Bacteria Eating Food – The Truth

food and bacteria

A lot of the food that’s available commercially is loaded with preservatives and additives. Since people are always on a rush (hardly anyone has the time to cook meals at home!), they resort to fast foods and instant meals. And this is not a good news, where health is concerned.

Preservatives refer to the chemicals added into processed foods to prevent spoilage. This makes the food’s shelf life longer. A can of corned beef could last for months or even years, whereas regular beef would only take a few days before it goes into decomposition process. The longer the shelf life, the more profitable a food product is.

There are various types of preservatives. Some of the most commonly used is sodium benzoate, benzoic acid, sulfites, sodium nitrate and sulfur dioxide. Fast foods sell items that contain preservatives. On top of the list are burgers and fries. Same is true for processed deli meats like bacon, sausage, hot dog and luncheon meats.

So what are you going to do? As much as possible, avoid eating in fast foods, and buying processed food items. Natural homemade food is healthier and safer. If you’re worried about the time and effort it takes to cook homemade meals, why don’t you consider cooking in bulk and storing in the freezer? A whole day of cooking can provide 30 days of healthy food that don’t have any harmful preservatives.
