Raw food diet. It sounds simple. It is simple. It is things that are not cooked. The basic rule of thumb with raw food is you don’t want to heat anything above 118 degrees. Some people say 115 degrees. And what that means is with the raw food, if it goes above 118, you start to kill the enzymes that are naturally in the food. That’s one of the big benefits of raw food is the natural enzymes which help you absorb your food to help break it down to digest it. And if you go above those temperatures, you kill off those enzymes. Basically anything that’s packaged food, you’re probably, it’s already cooked in the processing.

So we’re talking about getting fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts. Preparing them in a way that we don’t heat them over 118. Most preparation for raw food is very basic and doesn’t require any heat, and therefore it’s still raw. Some people like to dehydrate their food and you get more intense flavors that way and can simulate even some cooked food. And so you can dehydrate foods at, say, 115 degrees, get them warm as well. A lot of people miss that warm flavor. So you can get that by dehydrating as well. So the basics is, you just are not going to heat your food above 118 degrees and it’s going to be raw.

    By the way most store fruits are dehydrated in hot ovens, above 120 F or so.

  7. rawdream says:

    Any marinaded and salted food (like cucambers or fish or nuts) are not considered raw as well. Besides, enzymes are not active in dehydrated nuts or dates etc, and to activate them you need to soak them in water.
