What are ultra-processed foods?

According to a report that has been published by Cambridge University Press in February 2019, ultra-processed foods aren’t really food. They are more of a “formulation of food substances that are often modified by different chemical processes and then put together into ready-to-consume hyper-palatable food and drink products that use flavors, colors, emulsifiers, and tons of other cosmetic additives.

Most of them are made and promoted by transnational and other huge corporations. Their ultra-processing makes them also very profitable, extremely appealing, and very unhealthy.”

Ultra-processed foods have a ton of cosmetic additives such as flavors, flavor enhancements, colors, emulsifiers, salts, sweeteners, thickeners, anti-foaming, bulking, even carbonating, foaming, gelling, and glazing agents.
