12. Wheat Bread
Don’t pick out any wheat bread unless it says 100% whole wheat on the label, because these supposedly healthy wheat breads pack up nothing more than waist-thickening refined white flour and heaps of sugar. Several loaves, such as Bimbo Bakery’s “Whole Grain” loaf, even pack up tiny amounts of actual whole grains blended with unhealthy refined flour. A two-slice serving of this unhealthy bread contains a shocking 2 grams of sugar.
Manufacturers actually increase the quantities of added sugar in breads created with whole grains just to provide customers the sweet tinge of white bread, alongside the supposed healthy claim of consuming whole grains. If you want to add healthy carbs to your daily diet, pick out a label that says 100% whole wheat flour listed down as the first ingredient.
13. Food Items Coated with Artificial Chocolate
Treats prepared with artificial chocolate pack up offensively damaging ingredients such as polysorbate 6 and polyxyethylene – (20)-sorbitan monostearate, a prominently used emulsifier in the food industry. Artificial chocolate is created with petroleum, corn and palm oil, and it is used in several bakery items and baked treats instead of dairy products.
Research reveals that such ingredients are prevalently contaminated by 1.4 dioxane, a chemical that has been scientifically associated with an increase in the risk factors of cancer. Why not coat your food items with decadent dark chocolate instead? It will invigorate your taste buds and brim you up with antioxidants.
Most popular packaged pickle brands, like Vlasic Dill Kosher Pickles, add potentially toxic yellow dyes into their pickle jars, and considering the fact that cucumbers are naturally green, it is hard to understand the need for this unhealthy addition. These pickle brands use offensive ingredients, such as sodium benzoate, polysorbate 80 and yellow 5.
Research reveals that polysorbate 80, a prominent emulsifier that is also used in diet ice creams, has been increasingly associated with increased risk factors of cancer. Moreover, several pickle jars are brimming with another hazardous ingredient, sodium benzoate, which has been scientifically proven damaging to the mitochondria, which is titled as the ‘power station’ of our cells.
Pick out a jar Woodstock Farms Organic Baby Kosher Dill Pickles, which provide the flavourful taste and nutritional value of healthy pickles without damaging additives and preservatives.
