Pressure cooker / Slow cooker
Does anyone have any information about these methods of cooking?
I just bought an instantpot, and am going to use it for both slow cooking and pressure cooking.
Dave mentioned that slow cooking has a danger of breaking down collagen and releasing glutamate. Collagen is fine since we supplement it anyways, glutamate, on the other hand, is a little bit concerning. I figured it's not a big issue if we won't be eating slow cooked meat every single day. Or do you have information that shows clearly that I shouldn't be slow cooking my meat?
I haven't read anything by him about pressure cooking. Technically, it would not have the same issues as the slow cooker, because the cooking times are very low, but it may have the other issue of destroying nutrients, denaturing proteins because of the higher temperatures and pressure. So, is this something to be concerned about?
