Cayce suggested that when vegetables are cooked, it's best that they are cooked in Patapar Paper to help retain their nutrients. Patapar Paper is reusable, and frequently used in gourmet restaurants. 24"x24", 6 sheets.
Cooking with Patapar Paper can help you to find a new source of natural vitamins - right in your kitchen. Edgar Cayce found food sources of nutrients far superior to supplementation. He advised cooking with vegetable parchment as a way of preserving these food values.
Because of the oxidation which occurs when foods come in contact with the air, conventional cooking destroys some 50% of a vegetable's vitamin content and most of the vitamin C which is essential to vitamin balance. Food salts (minerals in organic structure), which are building blocks for vitamins in the body are also adversely affected.
Not only does cooking foods in parchment prevent oxidation by excluding air from the cooking process, but it also preserves their natural flavors, making you a gourmet cook. The constant temperature of boiling water and the vacuum-like conditions within the bundle yield a consistent and uniform product every time. Starch and cellulose are " predigested," allowing nutrients to be released. Vegetables are cooked in their own juices, as Cayce advised, to keep these valuable nutrients from escaping.
