Though grilling and boiling is a tasty option to cook your meats, it’s not as healthy as cooking in water. A chemical process occurs when you cook proteins and sugar without water that produces AGE’s – or advanced glycated endproducts. It seems fitting to labeled them AGE since they cause DNA damage which is basically what happens when we age. Think of what happens to your food when you cook without water. They brown. AGE’s are concentrated in bread crust, browned meats, char-broiled fish, you get the point.
