Bear in mind the days when we shopped in food market segments no bigger when compared to a convenience store? They were packed with locally grown fresh fruits and veggies and vegetables, meat, almonds, beans, and grains. Marketplaces back then had only a couple shelves that were stocked with non-perishable foods. Hyggelig cafe København
Today, it’s the opposite. We now have supermarkets that are primarily stocked with non-perishable food items that can sit down on a shelf for a long time. They are called “processed foods. ” There are many reasons why this shift has taken place, but the real matter is, how do we now maneuver through a world packed with artificial food? That’s a valid matter, so hopefully the next information will help you sort through this confusing world of food options
Most fully prepared foods are actually not real food at all. Real food is surviving, and will spoil. Totally processed foods may include a few “real food” ingredients; however those items have been processed in order to give it a profitable shelf life – which finally reduces it from a living food, to an non-active food. Dead food can sit on a corner for a long time.
Many manufacturers add addictive chemicals to their fully processed foods in order to cause cravings and hook us into consuming their product often; therefore driving up their profits. I read yrs ago about MSG’s hallucinogenic effects that cause us to crave the food that is laced with MSG. These chemicals get lost in the large set of ingredients. Many times people will eat the food and ignore the dangers. Usually they just don’t want to, or don’t have the time to investigate every element. They are driven by their appetite and urges because the last time they ate the food it gave them great enjoyment. But as we know, just because something was enjoyable, does not mean it turned away safe.
Fortified and Rampacked Food
Fortified and rampacked foods typically originate as real food, however with the healthiest part removed; either purposely removed, or destroyed during the digesting stage. This is certainly done to give the product a lengthy and profitable shelf-life. Regrettably, the part that ruins is the part that contains the greatest health advantages. Adding synthetic vitamins, vitamins, and fiber back into the item does not make up for the lost natural nutrition. It simply the actual product look better. Again, this reduces the real food to artificial food – deceased food.
Here’s an interesting fact about fortified foods. In case the manufacturer does not complete step two, by treating artificial nutrition back into the item, then it may not be sold in a grocery store. A druggist told me years before that it can be against the law to sell this kind of product in a food market because really not really food! With out being “fortified” with unnatural nutrients it could only be bought from a drug store. Remember, our bodies are alive, plus they require food that’s in – in order to remain alive!
