OK - I just cooked a pre-marinated teriyaki pork tenderloin. This is more about the preservatives but it's still what I call processed because of it - I cannot eat it!!!!!!! Those flavor is so strong and so offensive. I thought I could save a bit of time but it really does pay to mix things up yourself and marinate.

We use a few processed foods, kept on hand for emergencies, mostly. I take the position if something is added to, or taken away, I try to limit the amount I use. I do buy dry pasta, fresh in the dairy case pasta, etc.

I know what you mean...pre-made marinades are always WAY too salty...especially the kinds that come in a jar (think Emerel's marinades). I've always wondered why they put so much unneccesary salt in there..

Processed food is pretty much anything that is bad for you and not in its original form.

So you believe all processed food is bad for you and by deduction, no processed food can be healthful?

Some can be OK like cereal but what else do you call it refined food?

I'm not taking issue with what it's called.

My comment related to your statement that, "Processed food is pretty much anything that is bad for you"

I dont know so why dont you tell me.I have an idea in my mind that its stuff that has been changed by adding alot of additives,sodium,preservatives artificial flavors,coloring etc and basically removing the original nutritions the original food had in the first place. Thats the best I can come up with.

I just think it's too broad a statement.

Frozen vegetables are processed foods, as are canned tomato, all dairy products you buy in the supermarket.

Baby food is processed and the only things in the container are the vegetable, fruit or meat and water.

Unless it's a fresh fruit or vegetable, it's processed to a greater or lesser extent. I don't believe all processed foods are bad stuff but agree that some are. I stay away from highly processed foods that have a lot of additives to make it/keep it edible.

Does it get any more processed than this:



They even take the extra step to assure you that it is indeed a "Food Product"!
