Harmful Food Ingredients

Harmful Food Ingredients

 

Some of the ingredients lurking in our foods do not provide nutrition and are not beneficial to our health . . . some are downright harmful.

 

      Some harmful ingredients are added to food to improve texture, flavor, add artificial sweetness, and/or to have an addictive effect - It is to your benefit to be able to identify these additives, be aware of the effects they have on your body, and then make a conscious choice to avoid products containing them.

 

      Some food ingredients may be beneficial in moderation, but are detrimental when taken to excess - E.g. caffeine, fructose, glucose, alcohol; 

 

Examples of harmful foods

MSG

- “Monosodium Glutamate and other forms of Neurotoxic Free Glutamic Acid”

Too much fructose

 - "Burdens liver

/  Favors fat production"

 

 

High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)

 

In moderation this simple sugar benefits health, but in excess (>25g /day – equivalent to a few pieces of fruit/day), fructose causes metabolic syndrome, which is involved in such problems as high blood pressure, weight gain, abdominal obesity, decreased HDL, increased LDL, elevated triglycerides, elevated blood sugar, INSULIN resistance, all underlying factors in Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Fructose is found in:

 

Sodas - a regular sized can of non-diet soda supplies 23g fructose, a super sized 63g

Honey - ~70% fructose

Agave nectar ( a cleverly marketed highly processed sap, containing from 56-92% fructose, depending on manufacturer)

High-fructose corn syrup - ~55% and higher fructose

Table sugar (sucrose) - ~50% fructose

Maple syrup - ~48% fructose

Fruit – with highest fructose grams consumed in certain fruit – raisins,  mango (32g fructose),  and fruit juices (E.g. Orange Juice);

 

Too much sugar

- "A common addiction affecting health"
