Q: What are the benefits of steaming food?
A: Scientific research has proven that the higher the temperature used in cooking, the food cooked will be more difficult for the human body to digest, absorb and metabolise. Therefore, cooking methods using low temperatures, such as steaming, cooking and stewing, are most beneficial to our health. Steaming could most possibly retain the original nutrition of the food. During the course of steaming, the temperature used is also relatively mild (maintained at about 100°C). During the steaming process, if the food contains high amount of fat (eg. meats), the excess fat with be released while the food is being heated by the steam, thus reducing the oiliness of the food.
