This unhealthy groceries shouldn’t be in your fridge and much less in your stomach, their place is in the garbage. Not only that they are not healthy but they are poisonous.
Today, as never before, it is very important to carefully read declarations stamped on the food we buy and take care of the things we eat. We present you the list of groceries that you should avoid and especially to keep them away from your kids.
They are categorized as food with worst quality. In their production usually is used meat form the worst category because it’s cheapest. Around 50% of the pate is not meat but water, fats, skin, isolates, salt, spices, intestines etc…
All together with them there is also great amount of salt which you can’t taste it because of dextrose which neutralizes the taste. Also there is a special category the so called vegetarian pates made from soya, mushroom, tomato etc. They are rich in vegetable oils and the fat level is higher than in the regular ones.
Margarine is hydrogenated vegetable oil usually sunflower or corn oils. The process of hydrogenation means that the oils are transformed from solid to liquid and then vitamins A, D and E are added in order the mixture to be similar to butter.
In the production process trans fats are created for which it is proven that affect the level of bad cholesterol. Consumption of margarine is related to increasing the risks of illnesses and cardiovascular diseases.
Around 75% of mayonnaise is consisted of sunflower oil. 100 g of mayonnaise have more calories than 100 g bacon with the difference that bacon contains proteins and vitamins.
Light mayonnaise have less fats but they don’t have any nutritional value. Mayonnaise with olive oil has around 15% olive oils and the rest is sunflower or corn oils.
Processed cheese has around 50% cheese and the rest is water, proteins, fats, different additives which are in an amount twice bigger than in regular cheese.
In the production process all of the probiotic and other bacteria which have positive influence on our digestive track are lost. And processed cheese has more calories than regular cheese.
Chocolate is great grocery because it contains antioxidants. They slow down the process of aging of the cells and may increase the amount of blood in the brain. Although real chocolate has 50% sugar due to the great amount of fats it improves the mood and concentration. It is regulated by the law that products which don’t contain enough cocoa can’t be declared as chocolate but as cocoa candy, sugar candy, substitute for chocolate etc.
They contain extra sugar and instead of cocoa butter mainly it is used hydrogenated vegetable oils or palm tree oils. Although real chocolate contains around 50% sugar due to great amount of fats doesn’t create insulin reaction in the organism. Sugar input should be limited and our advice is to consume chocolate with great amount of cocoa.
They contain stimulants such as caffeine, taurine and more than 10% sugar except if they are not diet. In this products there is more caffeine than coffee. Stimulants increase blood pressure, fasten the work of the heart, influence the sleeping pattern and dehydrate the organism.
Combined with alcohol they may be dangerous because energy drinks work as stimulants and alcohol as depressant. This effect of a stimulant disables the estimation on how much drinks you had and how that influences you.
Soy contains anti nutrients such as phytic acid which disables the absorption of minerals such as iron, zinc and magnesium. Although soya has many proteins it also contains an inhibitor of protein metabolism. If the soya proteins are well processed our organism can’t absorb them.
Soy products should be avoided especially by men because there are some indicators that phyto hormones may decrease the level of testosterone and increase the level of some other hormones characteristic for women.
