Microwave Your Food

With the invention of the microwave in this world, scientists and researchers are doing work on its effect on the food we eat. Up till now, there have been various proposals and theories regarding this effect. Before going into any deep theories, it is, of course, necessary to understand that microwave does have an effect on your food.

The microwave does not increase the nutritional value of your food. For example, if you have placed an egg dish to get hot in your microwave, after coming out, the protein content of the egg would not get increased. However, the microwave does change water content of your food but very slightly. Serving the purpose of making your food warmer, it makes your food lose a slight amount of water. Hence, any change of content, which is occurring in your microwaved food, is its water ratio.

Coming to the electromagnetic waves of the microwave, it is no denying that they are harmful. Waves coming from microwave are similar to the signal waves coming from mobile phones but waves of the microwave are more intensified than the waves of mobile phones. Due to these strong electromagnetic waves, water molecules in the food polarize through friction.

It gives you microwave using tip that the more water your food contains, the easier it is to get it hot in a microwave. Dried foods will take longer time to get hot. This theory perfectly works for sharp metals being placed in the microwave, be it your cooking utensil or bowl.
