Water-soluble vitamins

Water-soluble vitamins in the vitamin B group and vitamin C are affected by food preparation and cooking – they are very unstable.

They dissolve in water and can be destroyed by sunlight, air and heat and are affected by enzymes.

Enzymes are chemicals found inside plant cells that control the ripening process but they will destroy vitamins.
