Technology has pushed local artisanal processing to the side for heavy machinery and dangerous additives that strip food of its nutrients and impede digestion.
Modern food processing is dependent on sugar, white flour, processed oils, synthetic additives and high heat. Perhaps in some cases the process starts with a whole food, but what comes out at the end very rarely can be considered either wholesome or nutritious. It’s main claim to fame is that it makes a lot of money for those who produce it.
Beware of ingredients in food that you can’t pronounce, chances are that they don’t belong in the food and may cause you harm. Read your labels carefully and eat as close to nature as you can, always!
