What is Raw Food and Why Should We Eat It?

Raw Food seems to be frequently spoken of amongst the health community but not all of us may understand exactly what it means or what a raw food diet entails. Raw foods are considered “live” food and includes fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, roots and seeds.

A raw food diet consists of organic, uncooked foods found in the earth as you would expect, however, these foods can then also be blended, chopped, juiced, pureed, frozen, dehydrated as well as cooked, though not above 37.5 degrees Celsius (99.5 degrees Fahrenheit).This is the body’s temperature, and the optimum temperature for enzyme function. Above this temperature the enzyme structure begins to break down and are no longer effective (1).

Some of the benefits of eating raw food include:

  • – More nutrients than the average diet
  • – The protection of enzymes required for many functions in our bodies (2)
  • – Limited added chemicals to our food
  • – Affordable and convenient
  • – Increased number of antioxidants consumed (3)
  • – Reduced risk of a number of diseases (4, 5, 6)
  • – Increased Energy
  • – Natural detoxing
  • – Promotion of alkalinity (7)
  • – Taste

Overall, eating a raw food diet aids our bodies to function as best they can by fuelling them with the best and most natural foods.
