Anyone who lives in a house will be forced, more or less times during the week, to go to the supermarket to shop. The evolving society has made this practice suitable for anyone. What until a few years ago might have seemed a female job, is now practiced by practically everyone.
Among the shelves you can find managers, housewives, students, retirees, single people or entire families. Thanks to their offer able to satisfy every need and person, supermarkets are among the busiest places that can be found in the city. In these places you can now buy everything, even if in this text the concern is to dwell on food.
We all make this mistake when we go to the supermarket compromising our health
The actions that are carried out are now “national-popular”. Coin in the cart, long shopping list and off to the slalom in the serpentines full of goods. But this is precisely where we all make this mistake without realizing it compromising our health.
Taking the product without knowing how to read the label could also hide some dangers for our body. We all make this mistake when we go to the supermarket compromising our health. It is so important to give the correct food information that there is a real regulation issued by the European Parliament.
Beyond the label, you must also pay attention to foods that contain antibiotics. To learn more about this topic, we recommend reading the article antibiotics in foods, here are the most dangerous ones.
Read, understand, know what you are buying
In most cases it is placed behind the packaging in lowercase characters, the label of the characteristics is a real identity card. In addition to the known indications of the production plants, ingredients or expiration date, we may find some less clear acronyms.
A clear example are additives: all those components that do not have particular nutritional properties but which are used to thicken, color, whiten or enhance the flavor. These are indicated with the letter “E” followed by the code that identifies their function. Particular attention should be paid to the E171 code which identifies titanium dioxide, a whitener. According to experts, the latter would have devastating effects on the intestine.
Every time you go shopping, eggs are among the most popular products in the cart, they too have specific codes that say everything about their origin. From tomorrow, when you take an egg in your hand, the first thing to notice is the first engraved number. The “0” indicates that the egg is organic and that the hens, indoors, have large spaces available. The number “1” means that the animal is in an open area but with less space than the biological ones. We can also find the “2” and “3” where the hen is in sheds without a cage in the first case, while it is closed in the second.
Knowing how to read and understand what the manufacturer indicates in the label of a food helps us to buy what is best for us and for our family. Only in this way could we avoid running into situations that are really unpleasant for our body in the long run.
