Nutritionists release list of 5 most detrimental foods
Nutritionists have finally come up with a list of five most damaging foodstuffs for humans.
- Sweet carbonated soft drinks. In fact, they are designed to cause thirst instead of quenching it. All of them have huge sugar content; a glass of cola contains an equivalent of five tablespoons of sugar.
- Potato chips are sheer poison, especially those made of potato puree. The chips are basically a mixture of carbohydrates and fat with some artificial food additives thrown in to enhance flavor.
- Sweet candy bars. A high content of sugar combined with various food additives makes this high-calorie food pretty addictive.
- Frankfurters, kielbasa, mortadella, pates and other foodstuffs containing the so-called hidden fat. The foods are disguised as meat yet they are actually made of lard, internal fat and pork skin up to 40% by the weight. A variety of food additives helps do the trick.
- Meats with high fat content, especially when fried.
