Processed Food

Processes food is food that has been changed from its original form. Any food that’s been changed from its natural state is considered to be processes. Foods are either processed for convenience or safety. Food processing methods are: canning, dehydrating, refrigerating, freezing, and aseptic processing.

Processed food ranges are from minimal to heavy.

  • Minimal processed foods are usually pre-prepped for convenience. For example, cut vegetables and roasted nuts.
  • Foods at their peak processed to keep their nutritional quality and freshness. For example, canned beans, canned tuna, frozen fruit and vegetables, and tomatoes.
  • Foods with artificial flavors and texture. For example, sweeteners, colors and preservatives, salad dressing, and yogurt.
  • Ready-to-eat foods are heavy processed. For example, crackers, lunch meat, and deli meat.
  • Frozen or pre-made foods are the most heavily processed. For example, frozen pizza and microwaveable dinners.

High doses of vitamin B3 (niacin) may also combat hard-to-treat super-bugs, including antibiotic-resistance staph infections. The research showed high doses of the vitamin boosted the immune system 1,000 fold, effectively killing off the harmful bugs.
