We all have seen the news that states microwaves kill nutrition. But, the truth is that the microwave oven usually doesn’t destroy nutrients in the food. In fact preparation of food in the microwave enhances the nutritive value of food.

Protein quality remains fine with the microwave oven cooking. Though people say that amino acids are converted into the inactive form with microwave cooking.
