This is a very compound question, so please accept relatively short answers.

- blending
- freezing
- cooking

Do all of these methods cause denaturising and oxidation of food?

DG: Oxidative: yes
denaturing: requires heat or chemistry, so blending nor freezing will tend to result in such damage.

m eating 80/10/10 with blended banana smoothies and some frozen durian, and would like to know if those foods are being damaged by these storage and preparation methods?

DG: Freezing and blending each result in oxidative damage to foods, yes. They also make certain nutrients more readily available. Of course, the length of freezing and blending also matter, as damage increases with time exposure.

Also, is it true that the body always has an immune reaction to denatured foods (cytoleukosis)?

DG: Yes.

What if someone were to just have lightly steamed broccoli, would that still cause a reaction?

DG: Yes.
