Toxins Hidden in Cooked Foods
Cooking tends to destroy a lot of the nutritive value of the food we eat. However, another aspect, and one which less people are aware of, is the toxins (including carcinogens) that exist when food is heated past a certain temperature over time.
Some of the toxic substances are as follows:
- Acrylamide – a carcinogen found in cigarettes, coffee, potato, bread products, baked/fried food
- Nitrates, Nitrites, HCAs and PAHs
- Advanced Glycation End product (AGEs)
- Oxidized Unsaturated Oils
