Phosphorus is an essential mineral required for cells to function normally. It is important for bone growth and around 85% of your body's phosphorus is found in bone. Phosphorus is also important to help our body produce energy. Phosphorus is stable in foods. There is no loss with freezing, drying or heating. Loses through leaching into cooking water do occur (up to 35%).
Cut your veg into large pieces as you’re less likely to sever cell walls or lose nutrients to heat, light or cooking water.
