Preservatives and Additives

Home » Fit Blog » Preservatives and Additives

Not only are GMOs (genetically modified organisms) a huge concern when it comes to our food, additives and preservatives are just as bad and making it impossible for people to eat a healthy diet. They are added to food to increase shelf life and can also be chemical creations that are cheaper to produce than using a more natural product. The article below discusses the top ten additives to avoid, but be aware that there are many more to watch out for. Not everyone is aware they should be looking at the ingredients label when purchasing their food or even what it means when they do. So it is important to educate yourself and be informed, because no one else will do it for you. If you read words you can’t pronounce or words you would learn in chemistry class on a list of ingredients, they are probably additives and preservatives. Take note of the list they give you in this article and look up any others you might come across. You would be surprised how much of the food you buy at the grocery store or online is made in a lab.
