In general, raw vegetables have more bioavailable nutrients and minerals, but many people find it difficult to eat them in that form. So, given many people’s preferences to cook their veggies, there is sometimes an additional benefit to heating them up. For example, carrots, when cooked, have more bioavailability of beta-carotene, an important source of vitamin A, when they’re cooked rather than raw. Lycopene, the antioxidant that makes tomatoes red, is best absorbed when cooked as well.
