Why Steamed Food Is The Healthiest
Steam cooking is an ancient method of cooking that has been used in Chinese culture for centuries. Modern health-conscious individuals have embraced steamed food as a smart meal preparation method. It can increase the number of retained nutrients, reduce fat, and increase flavor. With a high-quality food steamer, you can enjoy a wide variety of prepared meals for endless health benefits.
You’ll find it easy to start preparing your own steamed meals with these cooking tips for a variety of meats and vegetables.
Steamed Food Retains Natural Juices
Food steamers use water vapor for cooking food. The heat from the steam gently surrounds the food, heating and cooking it. The added moisture helps the food you are cooking retain its moisture. This results in food that is packed with health benefits and is enjoyable to eat.
The retention of natural juices and moisture makes the food easier to chew. The first step in the digestive process is chewing. This breaks down the food in preparation for your stomach to continue the process. Steamed food breaks down better, so you’ll enjoy less bloating and gas.
Dehydration is a common issue that people suffer from. You can try to drink more water throughout the day, but this gets boring and can be difficult. Consuming food that has more moisture helps to keep you hydrated. This reduces the amount of water you need to drink to supplement your diet.
Get More Natural Vitamins With Food Steamers
Some vitamins and minerals are water-soluble. If you choose to boil your food, you drastically reduce the number of water-soluble vitamins by 50-60%. Steaming is a much less invasive process, so you benefit from retained nutrients and expertly cooked meals.
Additionally, the longer the food is exposed to heat, the more nutrients that get lost. Food steamers can quickly prepare food to reduce the heat exposure time. The Buydeem All-in-One Intelligent Steamer makes it easy to prepare meals with several pre-set modes and a quick 60-second heat-up time.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, some raw vegetables are difficult for your body to break down. Because of this, you won’t get their full nutritional benefit from them when you eat them raw. Steaming these vegetables can help your body process beta-carotene and lycopene better. For example, tomatoes lose vitamin C when they are cooked, but their lycopene content doubles.
Steam Cooking Seals In More Seasoning Flavor
The gentle heat from steam cooking helps your seasoning to retain its full flavor. Too harsh of heat can singe and burn the delicate leaves used for seasoning. This results in less flavorful or unpleasantly flavored food.
A food steamer’s gentle heat will protect the delicate seasoning used so that it can inject a richer and more pure flavor into your food. You can also season the water. This surrounds your food in flavorful steam that creates even flavor throughout the food.
The Buydeem All-in-One Intelligent Steamer takes this one step further by preventing cross-contamination of flavor. Opting for the additional tier lets you prepare two separate foods simultaneously. This makes it fast and easy to prepare a complete meal in one space-saving unit.
You Use Less Fattening Seasons
Unlike other cooking methods, you don’t need oil or fat. You don’t need fats to prevent the food from sticking to the pan. The added moisture of the steam keeps everything moist and tender in the steaming pan. This prevents your food from sticking to the pan while it cooks.
You also don’t need the additional fats to make the food more palatable. Because the food retains more water, you don’t need to add fat. The added fat typically makes the food moist to make up for the loss of water during other cooking methods. This reduces the calories added to the dish during the cooking process.
Steaming Retains Food’s Health Benefits
Cancer is a scary prospect, but you can reduce your risk with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Food steamers help you with this by helping you prepare meals with plenty of health benefits. Cruciferous vegetables are delicious and perfect for steaming. They also are rich in cancer-fighting compounds. They can help your body inhibit the growth of tumors and protect your cells from damage. Steaming your cauliflower, broccoli, bok choy, and cabbage is the key to experiencing these benefits. Other cooking methods heat your food to a high heat, which causes the vegetables to leach 20-60% of these beneficial compounds.
Steam Cooking Is Easy
One of the biggest hurdles for people is the meal preparation process. It’s hard for people to eat healthy when it’s easier to order food or eat out. Food steamers eliminate this excuse by making the meal preparation process simple. You’ll find countless cooking tips online.

This prevents damage to the steamer or a risk of fire.
Food Steamers Cook A Variety Of Foods
When you talk about eating healthy, people immediately picture a plain chicken breast and broccoli. This is ok every once in a while, but it will get boring quickly. When your healthy food options are boring or highly repetitive, you’re more likely to stray to unhealthy options.
The Buydeem All-in-One Intelligent Steamer can help you prepare a wide variety of steamed food. You can easily prepare a variety of meats, vegetables, fruits, yogurt, and desserts. This lets you prepare everything from buns to soups, complete protein, and produce meals.
An additional nice feature is the gentle warming ability. This lets you defrost and reheat food quickly and easily. Doing this ensures your food stays moist, flavorful, and healthy. That way, you’re more likely to eat your leftovers and stick with your healthy diet when time is limited.
Steaming Adds Flavor To A Raw Food Diet
The raw food diet calls for its followers to eat mostly or completely raw and unprocessed foods. This technically means that the food has not been heated over 104–118 degrees Fahrenheit. Instead, meals consist of alternative meal preparation methods, such as blending, soaking, sprouting, juicing, and dehydrating.
As you can see, this diet can be extremely limiting in food and meal choices. Thankfully, food steamers can breathe life and nutrition into your raw food diet. With a high-quality food steamer, you can precisely set the cooking temperature. This lets you prepare your food while staying below the maximum temperature limit outlined by your raw food diet. Your meal possibilities open up, it becomes significantly easier to follow a raw food diet, and you get a better variety of health benefits.
