Veggie Wash: Does Washing Vegetables Remove Nutrients?

Veggie Wash: Does Washing Vegetables Remove Nutrients?

Being a new mother is as tiring as it is rewarding. You are new to everything and have endless questions about one thing or the other. After all, you want to provide only the best for your child. It was all fine and dandy when all your baby needed was breast milk or formula. But now that they are older, you need to start preparing healthy and nutritious food.

Unless you go for completely organic produce - which is comparatively expensive, any veggies or fruits you purchase will be covered in a thin layer of pesticides and insect repellents. The harmful effects of pesticides in kids might lead to an increased risk of autism. Some chemical fertilizers can result in pesticide poisoning in expecting mothers are also linked to a higher rate of fertility issues. Apart from herbicides and pesticides, the food may also come in contact with particles of animal faeces - and you don't want your child to eat that!

The best way to wash fruits and vegetables to get rid of toxic contaminants is to rub them under running water. Research suggests that a good hand scrub with water for at least thirty seconds can remove chemical fertilizers from raw veggies and fruits. But how can you be sure that you are not sloughing off all the nutrients from the vegetables?

Avoid washing fruits and veggies after they have been cut - this can lead to loss of vitamins and minerals. Vegetables like carrots, beets, potatoes, turnips and fruits like apples, pears and kiwis have essential nutrients in their skin. Peeling these fruits and veggies would result in the loss of healthy vitamins. In this case, a thorough scrubbing will suffice in ensuring food safety as well as nutrient retention. Another general practice involves washing the produce in room temperature water, as hot or cold water can also lead to significant nutrient loss.

But rinsing with water alone may not be enough to wash off certain viruses;  you need to go a step ahead and ensure the safety of your children with a natural and toxin-free fruit and vegetable wash.
