Due to new food guidelines there are certain foods you should just never eat raw. Some have been known forever, like beans, since they can contain poisons in their husks that are only shed during the soaking or cooking process. Other new ones are raw cookie dough. While raw eggs are at a chance for salmonella, flour is the newest culprit. Uncooked flour has been shown to contain E. coli, and this dough, which may seem like a treat during baking, is a potential hazard. Other things include mushrooms, pork and even raw olives.
- E. coli bacteria can be found in flour of uncooked cookie dough
- Raw potatoes may contain solanine, a very toxic substance. Always cook potatoes thoroughly, never eat potatoes cooked al dente.
- Raw asparagus is hard to digest and less healthy than cooked asparagus.Cooking asparagus releases more cancer-fighting antioxidants and increases absorption of vitamins A, B, C, E and K.
“Yet, there’s still some foods that are unsafe if eaten raw and others that are simply more nutritious when cooked.”
