Are you used to making your bone broth in a conventional s-l-o-www cooker? If yes, it’s time you switch to this new yet most time-honored method of cooking that is not just faster but a lot healthier too!
Conventional slow cooking pots not only take a really long time but are also known to leach Lead (a neurotoxin) and other metals. Not only is LEAD dangerous, any heavy metal like aluminum, cadmium, chromium, nickel (from metal and chemical based cookware) are all very dangerous when ingested through food as they get assimilated in the body, and these metal ions replace essential nutrients in cells and disrupt their normal function. So, it is imperative that there be NO lead or other heavy metals in your cooking pot.
This is why you must change the pot used for cooking to 100% NO Lead pure & natural clay. Why pure clay? Because it is the only material that has no metals, and is fully inert — in other words is non-reactive to the food cooked in it. While there are many clay cookware makers today, there is only one that makes 100% pure clay cookware without any additives or chemicals – guaranteed. They are Miriam’s Earthen Cookware (MEC). Let’s find out why it is faster and healthier to make bone broth in their pots:
100% No Lead – MEC has no metals
MEC makes pots and pans using 100% pure and natural unglazed primary clay that is free from metals and chemical contaminants. No more lead and other toxic elements leaching into your bone broth, it stays 100% non-toxic throughout the cooking process. MEC shares test results from a state lab to prove the purity of their raw material, isn’t it great?
Full of Nutrients & Flavors – MEC cooks with gentle heat
Long hours of cooking even at less than 220°F does a lot of harm to the nutrients. Scientific research done on amino acid lysine found in peanuts showed these results (World Health Foods):
Twenty percent of it had been found to get cooked out after an hour and a half exposure to 150°F heat. After two and one-half hours, 40% was lost. According to World’s Healthiest Foods, the majority of vitamins have less heat stability than this amino acid. So higher percentage losses of many vitamins when cooked at 200°F over six to eight hours of time can be expected.
This is exactly what happens to nutrients in your bone broth when cooked in metal pots. MEC, on the other hand, cooks with gentle far infrared heat that keeps nutrients intact. Thus, bone broth cooked in MEC is highly nutritious and retain the natural taste and flavors.
Takes less than half the time – MEC cooks faster:
The unique far infrared heat penetrates deep into food and cooks thoroughly and gently taking a lot less time. Using MEC, cooking a bone broth with chicken bones takes just 1.5 hours and with beef bones takes about 2 hours (unlike whole day in a crock machine).
“Bone broth amazed me.”, says Sally, an avid MEC cook and she adds this about cooking time of bone broth in MEC:
“After about three hours I tested my bones, and I could crush (break) them with my hands – a standard test of doneness. It takes much, much longer to get to this point when I use my stainless cookware or crock pot.”
After knowing all these benefits, who wouldn’t want to try cooking bone broth in MEC? Head over to MEC Store and order a pure clay pot today!
