THE TRUTH ABOUT MICROWAVE OVENS: 5 FACTS THAT MIGHT SURPRISE YOU

 

3. Microwaving Reduces Formation of Harmful Compounds

Bacon

One advantage of microwaving is that the food doesn’t heat up nearly as much as it does with other cooking methods, like frying.

Usually, the temperature doesn’t go much above 100°C/212°F, which is the boiling point of water.

However, fatty foods like bacon can become hotter than that.

Bacon is one food that is believed to form harmful compounds when cooked. These compounds are called nitrosamines, and are formed when nitrites in foods are heated excessively.

According to one study, heating bacon in the microwave caused the least nitrosamine formation of all cooking methods tested (7).

Another study showed that microwaving chicken caused much less heterocyclic amines (another harmful compound) to form, compared to frying (8).

Bottom Line: Microwaving is a good way to minimize the formation of harmful compounds that can form when cooking at a high heat.

 

End of Part 3

Tupperware has several product lines that are used in the microwave ovens and they are all BPA Free. I sell the CrystalWave line for storing and reheating your left overs, the Vent N Serve I take a step further and use them to cook in at my Tupperware Demo Parties. The Microwave Rice Cooker, Pasta Maker and the Breakfast Maker are all super helpful items. My personal favorites are the Stack Cooker and the SmartSteamer. Our newest product is the Microwave Pressure Cooker fast becoming a big favorite with everyone.
