In what foods can I find enzymes ?
Al



Answer:

Dear Al,

Enzymes are complex proteins that cause a specific chemical change in other substances, without being changed themselves.

Raw foods are rich in enzymes.

Enzymes are needed for the digestive system to work. They are necessary to break down food particles so they can be utilized for energy.

The human body makes approximately 22 different digestive enzymes which are capable of digesting carbohydrates, protein and fats.

Raw vegetables and raw fruit are rich sources of enzymes.

While all raw foods contain enzymes, the most powerful enzyme-rich food is sprouted seeds, grains, and legumes.

Broccoli sprouts are the best source of enzymes among sprouted seeds.

Fruits rich in enzymes are pineapple , which is a source of bromelain and papaya fruit, which is a source of papain.

The enzyme, catechol oxidase, is easily isolated from bananas.

Sprouts are rich with vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes.
Sprouts are one of the most complete and nutritional of all foods that exist.
