How companies are cashing in on our desire to eat healthy foods


Not all manufacturers of organic products are willing to take the additional costs are therefore forced to use the same stabilizers and preservatives, as in conventional products.
Healthy lifestyle has become a universal trend that followed by millions of people. And where millions of sharks out there and businesses wishing to collect from each of these several million dollars. Catching consumer demand for healthy and quality food, they offer us sometimes just a fake, wrapped in a colorful wrapper with inscriptions about the health benefits. In this article, you'll learn about those products, which many consider a healthy food, but they really are not.

Breakfast Cereals
A huge number of people eat them in the morning and rest assured that this is correct, balanced diet. However, this is not so. Cereals usually contain a huge amount of sugar and refined carbohydrates that have on our body does not have a positive impact. Therefore it is better to eat for breakfast something closer to its natural, natural mind, for example vegetables.

Low-fat yogurt
Numerous advertising presents us with them almost as an elixir of life, which returns the health and youth. But in reality, the product is low-fat yoghurt with a high degree of processing, during which the producers were removed saturated fats, adding at the same time, many other elements, such as sugar, fructose, artificial sweeteners.

Fruit juices
Fruit juice typically has a very high content of sugar and has a very low fiber content. And some of them do not have anything to do with the fruit depicted on the label, as entirely composed of water, sugar and flavorings. So it will be much more useful to eat and give your child the moment apple, orange or grape than drink this vodichku tinted with flavorings and colorings.

Diet Coke
This drink is being promoted as a healthy alternative to the usual pops. No sugar - no calories - there is no harm. But scientists conducted studies (1, 2, 3) found that long-term use of Diet Coke leads to the opposite effect. Contained in the beverage, artificial sweeteners, conversely, stimulate appetite, so that one resulting from the transition to a more cola fatter and not lose weight.

Organic food
The desire of consumers to a healthy diet even spawned a new category of products called "organic food". It is presented to us as a perfectly clean and healthy products, which falls on the table straight from the fields and farms, has no chemical additives and is not processed.
However, there really is different. It turns out that chemical food additives invented not to poison us, and to ensure greater safety of products and high productivity. It turns out that the rejection of these substances requires a completely different approach to the transport and storage of products, which leads to a significant increase in their cost. And it turns out that not all producers of organic products are willing to take these costs and still have to use the same stabilizers and preservatives, as in conventional products. And if we take into account that a recent study found no conclusive evidence of beneficial effects of organic food on health, the case at all smacks of grandiose scam.
