The need for vitamins in today’s society is more of urgent than ever. There are less than 13 nutrients in the soil that our foods grow in. This creates deficient vitamin supply in the food before it is harvested then when processed more vitamins are lost. This creates a shortage in our bodies of many if not all of the vitamins needed for a healthy body and mind. From watching the video and the in class lecture, Team 2 has learned that most of our foods processed although advertised as fresh have lost up to 40% of all their vitamins. The food is usually always at least a week old and this is an additional loss of approximately 10%. When you cook the food, the heat process of cooking destroys the enzymes that live in raw food and this further diminishes the health benefits of so called fresh food.
