Does anything beat the taste of food that’s freshly come out of a wood-fired oven? Sure, we don’t mind a curry when we’re in a hurry, or stew when it’s just you, but when you really want to put the love into a meal and serve it up to friends and family, there’s nothing on par with a wood-fired feast.

But with food that tastes so good, there’s usually a catch; it’s usually too tasty to be healthy.

Are we falling into the same trap with wood-fired foods? Or have we finally found the loophole in the taste/health ratio? Here, we leave the answer in the hands of the professionals at Sydney Fire Bricks.

Yes, wood-fired food is generally a healthier option

While the answer is more complex than a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’, wood-fired food is generally a much healthier option than other ways of cooking. It means that, essentially, we’ve outsmarted that ‘tasty-to-healthy’ inverted relationship.

But it depends what you’re cooking

Wood-fired food is healthier than most but, of course, it all depends on what you’re cooking. Theoretically, you could be cooking sugared donuts in your wood-fired oven – and we hate to break it to you, but sugared donuts aren’t healthy! There are, however, many healthy, nutrient-dense foods that can be cooked in your wood-fired oven. Fish, roasted meat, veggies and homemade pizza are all healthy options for wood-fired food.

Why is wood-fired food healthier than most?

There are actually a couple of interesting reasons for this. Let’s take a look at why wood-fired food can be a healthy change to your life:
