With the living conditions getting better and better, people's living standards are also gradually improved, and people are gradually paying attention to diet health. In this issue, we will take stock of the unhealthy foods in our life that even experts don't buy. 1. Fish fillets
Generally, fried fish fillets are made of COD. This kind of fish is rich in unsaturated fatty acids (DHA, etc.) which are beneficial to health. All kinds of fish fillets and fish fillets are labeled as' nutrition '. However, please note that there are often 10 or 20 ingredients listed on the package / bag of cod fillets, and the cumbersome processing has made it less healthy - a lot of salt, monosodium glutamate and saturated fat brought in during frying. Therefore, if you buy processed fish products, their harm to human health may have exceeded their benefits.
2. Filling thick soup
Soups are very healthy, cheap and easy to make. But canned soups are a very low nutritional 'mixture' of salt, fat, artificial additives, preservatives, and perhaps dehydrated carrots. A can of soup contains 1000 milligrams of sodium, about half of what you need every day. Therefore, it's better to prepare your own chicken, beef bones and vegetables, and make a bowl of hot and fragrant soup yourself.
3. Green tea beverage
Asian people generally like to drink green tea, and even turn it into an art. Green tea contains antioxidants and other healthy ingredients that can prevent cancer, heart disease, aging and other aging related diseases. But most Americans don't like the taste, so manufacturers add sugar and other additives to make green tea drinks and sell them everywhere under the guise of health drinks. In fact, any ingredient on the green tea bottle, such as saccharin and preservatives, makes it far away from us in terms of health.
4. Yogurt products
Yogurt is fermented from fresh milk, which is rich in protein, calcium and vitamins. Yogurt can be a good choice for those who cannot enjoy milk due to lactose intolerance. However, yogurt sold in major supermarkets in the United States has been made into 'desserts' full of sugar and various processed fruits, and businesses use these' packages' to disguise it as healthy food. Therefore, it is best to choose ordinary fat free yogurt when buying, and add some fruits when necessary.
5. Yellow brown potato
The yellowish brown potatoes produced in Iowa are cheaper and easier to grow than the common potatoes. However, after eating these potatoes, the starch they contain will soon turn into blood sugar, increasing the risk of diabetes and obesity. Because its taste is not very good, so many people have to take measures to make them taste more delicious: they are cooked, then mashed, stuffed with butter, or peeled and fried, then sprinkled with a layer of salt on the surface. The food made in this way is even more unhealthy.
Now, popcorn is no longer regarded as a healthy food as it used to be. In fact, popcorn is made from corn. It is rich in fiber, low in calories, and almost free of sugar, salt and fat. However, in order to improve the taste, microwave popcorn now adds a lot of additional ingredients, so it is no longer a healthy nutritional food. When buying popcorn, it is a good choice to choose cheap bulk products, and to control the amount of salt and butter.
The most common bread in the United States is the mass-produced white bun. High quality bread is really only made of flour, water, a little salt and yeast. However, today's packaged white bread contains sugar, corn syrup and many other ingredients. Once you swallow the processed food, it will quickly turn into blood sugar. Even many of today's mass-produced whole wheat breads are harmful to health, because they enhance the taste with 'harmful substances': sugar, salt, and softeners. It's best to choose raisin Oatmeal Bread or barley bread spread with pure jam.
8. Breakfast oatmeal, cornflakes
Wheat, barley, rice, oats and other cereals have always been the most important food for human beings. Their protein, dietary fiber and vitamins are incomparable to other foods. However, food producers are taking advantage of the word "cereal". They combine a small amount of cereal with a large amount of starch, white granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, food colors and preservatives to produce "colorful" breakfast cereals that are popular with children, greatly reducing the nutritional content of these cereals.
9. Commercialized organic food
Organic food is cultivated in a natural way and does not involve any pesticides or chemical fertilizers. It is almost regarded as the 'savior' in the era of food pollution. We have been pursuing this goal for more than 30 years. But driven by the interests, its nutritional value system began to appear crisis. The organic milk we're drinking now comes from captive cows that are forced to feed organic grains. There are also various kinds of 'junk food' marked with 'organic ingredients'. They are disguised as health food through organic labels. Only manufacturers know how much organic ingredients are in them.
In Italy, pizza is even protected by law, which stipulates that it must be made of whole wheat flour, tomato sauce, white cheese, olive oil, basil spices, etc. Pizza is very nutritious. Nowadays, many fast food chains sell pizzas with preservatives, cheap artificial fat, non nutritive canned fruit, long-term frozen meat, and a lot of salt & hellip; & hellip; these pizzas are very high in calories and sodium, but their nutritional value is not worth mentioning
