How can one prevent the loss of nutrients from food?

Answer:
  • It is important that food is cooked right so that its nutrients are not lost.
  • Vegetables and fruits must be washed before cutting them which will prevent the loss of nutrients.
  • If vegetables have to be peeled, then the peels must be as thin as possible to prevent the loss of nutrients.
  • Repeated washing of rice and pulses may remove water-soluble vitamins.
  • Many nutrients and minerals are lost when excess water used for cooking is thrown away. Overcooking of food must also be avoided.
