The fast way of life and the lack of time for making healthy meals today has become a normal everyday routine for a large number of people that buy and also use processed food.
Nowadays, there is a small percentage of people that grow food for their family.
If you are not one of those people, you need to review your way of living.
You’ve probably heard many times that the processed food we buy and are eating is with additives.
We will now clarify and correct what this means.
Avoid processed food as much as possible
Namely, there are four harmful ingredients that processed food contain, especially preserved.
Those compounds are very harmful to the health of the entire body.
These are gluten, flavor enhancers, preservatives, and also artificial colors.
More and more we can hear people avoid gluten due to allergies.
In addition, people are often unaware that their body tolerates this substance.
At the same time, this is exactly the reason for the unpleasant symptoms.
The bigger problem is that only some sources of gluten – wheat flour, barley, rye … are known to the people.
Also, gluten is actually hidden in many more products, especially in:
– Industrial snacks – chips
– Also, in baby food
In the food industry, it has almost become normal for food to contain the flavor enhancers.
Aromatic enhancers push us to eat more and more and also they haven`t other function.
Those compounds also can seriously endanger human health.
These are the famous “E” tags.
Moreover, the problem is that the average consumer does not have a clue of what these tags and numbers with the letter E actually mark.
Recently, it was a great discussion around the emulsifier E621, which contains snacks, sauces, pâtés, meat products, and also some spices.
In addition, more than 300 harmful additives are used in the production of processed food that:
– Change tastes
– Prolong their duration
– Irritate the palate
Preservatives are substances that are used in processed food products to extend the shelf life of the product.
When a “preservative” is written on the product, know that it is a preserve that has been put in order for the goods to reach distant places.
In that way, the companies can transport food to distant places.
Some of the most famous preservatives are:
– Salt that we use in the kitchen
– Lactic acid
Those that are most often used at the last time are:
– Sorbic acid and its salts
– Also dangerous sodium nitrite
Namely, nitrates and nitrites are added in food to preserve freshness and also to give a nice – attract the color of the product.
Those compounds can be converted into carcinogenic compounds in our body.
What is more appealing to your eyes, dry grapes or colorful candies of bright colors?
Food manufacturers also know what they are doing!
Color is a very powerful factor in attracting customers.
Moreover, that is the reason why artificial colors are added to a large number of products.
Numerous studies have confirmed that artificial colors used in the processed food products are not harmless.
Some of the consequences of the constant consumption of artificial colors into the body are:
– Hyperactivity in children
– Premature birth
– Also, can cause cancer
The harmful consequences of entering these four most potent compounds are not visible immediately.
But over time, as they accumulate in the body, you can notice the consequences.
