  • Compliments of Vitamins & Minerals
    The micronutrients (Vitamins/Minerals) play an important role by ensuring proper functioning of cells and tissues. 
     
    Each vitamin and trace mineral play a specific role in the body. For example,  Vitamin C acts as antioxidant protecting cells from environmental damage, healing wounds and maintaining connective tissue whereas minerals like sodium, potassium and chloride function as electrolytes that assist in communication between cells necessary for nerve impulses and muscle contraction. 
     
    Some products mimic the nature by adding artificial vitamins or minerals  which have an identical form and function to those found in nature, but they are manufactured synthetically to meet extremely high standards of processed products.
  • What's in the flavour?
    Flavour in most of the packaged food is due the flavouring substances added to it.

    Flavouring Substances are added to Food products either to restore the flavour it would have lost during processing e.g. juices or to add a new desired flavour e.g. in case of biscuits, vanilla flavour may be added to otherwise tasteless food product.

    You must be wondering why does a juice require natural flavouring substances to be added! The answer is that packaged juice is not made the same way as you make in your house. It goes through processing to ensure longer shelf life and in the bargain loses flavour as well some vitamin and mineral. Flavouring substances are added to not only get the flavour back but also to ensure that same flavour in all packs.

    Read this blog to find more about different flavouring substances.
  • Consuming Empty Calories
    The Nutritional Science defines Empty Calorie foods as foods that provide calories through either Fats or Carbohydrates. 
     
    When it comes to high sugar foods like fruit juices, carbonated beverages, jams, marmalades, syrups, an empty calorie product is also referred to as energy dense as all the calories are from carbohydrates which are easily digested, thereby providing instant energy.
     
    However, if you do not utilise this energy by engaging in physical activity, it will be converted to fat and add to your waistline.
     
    The major disadvantage of frequently consuming empty-calorie foods is that it provides only energy without providing other nutrients required by the body.
  • Highly Processed!
    Additives are added to the packaged foods for different reasons varying from increasing shelf life, to provide flavour and texture, increasing nutrition quality or required to manufacture some types of food. 

    One of the ways to determine the degree of Processing is the number of additives you find in the ingredient list. The higher the number of additives greater is the degree of processing. Additives can be identified by looking for ingredients that begin with 'E' and have a number in them. 

    It is generally recommended that food that is closer to nature is better hence it is better to choose food products with lesser number of additives.
  • Loaded with Sugar

    Each serving of the product has at least 1 teaspoon (5g) of sugar in it which makes it a sugar rich product.

    One of the immediate side effects of high sugar intake is increase in fat deposits in the body which may increase your risk for obesity,diabetes and a host of other conditions.

    Also, some studies suggest that its not FAT but sugar that is the cause for excess weight gain. Hence, best to avoid.
