Gut Microbiome: Raw versus Cooked

"Scientists analyzed the effect of cooking on the microbiomes of mice by feeding diets of raw meat, cooked meat, fresh sweet potatoes, or cooked sweet potatoes to groups of animals — selected because prior data demonstrated that cooking alters the nutrients and other bioactive mixes in both meat and tubers.

Scientists were surprised to know that raw versus cooked meat had no detectable impact on the animals’ gut microbes. Interestingly, raw and cooked sweet potatoes altogether changed the composition of the animals’ microbiomes, just as microbes’ patterns of gene activity and the biologically critical metabolic items they delivered.

The specialists affirmed their findings are utilizing an increasingly different array of vegetables, performing what Turnbaugh called a “mad scientists experiment” – sustaining the mice an assortment of raw and cooked sweet potato, white potato, corn, peas, carrots, and beets.

The group attributed the microbial changes they saw to two key factors: cooked food allows the host to soak up more calories in the small intestine, leaving less for hungry microbes further down the gut; on the other hand, many raw foods contain potent antimicrobial compounds that appear to damage certain bacteria directly."

This is direct evidence against the consumption of cooked foods due to how crucial the microbiome is. Is this the beginning of science proving raw is law?

Cooking shapes the structure and function of the gut microbiome

Abstract
Diet is a critical determinant of variation in gut microbial structure and function, outweighing even host genetics1,2,3. Numerous microbiome studies have compared diets with divergent ingredients1,2,3,4,5, but the everyday practice of cooking remains understudied.

Wow, awesome study and it just was published too. We all knew science would catch up to the benefits of a raw food diet one day. Glad to see this process coming to fruition.
