>>are dr. praegers frozen veggie burgers healthy or unhealthy.

There are several varieties of his veggie burgers so we would have to look at each one. I will evaluate one of them here for you, the regular California Burger

Per Burger
Calories 110
Calories From Fat 40
Sodium 250

This is 36% fat which is almost double what I would recommend. It is also over 2x the sodium I would recommend.

The Ingredients:
Carrot, Onion, Stringbeans, Soybeans, Zucchini, Oat Bran, Peas, Spinach, Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Broccoli, Textured Soy Flour, Corn, Oat Fiber, Red Pepper, Arrowroot, Corn Meal, Corn Starch, Garlic, Salt, Parsley, Black Pepper, All Natural Vegetable Gum

I am not a fan or the added oil, soy flour, arrowroot, corn meal, corn starch, all products/items I recommend to restrict of avoid.

So, I do not think this is the best choice for a veggie burger.

Dr Praeger was also caught lying about his products, its ingredients and his attempts to correct this situation. As a result, the AHA removed their seal from his products.

>>also what about organic soymilk also.

Again, there are so many varieties of soy milk, with so many nutritional profiles, you would have to look at the different ones. However, I do not think of soymilk as a "food" but at best, as a condiment. Same with soy. You may want to scroll down in the forum and read some of the posts on soy and soymilk. So, if used, you would want to find the one that had the best nutritional profile and even then, it should be very limited at best.

>>also, why do raw foodists say that anything frozen and then heated, cooked is unhealthy, toxic, lacking vital nutrients as I know people who have eaten 90% heated, cooked food all their lives and they live into their nineties healthy still

Well, I agree with you.

The Chinese & Japanese Centenarians, along with many, if not most all other centenarians, who live to over 100, and some over 110, in fairly good health, live on diets that are mostly cooked.

Go figure. :)

In Health
Jeff
