Nutritionist warns against buying ready-made “homemade” food in stores

Endocrinologist, nutritionist, nutritionist, certified health coach (Health Coach, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, NYC) Anastasia Tarasko said that “homemade” food sold in stores can be dangerous due to poor quality raw materials and inconsistencies the composition of the indicated calorie content and the amount of proteins, fats and carbohydrates (BJU).

In conversation with “Gazeta.Ru” on Friday, March 10, the specialist clarified that in most cases, store-bought “homemade” food is not harmful, but it becomes dangerous if the manufacturer violates the rules for preparing or storing dishes. Under such conditions, dishes or products often become the cause of food poisoning.

According to Tarasco, another problem with ready-made food is that the buyer often does not get what the manufacturer claims. First of all, it concerns the quality and taste properties.

For example, a manufacturer may use greenhouse tomatoes instead of sun-grown tomatoes, or produce margarine instead of butter.

In addition, sellers can save on the quality of products by adding various flavor enhancers, additives or dyes to them, which give the dish a more attractive look. Meanwhile, the dish does not contain useful substances and benefits.

She noted that the calorie content of the dish and the BJU in its composition are also often incorrectly indicated in such products, which is bad for people who monitor weight.

She added that such juices contain only carbohydrates, and there is no vitamin C.
