Avoid toxic products, learn to read food labels that you buy

Avoid toxic products, learn to read food labels that you buyA stroll down grocery store aisles can be very tempting: rows and rows of delicious food all packaged colorful, encouraging you to add to the cart, with catchy names and messages tempting, "natural", "tasty" , "economic", "delicious".
At first glance, if we were to take after attractive packaging, but sometimes intense taste of products, all food should be commercially available and nutritious and good, and of their consumull just to get benefits.
In order to better realize what is hidden behind an attractive label I want to talk a bit about processed foods. What is a processed food? Processed food is whose properties have been altered from their natural state for economic, convenience (high accessibility, speed training, etc.) but also safety. The methods used for processing foods include preserving, freezing, refrigeration, dehydration, aseptic processing, the addition of preservatives, fragrances, dyes, thickeners. There processed products that improve their quality, microbiological maintain a good condition, so that we, the consumers, we can take full advantage of their skills. As an example we can mention here the milk, which is pasteurized once a term of validity is SPF, does not require boiling before consumption which helps preserve vitamins and other nutrients. However, when we read the carton of milk out of milk normalized see that it does not contain anything else and give us easily realize that we face a sure thing. This thing can not be said about those products where the ingredients list spans several lines and those written in lowercase.Nutritionists have put in agreement that the best thing would be to avoid packaged products that contain more than 5 ingredients, following the principle that the more a product has more ingredients, the more likely it is processed.For these reasons we must learn to read the labels of the products we buy to avoid commercial traps and long-term effects of toxins.Choose to describe in the following well-known label Romanian pork pate.

Salt - the exact amount is not specified, but the product is sufficiently salty.7. Corn starch - no known side effects by using it in normal amounts. He is added as a thickening agent because it has properties, but is a polysaccharide consisting of a chain of glucose molecules, has a high caloric load.8. Sugar - extra flavor, yet extra calories.9. Onions10. Wheat starch11. Polyphosphate - water is used to stabilize the product. Polyphosphates unbalanced calcium phosphorus balance, preventing the fixing calcium in bones. While, in the case of high consumption, osteoporosis can occur.12. Spice13. Yeast extract - or E 621, used in processed food to give more taste and flavor. Also masks bitter or sour taste of the product.14. Glycerol ESTERS OF CITRIC ACID - are some substances that slow digestion. By comparison, their digestion is similar to that of Bacon Pork.15.
