Raw food diet

A raw food diet consists of uncooked and unprocessed, and often organic foods.

A raw food diet consists fully of foods which have not been heated above a certain temperature.

The maximum temperature varies among the different forms of the diet, from 92ºF to 118ºF (33°C to 48°C).

Raw food diets may include raw fruits, raw vegetables, raw nuts, raw seeds, raw unpasteurized dairy products such as raw milk, raw meat, raw eggs, and raw honey.
