What are Processed Foods?

When talking about processed foods, it is not just about microwave meals and other precooked, ready to go meals. The term ‘processed food’ is applied to any food that has been altered from its natural state into various forms. This can be either for convenience or to preserve the food, as it is not going to be eaten in the short term.

You might be consuming more processed foods than you’re aware of. It’s common to wonder if all processed foods are unhealthy. The answer isn’t straightforward; while not all processed foods are detrimental, it’s crucial to acknowledge that even the options considered healthier often have higher levels of salt, sugar, and sometimes unhealthy fats.

Choosing to Prepare Meals from Scratch

Preparing meals from scratch is a great way to support healthier eating. It empowers you to control the ingredients, favouring healthier alternatives such as olive oil or coconut oil over saturated or unhealthy fats, while also eliminating salt and sugar.

However, exercise caution during meal preparations, as you might inadvertently include processed ingredients in your homemade meals. In such cases, prioritize reading labels for salt, sugar, artificial additives, and unhealthy fats.

Additionally, consider opting for organic items in jars instead of cans, given that supermarket grocery aisles, fridges, and freezer foods often contain processed options.

Processed foods, including ready meals, baked goods, and processed meats, pose a health risk, offering minimal nutritional value and contributing to severe health issues. The consumption of highly processed foods has been linked to weight gain, a heightened risk of type 2 diabetes, food sensitivities, allergies, cancer, and heart failure.

Processed Foods Posing Serious Health Risks!

Food processing techniques include freezing, canning, baking, drying, fermentation and pasteurising.

The consumption of highly processed foods has been linked to weight gain, a heightened risk of type 2 diabetes, food sensitivities, allergies, cancer, and heart failure.

Discover below the ten processed foods you should avoid or never eat, along with the reasons why! By understanding the recognized dangers of these ultra-processed foods—packed with additives, preservatives, and excessive sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats—you’ll make informed choices. Many households consume these foods daily.

1: Breakfast cereals, despite their popularity, pose significant health risks and offer minimal nutritional value. They often contain high amounts of sugar, which is linked to obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Many cereals also include artificial dyes and flavours derived from petroleum, such as Red #40, Blue #1, and Yellow #6, which have been associated with hyperactivity in children. Removing artificial colours from the diet has shown improvements in children with ADHD.

  • Additionally, many breakfast cereals contain dangerous preservatives like BHA and BHT, chemicals that mimic oestrogen in the body, potentially disrupting hormone balance and leading to weight gain and fertility issues. Furthermore, as most breakfast cereals are high on the glycaemic index, they can cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels, which may exacerbate mood disorders, including anxiety and depression.

2: Dairy: Dairy consumption can pose risks to your health due to the presence of chemicals and additives in many dairy products. Cheese and milk, which constitute a significant portion of dairy intake, are often laden with these substances. These additives have been associated with health risks and the trigger of allergic reactions.

3: Canned meals and vegetables – The processing of canned foods results in the loss of essential water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C and B. Additionally, there are health risks associated with BPA: many cans contain BPA (bisphenol A), a chemical that may disrupt hormones and potentially increase the risk of high blood pressure, cancer, and behavioural issues. Bacterial Risk: Although uncommon, improperly processed canned foods can harbour dangerous bacteria like Clostridium botulinum.

4: Baked Goods: Commercial produced Bread, Cakes, Biscuits, Lollies are loaded with added sugars, salt and unhealthy fats. You can either eliminate these or bake your own bread, cakes and biscuits from oat, almond or rice flour, using honey or fresh fruit instead of sugar.

  • Health and Protein Bars – It has been discovered that protein and health bars can pose potential dangers to your health. These bars often contain simple carbohydrates that are loaded with sugar, or artificial sweeteners, colourings, unhealthy fats and salt. While they offer a quick solution for hunger, they are not the best choice for increasing protein intake or as a healthy snack to boost energy levels. Instead opt for whole foods like eggs, avocado, fresh fruit, yogurt, fish, lentils, meat, tofu, root vegetables, nuts, and seeds. These options provide healthier sources of protein and snacks to sustain energy and satisfy hunger for longer periods of time.
  • Dried Fruit & Processed Fruit Snacks. Once again often loaded with saturated fats, high in sugar and salt. Leading to health problems as mentioned heart, circulation, diabetes as well as malnutrition and obesity.
  • Flavoured Nuts: No matter whether they are maple-flavoured, soy sauce- or wasabi-dusted, coated in toffee.  Flavoured nuts are packed with added salt and sugar. As we have mentioned both of these having a detrimental effect on your health. Leading to unnecessary weight gain, diabetes, heart problems and high blood pressure.
  • Fruit Balls & Questionable Natural Lollies: These are an enemy to both your teeth, blood flow and waistline.  Fruit snacks may be the most inaccurate labelled food. The majority of these snacks are high in fructose that of corn syrup and cane sugar. Once again leading to health problems of weight gain, diabetes, circulatory and heart problems. Because of the high sugar content and gelatinous ingredients, they stick to your teeth, providing an ideal environment for bacteria to create cavities.
  • Microwave Popcorn: Popcorn is a great as a snack food when cooked in the traditional sense in a saucepan with a little olive oil and from non-processed popcorn. Then for flavour adding just some coconut oil and going easy on the salt if at all. However, what is bad about microwave popcorn is in the bag. Perfluoroalkyls are just one class of chemical found in microwave popcorn bags. Studies have been found to link perfluoroalkyls with health problems as diverse as kidney disease and poor semen quality.

6: Processed meat products Found in the deli or fridge section, such as hot dogs, sausages, mince, bacon, ham, beef, turkey. These foods have high levels of sodium are linked high blood pressure and heart disease. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg. One of the reasons that bacon taste so good, is that it is full of saturated fat. Saturated fat another direct link to heart disease and obesity.

  • The additional danger with bacon and also other processed cold meats is the number of preservatives in these products. These preservatives are linked to many health concerns such as ADD, ADHD, Headaches, Lack of Concentration and Cancer. Opt for lean cuts of fresh meat, free range chicken breast, or fish.

7: Read to Go Meals: That are canned, packaged, or frozen meals that are ready to microwave or just heat. These convenience foods often contain high levels of sodium, unhealthy fats, and preservatives. Consider cooking at home using fresh ingredients.

8: Ramen or Two Minute Noodles: A packet of instant noodles can contain nearly 2,000 milligrams (mg) of sodium, which is 500 mg more than the daily recommended intake. That increases blood pressure, that can lead to a stroke. Yes, even young people can suffer a stroke. Simple carbohydrates make up the majority of the other ingredients, not to mention that these noodles have absolutely no nutritional value. You may also like to check out the quantity of saturated fat in these noodles. It is extremely high.

9: Margarine: Many years ago, margarine was considered a healthy alternative to butter. The truth, however, is that margarine contains a large quantity of trans fats, as well as saturated fats and is now considered a great deal unhealthy compared to butter.

  • Trans fats are responsible for the increase of bad cholesterol, this leading to heart disease and stroke. There is also some concern as to a link between trans fatty acids and cancer. It has been noted that with cancer patients who have eliminated trans and saturated fats from their diet that there has been a higher survival rate

8: Beverages such as cordials, soft drinks, juices, milk especially when canned or long life. (Always check ingredients, and opt for organic and local produce, when it comes to milk and long-life products.)

Not all Processed Foods are Bad for You

Not all processed foods are detrimental to your health. In the 21st century, it’s nearly impossible to completely avoid processed foods. However, understanding which ones are beneficial and which to avoid is crucial. For instance, foods like milk require processing for safety reasons, such as pasteurization to remove harmful bacteria.

Additionally, pressing seeds to make oil and fermenting foods provide variety and enhance digestion. While freezing preserves most vitamins in fruits and vegetables, their nutritional value may differ from fresh counterparts. When opting for preserved foods, choose those without added salt, sugar, artificial sweeteners, additives or preservatives.

Let’s take a Quick look at Fermented Foods

Fermented foods are a hot topic these days with additional health benefits from improved immune function, digestion and prevention of disease. The main key found with the health benefits of fermented foods is their contribution of live microbes – these being good microbes/bacteria to support healthy digestion in your gut. Combined they are known as microbiome.

These all have a link with mental health problems.

  • Fermented Foods to Eat in Moderation or Must be included in your diet!
