What I'm Learning about the Food Industry

The more I continue my study on health and the food industry, the more sickened I am.

Did you know?

Canned Pineapple can contain up to 20 percent moldy fruits!

Canned tomatoes can contain 5 fly eggs or 2maggots per 500 grams!
Frozen Broccoli can contain 60mites per 100 grams!

Peanut butter can cotain 30 insect fragments or 1 rodent hair per 100 grams!

Popcorn can contain 1 rodent pellet!

Potato Chips can contain 6 percent rotten potatoes!

Did you also know that Companies must pay to be an American Certified Heart Associated Certified food? (AHA) Some companies say the product is certifed, but this isn't true!

Did you also know that leaner cuts of turkey, chicken and beef prodcuts have the highest sodium levels? This is because they use water, salt and other nutrients to help preserve the meat. You think by purchasing leaner cuts of these items, you are being healthier, but that isnt alway the case.

This news makes me very frustrated! I will keep you updated on the more food research and I continue my investigation in understanding the food industry.
