Cooking Methods for a Healthier You!


The best cooking of all is the low heat, low water system. Boiling destroys as much as 70% of crucial food elements, vitamin C for example. Steaming looses about 50% of the food value, as does oven roasting. Low heat cooking in correctly designed cookware retains over 90% of the food value.

But beware

  • More than half the money you spend on food goes up in steam and down the sink!
  • Protect the investment you have in your health.
  • Use safe cooking methods
  • You can save up to 98% of the food value by controlling your cooking.
  • Use the most advanced cookware available.
  • Avoid aluminium cookware


Half to almost all of the minerals, vitamins, enzymes and essential fatty acids are removed by most of the cooking methods today.
