzyme content. Your body does produce some enzymes on its own, but it can also benefit from consuming them through your diet. It’s thought that a long-term diet of solely cooked foods puts a heavy burden on your digestive organs, especially your pancreas, which must produce all the enzymes needed to break down your food. By consuming raw, enzyme-rich foods, you help your body to “predigest” the food and supply some of the enzymes necessary for proper digestion, giving your body a break.

There’s also the issue of nutrient content. Generally speaking, foods that are raw (or only minimally heated) will have more of their nutrients intact, and offer greater nutritional value to your body. For instance, one study found that cooking kale resulted in a loss of about 89% of the vegetable’s vitamin C content and 56% of its polyphenols. The researchers noted:

The cooking process of kale resulted in a lowering of the antioxidant activity of its antioxidants, especially of vitamin C, polyphenols and to a lesser extent of ß-carotene. This confirms that vegetables should be eaten in raw form or undergo little processing before consumption, for example blanching.
