For patients with gastritis, the most appropriate methods of thermal culinary treatment of food during cooking are boiling (including steaming) and stewing. Therefore, stew for gastritis can be included in the menu of almost any diet for inflammation of the gastric mucosa.

The benefits of stews

Stewed meat and vegetables are useful, because during their heat treatment in this way - on low heat, under a lid - they retain a significant part of the vitamins (especially fat-soluble ones) and the macro- and microelements necessary for the body, but a smaller amount of fiber in vegetables reduces intestinal gas formation.

Since in most cases, patients with inflammation of the stomach, fresh (i.e. Raw) vegetables are contraindicated (except for periods of persistent remission), you can and should eat stewed vegetables for gastritis.
