Enzymes And Nonsense - Are there really digestive enzymes in raw food?
You hear about it constantly from raw foodists – cooking food destroys the digestive enzymes in them, forcing our body to expend energy to create its own.
But is there any truth to this idea, or just another raw food myth that makes the diet a laughingstock for those who study the body?
Sorry, I used the wrong link above. This is it: http://www.raw-food-health.net/Digestive-Enzymes.html
Yes, cooking does destroy the live enzymes found in food because of the heat that's involved.
This post has some info on heat destroying enzymes .... "Freeze drying preserves the life-giving quality of the minerals, living enzymes and delicate phytonutrients contained" ... it's about the 5th one down the page http://www.sweetwheat.com/faqs/
