As society moves toward a healthier environment and lifestyle, consumers are now looking for ways to improve the quality of their food. When we think about health food, we often overlook the items that we use to cook, bake, prepare and season our food.
Craftsman from Pomaire, Chile have been making unglazed clay cookware since the 19th century. These cookware products are healthier because little or no oil is needed as the food steams in natural juices. Clay pots also hold the nutrients whereas foods that are boiled often lose nutrients during the cooking process. Foods cooked in clay dishes retain more flavor than traditional cookware. Clay pots are also free of all chemicals that include lead and aluminum. They are safe to use in the oven with a temperature of up to 450F, in the microwave, and on the stovetop
Being porous, the water is released during cooking allowing the food to remain moist. During the cooking process natural juices are created. As the food cooks, the juices increase the steam which creates a moist cooking state. The clay distributes and retains the heat. The result is juicy and flavorful food. Clay is healthy because it seals in the nutrients so you do not have to add fats. As well, salts and seasonings are able to penetrate deeper in the food.
Cooking in unglazed clay is an ancient tradition with modern day health benefits. Clay cookware is still the most popular cooking choice in many parts of the world. Whether you steam-cooked vegetables, cook meats and fish, make soups, and delicious baked goods, this ancient method of cooking is a modern and healthy way of cooking. Today’s clay cookware and bakeware are decoratively created to go straight from the oven to the dining table.
