Harmful and healthy products
Fiber is a type of complex carbohydrate that is unable to be digested by the enzymes of the human stomach, but is useful for the intestines and digestive system functions. The main products containing fiber are plants. It is most found in grains and stalks of vegetables - in fact, it is coarse dietary fibers that make up their dense structure.
In fact, fiber-free foods are what harm digestion and health. We all know that healthy foods are fiber foods (vegetables and fruits), while fiber-free foods are harmful mayonnaise, Coca-Cola, sugar, and other similar foods.
For a long time margarine was banned in the United States, Australia, as well as other countries. For the most part, this is a rather dangerous product that increases blood cholesterol and disrupts the functioning of cell membranes due to the content of trans fats. In addition, it contributes to the development of vascular disease and impotence. Daily use of 40g margarine increases the risk of heart attack by 50%. In addition, it is no secret that margarine is a product of oil refining.
2. Fruit ice
Fruit ice is a mixture of fructose syrup, flavors, colorants, flavors, stabilizers and preservatives. There is no benefit from such a composition, but there is a danger - the accumulation of a large number of food additives in the body affects the metabolism and has a carcinogenic effect. The only advantages of such desserts are a minimum of calories (less than 100 kcal) and a wonderful refreshing effect during a hot walk.
3. Breakfast cereals
Recipes for making cereals and pads involve the processing of small cereals, which eventually turns into flour and 100% fast carbohydrates. And, for example, to make corn flakes, the cereal is boiled for several hours in sugar syrup, then flattened and fried at high temperature, after which it is poured with caramel. In terms of calorie content, they are almost equal to a chocolate bar or a piece of cake (400 Kcal / 100 gr.).
4. Chicken krill
The recipe for grilled chicken: take the veiled chicken breast, which was not sold in the store, soak for several hours in a bucket of spices and flavor enhancers, put on a dirty wire rack and fry for several hours. As a result, this product will collect all the most harmful that is possible - here you will find both carcinogens, and sodium glutamate, and, quite possibly, a whole colony of pathogenic bacteria.
5. Ice cream
Most modern ice cream is made from dried or reconstituted milk, sugar, palm oil, flavors and colorings. The most harmful components are vegetable fats of unknown origin and huge doses of sugar. It is fundamentally wrong to consider ice cream a dairy product, and to think that the benefits of milk extend to it. There is really nothing in common.
Firstly, white chocolate does not contain chocolate as such - it contains pure fat and sugar. Secondly, most chocolate products are called chocolate bars, which should also be suspicious - such products contain a minimum of cocoa powder and a maximum of sugar and low-quality (but cheap) vegetable fats. When it comes to the benefits of chocolate, they mean a natural product.
7. Sweet Yoghurts
Yoghurts consist of starch, soy or other vegetable protein, reconstituted milk, dyes, sugar and harmful glucose-fructose syrup. All that we consider as pieces of fruit is the extracts remaining from jelly, marmalades, juices. Fruit and berry odors mimic added molds. Yoghurts are considered dairy products, but milk and cream in them are present only in advertising.
Sunflower seeds can easily be called one of the most harmful products. In addition, they are high-calorie and contribute to fullness, disrupt normal digestion, with them a huge amount of microbes and carcinogens enter the body. The content of healthy vegetable fats in them is minimal, but the maximum content of cheap industrial fats on which they are fried. Chia seeds are much healthier.
9. Chewing gum
Chewing gum is a product that is slightly less than completely composed of nutritional supplements. It is very dangerous for human life and health with regular use “after meals” (as advertisements teach us). It contains more than 10 additives with the E index - these are sugar substitutes, stabilizers, food colors, and many others. It is especially harmful to use chewing gum on an empty stomach.
First of all, tuna sashimi is really a diet dish, which cannot be said about California or Tempura rolls. Secondly, the harm to land can be that parasites can enter the human body from unprocessed seafood. Even if the fish is dried, dried or smoked, this will not help get rid of the same worm. Therefore, when ordering sushi, think about whether it is worth doing.
The most “useful” ingredient of crackers like “Kirieshki” or “Three crusts” is bread. Even the seasoned food technologist can frighten the rest of the composition - preservatives and stabilizers, dyes, flavor enhancers and fragrances, vegetable oils and fats. Such a product is not only harmful, it is openly dangerous to health, and can cause serious diseases.
The composition of processed cheeses includes cheese of not the best quality - the one that has already rotted, lost its shape, is immature or has deteriorated in any other way. It is smelted (by the way, all the benefits are lost), flavorings, preservatives, animal fats and other chemical ingredients are added to it, then it is poured into a jar and put on the shelf of the supermarket.
13. Sports drinks
Sports isotonics are positioned as "sports", but, in fact, they can hardly be called such. Look at the composition on the label - are you surprised by the calorie content and sugar content? One bottle of such water will reduce to zero the loss of calories from an hour of running or swimming. These drinks include bottled tea, which contains an extremely high amount of sugar and calories.
The naturalness of the potato and the absence of pesticides when growing it is, of course, expensive and good, but the chips from this do not become less high-calorie. The stomach and foods are not happy about this - for him, this food is “heavy” and indigestible. In addition, any chips contain a lot of salt and fat - this is what the cooking process requires. Organic chips are no different from ordinary chips, but Himalayan salt is healthier.
15. Cottage cheese
Curd with raisins is an extremely high-calorie and harmful product. Firstly, it contains a lot of sugar (or even glucose-fructose syrup), and secondly, there is no guarantee that this is real cottage cheese. See the labeling of products, often even the usual-looking cottage cheese is called the “cottage cheese product”, which means that 50% of the cottage cheese accounts for 50% of vegetable fats and impurities imitating cottage cheese.
Everything that can be said about the dangers of breakfast cereals is easily transferred to various granola and pressed bars. The benefits of such products are only in our head - even the manufacturer rarely dares to say that such products are something other than dessert or a treat. The huge content of sugar, caramel and flavorings make them tasty, but there is no use there.
17. Olive oil
If scientists say that olive oil is good for the heart, this does not mean that it should be added to all dishes or drunk in glasses. Do not forget that, like any oil, it contains almost 900 kcal per 100 g, and is easily stored in fat. It is also important that olive oil can be cooked , although the beneficial properties disappear when heated to 140-150 degrees, no harm is formed.
When they talk about the benefits of juices, they mean natural freshly squeezed juices, and not what is sold in our stores. Did you know that the phrase “recommended for baby food” means that the juice is diluted with water, and the child’s body can absorb it, because children under three do not digest natural juices? Not to mention the high sugar and sweetener content in packaged juices.
Sausages are a true masterpiece of food production. Even the most expensive and “elite” varieties contain, in addition to meat, many ingredients - preservatives for long storage, thickeners to shape, colorings and flavor enhancers to remind meats. Nitrates, nitrites, phosphates, cochineal, carrageenan - all this makes sausages and sausages so fragrant, tasty and attractive in appearance.
Do not let yourself be fooled - the various varieties of mayonnaise such as "Olive", "Light" and others - are no different from the usual. They include vegetable and animal fats, egg powder, thickeners and preservatives, and sometimes carcinogenic trans fats . One of the main dangers of mayonnaise is its extreme calorie content, which makes it easy to turn into subcutaneous fat.
One of the most harmful ingredients in industrially manufactured products is the sodium glutomat flavor enhancer. It incredibly enhances the appetite, makes any meat or mushroom product incredibly tasty.
Another product to be aware of, and which should be avoided, is glucose-fructose syrup, commonly used in the confectionery industry. It is significantly sweeter than sugar, but leads to rapid obesity.
