Live Foods, Raw Foods – What’s the Difference?
Question: Many times you will hear the word live foods or living foods used to describe a raw food diet. Is there a difference?
Answer: For many, the words are used interchangeably. For those ‘in the know’, there is an important difference. Raw foods consist of foods in their natural, unheated state.
Live foods can even contain greater amounts of vital nutrients and enzyme activity created through soaking, sprouting, blending and culturing. Culturing allows us to create specialty dishes and drinks such as sauerkraut, plant cheeses, yogurts and kombucha.
