How to handle fat-soluble nutrients correctly
Normally there is hardly any fat in juices. Although this is good for the figure, it means that certain nutrients may not be utilised to the full by your body.
Namely, those that are fat soluble. The negligible amounts of fat in the juice itself are not sufficient to channel fat-soluble vitamins and other fat-soluble substances out of the food and into the body
There is a very easy way to remedy this: just keep a small amount of raw almond puree in raw food quality, coconut puree in raw food quality or cold-pressed vegetable oil in raw food quality to hand and whisk this into the juice.
Half a teaspoonful or less is enough. Linseed oil, rapeseed oil or olive oil, for example, are ideal for this purpose.
Alternatively chew a macadamia nut in raw food quality, almonds in raw food quality or cocoa beans in raw food quality in order to get the valuable vegetable fat intake you need.
Raw food tip:
Vitamins A, D, E and K in raw food quality are fat-soluble vitamins. In other words, they need fat if they are to be absorbed by our bodies.
Eat a raw ingredient that is rich in fat with your juice, ingredients such as a type of nut or a few drops of high-quality vegetable oil! This will ensure that your body gets the benefit of valuable fat-soluble nutrients.
