Processing foods enhances their colour, increases their shelf life and makes them tastier, making them seem like a good choice. But they are not! This alteration of foods also increases their salt, sugar and fat content and other additions.

The degree of convenience combined with a lack of time in our busy lives, can lead us to look for quick options to put on our dining table.

We now know that our gut health depends on the foods that we eat.

Ingesting low nutritional density foods, unbalances the functioning of our digestive systems, bringing health implications, such as:

  • Abdominal bloating or discomfort;
  • Increased risk of developing irritable bowel syndrome;
  • Acid reflux
  • Increase in abdominal fat
  • Increased risks of diabetes, hypertension and coronary heart disease
  • Negative influence on the quality of your sleep;
  • Breakdown of immune function
  • Increased risk of dementia

We challenge you to read the labels of the food you buy. Avoid high level of fat, salt, sugars and artificial food additives.
