Put almost everything in a beautiful package and someone will buy it. We often don’t think about what we take from supermarket shelves, but it can cause health risks.

Bright Side wants to tell you which products you should never drink and why.

Ready-to-eat salad

6 Products You’d Better Avoid in Supermarkets

Bacteriologists warn that the most dangerous food in a supermarket is cut and packaged salad. Although the packaging may say it’s “ready to eat,” it can still harbor harmful bacteria that induce intestinal disease.

They come out of the ground and cannot be eradicated because the salad is not thermally processed. To be safe, always wash the vegetables you buy well.

The World Health Organization has admitted that hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meat products cause cancer.

The nitrites contained in these foods are transformed into nitrosamines, potent carcinogens, in the intestines.

Smoked meat can also contain benzopyrene, another carcinogen. It is safer to buy a good piece of meat, cook it yourself, and eat it with sandwiches or as a snack.

Bottled Green Tea

A recent study showed that a bottled beverage called green tea actually has nothing in common with it. Green tea is famous for its antioxidant properties; Now imagine that a real cup of tea contains as many antioxidants as 20 bottles of that beverage.

It is mainly made up of water and sugar, which is more abundant here than soft drinks. Better to make a real tea and take it away.

Red fruit rolls and sweet yogurts may look good, but what they contain are fruit fillings that are easy to produce and sell.

Preservatives, flavorings, and thickeners keep them from spoiling and mixing with the dough, and they contain few precious fruits.

The manufacturers even honestly write in the content that there is around 20-40% fruit in these fillings. Better to have a handful of fresh fruit for breakfast.

Mayo is traditionally made up of eggs, vinegar, vegetable oil, and spices. The things we buy in stores also have preservatives, food coloring, and stabilizers.

The “light” mayonnaise contains less fat (35% instead of 50%), but to preserve its flavor and thickness, starch and sugar are added.

The resulting calories are almost similar to regular mayonnaise. Anyway, this sauce is not healthy, but if you like it, it is better to prepare it at home.
