peter liem's writings are very good and he has a detailed champagne website (http://www.champagneguide.net) but it's behind a paywall. burghound also has a great champagne section (makes sense consider how close the regions are) but it's also behind a paywall

imagine! those damned writers actually want to get paid! the nerve.

Unbelievable.

well i still pay for burghound because i think the information is worth it but I would like it if there were a good crowdsourced option like beer advocate or rate beer for wine (and spirits) as well. i feel like the current ones like snooth or cellar tracker aren't really catching on

Why are there no published studies regarding the extent of denaturation by oxidization/temperature/... when juicing or preparing smoothies? Too much lobbying by Vitamix & co?

Probably because nobody gives a shit.

I've googled a bit and the only thing that came up is a Dr. Brian Clement who claims that after 90-120 seconds of mixing (which seems quite long) 90% of the vitamins are denaturized. That's a bold statement but he doesn't seem to provide proof. Neither do the big companies bring up any contradicting data.

The denatured argument started long ago in body building circles... About PROTEIN It's not worth worrying about. Applying the concept to vitamins is just the myth spreading even further. denaturing is not a negative. It just means a change of state. And that change could as easily be for the better.
