Harmful food additives
Firstly, not all supplements with the “E” index are dangerous or harmful. This index was introduced only to encode complex and long names of chemical compounds used in the food industry.
It is more appropriate to ask another question - is it normal that in the composition of ordinary hard cheese you can count several chemical additives that improve its color and texture? The answer is simple - probably the manufacturer seeks to reduce the cost of the product.
The most harmful products
A short list of the most harmful products that can be found in an ordinary Russian supermarket: sausages, processed and curd cheeses, crab sticks, ice cream and sweet yogurts, carbonated drinks and chewing gums.
Try to cook any of them at home, and immediately understand why you need the additives listed in the list above. Using natural ingredients, you simply never get the very product that is sold in stores.
