Processed foods

“Processed foods not only extend the shelf life, but they extend the waistline as well.” – Karen Sessions

The first image that comes to mind for most people when they hear the term “processed food” is a wrapped burger and a sleeve of fries served over a counter at a fast food joint. What is processed food anyway? If it’s boxed, bagged, canned or jarred and has a list of ingredients on the label, it’s processed. Methods used to process foods include:

  • Canning
  • Freezing
  • Refrigeration
  • Dehydration
  • Aseptic Processing

Processed foods have been altered from their natural state for “safety” and convenience reasons.
