6 scandalous facts about the products that we love so much
In desire there is only useful things, we are ready to spend money and efforts. But this is not always justified. Modern manufacturers without a twinge of conscience poison our bodies in order to get benefits. And at the same time, they hide their technologies behind beautiful advertising and packaging with an “eco” badge.
We all care about our health and, whenever possible, we try to buy healthy products. Food labeled “non-GMO”, “pure”, “natural”, “eco” costs much more than products without such marking on the packaging. But in fact, naturalness and environmental friendliness are not specified by any parameters and are not controlled in any way. Should I overpay for beautiful promises?
Pischeviki in their production often use such ingredients and technology, which are simply modestly silent. Otherwise, their products would simply cease to be in demand. But in the last decade, many unpleasant secrets of manufacturers revealed. Not everyone knows about them yet. Therefore, be sure to share information with friends and acquaintances.
1. Eco-friendly Greek Yogurt
Fans of tasty and healthy organic food can be unpleasantly surprised to learn how their favorite Greek yogurt or cheese causes environmental damage. It turns out that the remains of acid whey after their production are illegally discharged into the sea and other water bodies. Decomposition products of this substance are very toxic. They destroy oxygen molecules dissolved in water, resulting in the death of plants and fish.
2. Unhealthy orange juice
Great advertising, where beautiful people drink orange juice, looks amazing. The subconscious mind says that it would be necessary to drink this useful drink daily in order to become just as attractive. And here on the table is the packaging of an ideal to taste and balanced in flavor orange juice, in which there is little left of the juice. When processing from natural juice both aroma, and many useful substances are removed. Needless to say that it is replaced by flavors. And it’s better to keep silent about the amount of water, sugar or its substitutes, so as not to frighten particularly impressionable ones.
3. Poison vegan burgers
Do not hide the fact that in veganism people are hit not only from ideological motives or love for animals. For some, this is fashion, and for others – the replacement of the diet. Only here the popular vegan burgers with soy protein instead of meat will not only not support your health, but also are able to seriously destroy it. So, in the production of soy flour using hexane, which is part of the fuel and combustible gases. And soy itself is 95% grown from a genetically modified material.
4. Arguably healthy milk
Experts of the old school, like a real sommelier, know exactly how to determine the region of production based on the taste of milk. But with modern milk such a thing will not work. Herds of several hundred or thousand heads do not eat fresh grass at all, but feed on ready-made mixtures of genetically modified materials (such as canned food for us). In addition, for high productivity they are fed hormones, and they are protected from diseases by antibiotics.
Above the received milk is mocked even more: standardize, enrich, pasteurize and homogenize. Milky smell is not distinguishable even when heated. And really cream from it just will not work.
5. Is there any soup?
The benefits of the first dish in the daily diet can not talk. But this applies only to homemade soups. What to do if there is no time, but you want to eat the first one? Ready-made semi-finished products are definitely not a healthy food option. They contain a huge amount of monosodium glutamate and other flavor enhancers. And do not believe the assurances of manufacturers that this is the common table salt. Laboratory rats from such an “improver” lose their sight, their mental abilities decrease, and harmful tumors begin to grow.
6. Absolutely not virgin olive oil.
Are you still looking for extra virgin olive oil? Do not overpay for 11 letters on the package. Moreover, manufacturers are often unscrupulous and mix olive oil with regular sunflower, soy and other cheap substitutes. And the country of production and at all prefer not to specify.
