There are two main conflicting criteria that cannot be fulfilled for those buying the raw vegetable materials to prepare the soup :
The vitamins, folic acid and chlorophyll of white radish leaves will slowly drain away at temperature above 75?, longer the cooking time more serious the loss of nutrients.
Radish, carrot, burdock, mushrooms are root vegetables rick in mineral content, they need cooking at a temperature more than 95? to release nutrients. Minerals withstand higher temperature cooking, an the longer cooking time the more will be released.
Preparing the soup from raw vegetable materials needs to cook for 1~2 hours to release sufficient minerals, while the folic acid and chlorophyll cannot be retained. By using the convenient “5veggies Soup” packets the release of the minerals will be completed in a short time without losing any vitamins, folic acid or chlorophyll.
