Does heating juice affect nutrients?

Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by NicoleL on 6 years ago I'd love to make a tomato-based juice then heat it in order to have a "soup" for dinner on my juice fast but I want to make sure that's OK before I do it. Thanks!

    Hi NicoleL, You can do this. Heating does destroy some nutrients and enzymes although when you are including plenty of juice throughout the day and you wish to have something warm then this is perfectly fine to do. On a positive note heating tomato has been shown to increase the anti-oxidant potential of lycopene. Here are some more suggestions for having a warm soup on your juice only reboot http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/warm-up-with-juice-pulp-veggie-broth-recipe-of-the-week/ http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/thai-infused-vegetable-broths-recipe-of-the-week/ Let us know if you have any more questions!
