Foods You’ll NEVER Buy Again After Knowing How They Are Made
The food industry has many secrets, and you may not know how to do certain things to enjoy the products. Since you are not visiting the factory, you will not see any artificial additives that can increase your risk of diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
They are not on the plants because insects and rodent hair are packed with food. And as a carnivore you don’t have to look at the horror of killing and dismembering animals, because the work is done on farms, slaughterhouses and packaging companies.
On the other hand, for health reasons, you may know better how commercial foods are made. Get ready: some of these food industry secrets are pretty shocking.
From food additives that may not even be considered food to shocking cruelty to animals in production, you never want to buy the following 7 foods again
The more expensive and exclusive your cheese is, the more likely it is to contain a compound called lab. The rennet is in the stomach of lactating cows and is killed for it. The enzyme is critical to the process. However, if you don’t eat veal, how can you justify eating cheese?
There is a little warning that can make you feel better or not. Most basic cheeses today use genetically modified rennet that inserts cow DNA into selected strains of bacteria, fungi, and yeast. Babies are not killed, but genetically modified foods are quite suspect in themselves.
2. Chicken nuggets
You’ve probably seen this meme hanging around showing what looks like delicate pink ice cream, but they’re really mixed chicken pieces. The buzz is that these horrible things are what chicken nuggets do. Good news, it is not. Chicken nuggets are made from ground chicken breast.
Bad news, ground chicken is only half the pip. The rest is a bloody mixture of skin, blood vessels, bones, connective tissue and fat. Add starch, sugar, salt and binder, as well as nameless fillings, and you get a real chicken nugget.
3. Citrus lemonades
The beautiful sour buzz you get from citrus-flavored drinks has nothing to do with fruits of any kind. Instead, the artificial citrus aroma is mixed with some mixed brominated vegetable oil (BVO) that retains the aroma built into the soda instead of floating on it. BVO is used in all types of non-food industrial products and as a flame retardant.
BVO was banned in Europe, but in the 1970s, the FDA decided that there was safe consumption for Americans. The subject has never been reviewed. Thank you guys for ruining Mountain Dew, Powerade Strawberry Lemonade, Squirt, Gatorade Thirst Quencher Orange, Fanta Orange, Sunkist Pineapple and Fresca Original Citrus, among others.
4. Coffee cream
A little cream in your coffee or tea is a mild and less bitter drink. It can seriously make a difference. However, if you are not using real milk or cream, do not use any milk product at all. It turns out that liquid non-milk creams consist entirely of oil.
Okay, it’s not ALL oils. They also contain cellulose gel or cellulose rubber, texturing agents made of cellulose or cotton. Carrageenan thickens things up, but it’s hell for people with inflammatory disorders or digestive problems. Cream powders are even worse: they contain so many chemicals that they are actually flammable.
5. Canned mushrooms
Did you know that the FDA found acceptable amounts of things like rodent hair, insects, and other “unwanted material” in all of our foods? If you don’t buy all of your clean food and cook it yourself, chances are you are eating things you never intended.
Canned mushrooms are one of the worst offenders, as federal guidelines allow 20 or more worms in each can. Only 20 worms are enough to miss our lunch, but what about this “more” part? When are there too many worms to sell a can of mushrooms? As consumers, they really don’t want us to know.
Sometimes our food additives come from strange and incomplete places. Take Isinglass. It is an ingredient used in beer to clarify the finished product, and no one likes it when crystal yeast floats in their beer.
Isinglass comes from fish, so far so good. When it takes a turn, you notice that it comes from dried fish bubbles. Sorry guys, the beer is coarser than we knew. And for Vegeta
