Nutritionists Explained Why You Should Stop Boiling Spinach
Spinach is loaded with vitamins and minerals and can be an excellent addition to your diet. Of course only in case if you cook it right.
Registered dietitian Samara Abbot explains: “Boiling vegetables can cause a loss in water-soluble vitamins. So you won’t get as much vitamin C and folate as you would if you'd just eaten a raw spinach salad. Raw spinach is not considered to be the best calcium source because it also contains oxalic acid, which prevents calcium absorption.”
However, there are some ways of cooking spinach that will allow you to get both vitamin C and calcium. Nutritionists suggest steam or microwave spinach in order to get more nutritional value in every gram of the vegetable. Spinach cooked like this can be added to smoothies, soups or omelets.
