Why is processed food bad?
It’s one of those things that seems like if
we hear it enough times that it become true
and we all accept
yes.
processed food is bad.
But we want to understand why it bad so that
we can make smarter choices.
Coming right up (logo) Whole food vs processed
food.
What’s the difference?
So food can be very harshly processed and
totally destroyed or it can be mildly processed
and retain most of its original properties.
So we are going to talk about why processed
food is bad and what you need to know.
First reason that processed food is bad is
that it removes nutrients.
So whole food has a full spectrum of nutritents
for example we have fat and protein and carbohydrates
and fiber and essential fatty acids, and then
at the top here is all the rest of the stuff.
That is enzymes and the vitamin complexes
and minerals and the phyto nutrients the micro
nutrients and those hundreds of thousands of
things that we keep finding new stuff everyday.
They know it is good for us but they just
don’t know exactly what it is yet.
But whole food has it
and it is very very sensitive.
And that is the reason they process food in the first place.
That is the primary reason
they process food is to make it more stable.
to increase shelf life. And that means to remove the things that spoil, but
those things they remove are also the stuff that are nutritious.
They keep most of the fat, protein, and the starch. But they remove most of the fiber.
Because a lot of times the fiber is associated with certain essential fatty acids.
So fiber is reduced to a fraction, and in some foods they remove it completely. Essential fatty acids
are very very heat sensitive. They are very unstable. They don’t last very long
that is why healthy food perishes quickly, so in order to create stability
they remove them completely or almost all the way.
And then all this stuff up here. The micro nutrients the enzymes the phyto factors
those are also very nutritious and very unstable, so lets get rid of them so the thing can sit
on the shelf for years and years and years and have no flavor, but it also won’t deteriorate.
So that is the first problem
is that they retain the macro nutrients: the fat, protein,
and carbohydrate, but they remove
most of the things that nature put in there that’s all the other stuff that actually
that turns out to be the nutritious stuff
The second reason
processed food is bad. It is a bad idea
is that it changes how the food gets into the body.
it changes the delivery route. It changes the speed
and that in turn changes everything about your physiology and your hormonal responses.
