The bane of a civilized nation is their access to processed foods, and though many understand there are components within these preservative rich and taste enhancing products that would make them cringe should they know more, the culture has kept an open secret concerning the processing of foods. Unfortunately, these processes also lead to ailments of obesity, diabetes, and unhealthy side effects that are seen as a necessary side effect in order to increase purchasing power in accessibility. Knowledge of product creation can go far in reducing consumer dependence, and it simply begins with an education into the value these foods bring to the table. As a spoiler, it’s not much.

Grain Production in Processing

Grains move through a process called extrusion, where the meal is processed first under high heat in order to be treated for processing. This extrusion actually removes much of the nutritional value of the grains, requiring additives to be placed back into the product in order to give it some nutritional value. Fatty acids are destroyed, which are inherent in naturally produced grain products, increasing the health benefits as well as nutritional value. The extrusion removes these as well.

Extrusion and other processed foods procedures are completed in the name of profit, where supply and demand is overreached in order to place an inferior product on the shelves for longer periods of time, which costs the manufacturer less money, increasing revenue. The simplicity, economic value, and storage desires of many people make this process profitable, while doing little in the way of improving health and lifestyle.

Manufacturing Wiggle Room

Cleanliness has always been a concern for the FDA in order to protect consumers, but in bids to lower costs associated with sanitation, companies vied to regulate acceptable amounts of foreign matter in the process that they claim are unavoidable in the manufacturing process. Plants extruding foods for commercial and retail production have certain defined limits of the amount of chemicals and ‘other’ inadvertent additives that can be present in processed foods. One of the most striking requirements is the level of rat feces that can be present. A logical person would declare that the acceptable amount is 0, but this is not the case. Rest assured, no matter what processed food you are eating, there is a level of the ‘stuff’ in your meal.
