by Emily Jacob (2019-03-28)

How Bad Are Processed Foods? Fresh foods American Super Collagencontain many nutrients, such as soluble fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and natural fats, designed by nature to protect your body. Not only do processed foods lack these important nutrients, they also contain many unsavory ingredients that have been proven to harm your health. Studies have concluded that regular consumption of processed foods can lead to a myriad of health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Therefore, if you don't cook or are crunched for time and have to rely on processed foods for your sustenance, the least you can do is to choose processed foods that don't contain the following harmful ingredients: Trans Fats Trans fats are the worst of all fats because they boost your levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol and decrease your "good" HDL cholesterol. That's double trouble for your heart and arteries. Trans fats are factory-created fats. The process of hydrogenation alters the chemical structure of liquid vegetable oils, such as those made from corn, soybean, safflower, or sunflower. Manufacturers prefer to use trans fats because they have a higher melting point (which makes them attractive for baking) and a longer shelf-life. Trans fats can be found in baked goods, crackers, snack foods, microwave popcorn, stick margarine, French fries and many other processed foods. Restaurant food, especially fast food, is often laden with trans fats. Check the ingredient list for words like "partially hydrogenated oil" or "hydrogenated oil". Even if the packaging says "0 gram trans fat", it might still contain less than 0.5 gram of trans fat. When you are eating several servings a day, it can add up. High Fructose Corn Syrup
