THE SECRETS OF PACKED FOOD

Are you aware of some of these nasty facts that the commercial and packaged food hide within them.

The most shocking of all facts is that these ingredients are allowed by the FDA also known as the Food and Drug Administration.

1 ) BREAD

The yummy, soft, and spongy bread that we all love to eat in different forms like burger, pizza base, etc. contains L-Cysteine which is an amino acid, used to prolong shelf-life in bread.

It is found in duck and chicken feathers, even in cow horns, but the main ingredient that is used in bread is human hair, which is usually collected from barber shops in china, for easy manufacture. Moreover, that is why it is suggested that a person should buy bread from a local bakery or make bread at home.

2 ) MAC AND CHEESE

Yumm!!! The tasty mac and cheese brings with it the flavours of it’s juicy sauce and overall satisfying taste. However, in this tasty dish there are some fragmented facts.

The FDA allows up to 225 insect fragments per 225 grams of macaroni along with 4.5 rodent hairs.

3) PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE

Peanut butter is not at all different from the dishes above, as it also has it’s own surprises.

The FDA has allowed an average of one or more rodent hairs and 30 insect fragments for every 100 grams.

Chocolate is also not much different as it also has roaches which many people suggest have been added as they provide a high protein diet, which is good. However there is also one reason that is, the chocolates are manufactured at places where there are an uncontrollable amount of cockroaches, which causes them to fall into the chocolate during production and be grinded into small particles.

4 ) KETCHUP

the red and thick ketchup is loved by many of us, is also loved by fruit flies as they fly onto the tomatoes and lay their eggs. Therefore, the FDA has allowed upto only 15 eggs of fruit flies. Just to provide you some more information I would also like to say that the FDA allows no more than one or more maggots in ketchup.

5 ) GELATIN

I would like to end with the last topic being Gelatin which is present in gummy bears and many other gummy foods. Gelatin is a protein which is obtained by boiling skin, tendons ( which connects muscle to bone ), ligaments or bones with water.

This is usually obtained from cows or pigs. FDA has until now not specifically approved or denied gelatine but has called it safe to consume as it is not known if Gelatine contains BSE or not ( BSE –Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy – disease that is present in cows and affects their brains and usually kills them) which is also known as Mad Cow Disease.

I hope, you do not shy away from eating this food as it is just not possible to avoid so many food items having so many different ingredients. However, what you can do is that you can try to eat food that is made at your home, and after getting to know about the ingredients in bread I am also going to change my bread provider to a local one.
