Healthy Cookware 101: Do We Know Everything About Cookware? think again

What is it that we don’t know about kitchen utensils, right? They are pots and pans that we use every day… That’s where we fail. Sometimes the most important things are right in front of us and we still choose to ignore their effect on our lives – kitchen utensils are one of those things. Choosing the right cookware is just as important to cooking healthy food as choosing the right ingredients. The current scenario in the market makes it difficult to make the right decision as manufacturers are more focused on profit than ever and sell whatever it is that will earn them maximum profit.

You may be choosing the right ingredients that are packed with nutrients and healthy, but by choosing the wrong cookware, you are not only depleting those nutrients but also making your food toxic. Research shows that all metals are reactive (this is their innate property) and foods contain nutrients in the form of oxygen, hydrogen halogens, acids, and bases. They are reactive to metal ions that conventional metal/ceramic cookware leach out during cooking. Don’t believe me, do a simple alkaline baking soda test at home, this is an eye opener:

Alkaline Baking Soda Test to Check Cookware Toxicity

  1. Boil 2-3 cups of water in any pot, when it starts to boil add 2 teaspoons of baking soda, boil for 5 more minutes. Turn off the stove.

  2. Wait until cool enough to taste, and then taste the water (take a sip). If you taste metals, that’s what you’re eating! If the water tastes like rubber/paint, it’s the chemicals in the polish/enamel.

As a control, mix 2 teaspoons of baking soda in 1 glass of water and take a sip; you will only notice the taste of the baking soda. Truly non-toxic cookware would not leach anything into the food.

If your cookware doesn’t pass this test, it simply means it’s leaking toxins into your food. These toxins are ingested with food and accumulate in tissues and organs over time, where they become the basis for serious health problems. Also, the immune system that is responsible for fighting disease is compromised. In short, all the important functions of the body are severely affected, resulting in anything from minor illnesses to serious health problems that seem to come out of nowhere.

If you’re concerned about the health of your family, it’s about time you started looking for truly healthy cookware that won’t interfere with the health of your food while cooking.

I found out about this 100% safe and healthy material that is naturally non-reactive and non-toxic: pure clay. When I did the baking soda test in a pure clay pot, I experienced the difference for myself.

They are truly natural even after going through the manufacturing process.
