Food counterfeit: how to distinguish a fake?

We don’t always like to wear forged clothes, but it’s not capable of doing such harm as fake products made from chemistry. Clothes in the worst case will shed or quickly tear, but food counterfeit can cause great damage to the body.

Every day we go to the grocery stores. Here are just manufacturers of food fakes are not asleep. They manage to forge not only brand clothes, but also food. Counterfeit accounts for more than half of the market. And these are most often the most dangerous products in this respect – milk and its derivatives, as well as meat.

For adults, such food is not beneficial, but it does not bring harm immediately, but accumulates in the body. But children can get not only poisoning, but also an allergy to the components that unscrupulous manufacturers add to the products. Therefore, it is important to learn how to separate quality products from their counterparts – fakes.

Meat
Manufacturers are trying to create a waste-free process. Therefore, in the course are even trimming meat. They glue them with special meat glue and give out for whole pieces of tenderloin. Such a piece costs several times more, and its quality is disgusting. Microbiologists believe that such meat is worse subjected to heat treatment, some parts may not fry at all. You can get serious poisoning. To distinguish such tricks of the manufacturer by eye is quite difficult. So try to shop with trusted suppliers.

Seafood
Do you like to eat smoked fish? Most modern industries try to save their time and money, so they use chemical “liquid smoke”. In many countries of the world it was banned because of its strongest carcinogenic properties. How to distinguish chemical smoking from the present? On the cut, fish made with natural smoking will have a yellowish tinge, and the fake will remain with a light cut, untouched by smoke.

Delicacies
Seafood is a real find for unscrupulous food producers. When buying frozen shrimps, we also pay for a significant amount of water. Most of them are not caught in clean and cold seas, but are grown artificially on special farms. Therefore, from them to the body much more harm than good. Manufacturers feed the shrimp with antibiotics and other additives so that the charges do not get sick. Such food can cause allergies or destroy the intestinal microflora. Try to buy shrimp marked “Atlantic”.

Caviar
Particularly tempting for manufacturers to fake expensive red caviar. Artificial consists more often of eggs, milk, gelatin, food flavors and additives (they can also harm the body!). Even if you do not harm this product, it’s a shame to overpay for counterfeit. Fake caviar has perfect eggs of the same size, they are sticky and have a sharp smell of herring, and it also often has a very viscous consistency.

Milk products
Of course, shop sour cream is difficult to compete with its own rustic cooking. But decent samples can be found on the counter. The composition of this product should include only cream and sourdough. No extraneous ingredients or vegetable fats. Its shelf life should be no more than 14 days. Otherwise, you are dealing with a powder product in which there is no benefit.
