Who likes to cook food that gives a metallic aftertaste? Not me. I choose my ingredients carefully and spend my hard-earned money on getting the right kinds of food to provide a balanced diet to my family. I certainly would not want to taste metal in my food. Neither should you!
While choosing a frequently used cookware like a Dutch Oven, one should choose a safe and non-toxic option so the food doesn’t taste like metals after cooking in it.
How Do These Metals Get Into Food?
Most conventional Dutch Ovens use metals or ceramics for raw material – which are pretty convenient to make and sell but are unfit for cooking. All metals are reactive – it’s their innate property. At cooking temperature, the metals react with the nutrients in food (a biochemical entity) and form toxic compounds. This not only reduces the nutritional value of food but also contaminate it.
Ceramics and glazes are full of chemicals that contain metal oxides – they leach metals just like metal cookware does.
How Does This Toxic Food Affect You?
When you eat this toxic food regularly, the metals start accumulating in the body tissues, organs and blood to form the foundation for weak immune system and sickness. Ever heard of someone getting sick while living a healthy lifestyle and eating healthy homemade food? – These toxins contribute to it. The body can, however, cleanse these toxins on its own but it fails when the intake of metals is regular.
While getting a Dutch Oven, choose the one that doesn’t leach.
Which Dutch Oven Doesn’t Leach Metals?
Pure clay is a natural material that is inert in its natural form. When used for making cookware without chemicals or glazes, it doesn’t leach like metals and keeps food’s nutrients intact. Pure clay is tested and certified no lead, no cadmium or metals, and you can test its purity by doing a simple test at home using some baking soda and water.
What Happens When You Switch To Pure Clay Dutch Oven?
First of all, the body starts cleansing out previously accumulated toxins and the tissues and organs start to heal. The immune system also keeps getting stronger with time and prevents common sickness and infections. As a result, you start getting healthier with increased stamina and better metabolism. This happens within months of using this healthy cookware and it is just the tip of the iceberg. Some have claimed to cure even diabetes by using pure clay cookware regularly.
Besides so many health benefits, the food cooks evenly and turns out delicious in a pure clay Dutch Oven. If this isn’t enough to switch to this safer and healthier alternative, I don’t know what is.
