Raw veganism goes one step further than veganism.

Why ?

Health : They are no other specie than human kind that cook his food before eating it. Heating is a chemical process than modify the molecular structure. Within heated food appears the "maillard effect" = nutriments are destroyed + undigestable macro-molecules that will retain nutriments appear. Fruits and vegetables are mainly pH basic, when classical diets (including cook vegan) are mainly acids.

Time saving : You save time at every step, preparation is simple and fast, dishes washing is minimalist...

Energy saving. You save gas, electricity, firewood, water (by not cooking but also by drinking less because your fruits and vegetables give you plenty of it and you have less toxins to eliminate).

Approaches

Classical raw vegan : uncook fruits, vegetables, leafs, nuts.

80/10/10 : 80% of carbohydrates, 10% of lipids, 10% of proteins ; uncook.

Fruitarians It is a more non violence ethical choice : ("when eating an apple you don't > have to kill the apple tree").

Gourmet Raw Food Preparation (this approach generally takes time, energy and monney, and is often too fatty).


Some raw food enthusiasts are willing to use dehydrators, blenders, food processors and many other implements to create new dishes and old favorites with raw ingredients. Others eschew much if not all mechanized food processing and seek to eat raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in their completely natural state.

Raw veganism has been strongly popularized in France by Thierry Casasnovas[[1]]
