Five foods considered healthy but are actually harmful

Many people value a healthy and balanced diet. However, food products often sold to us as healthy, in fact, are not, writes the online publication MedikForum.
Five foods considered healthy but are actually harmful

Dry breakfast cereals

There is a big misconception that muesli is good for health. “Many ready-made products that are offered in the form of muesli are real sugar bombs,” says nutritionist Igor Strokov.

Energy snack bars

According to the manufacturers, energy snack bars should give energy quickly and easily. But even a glance at the length of the ingredient list suggests that it may not be healthy. Bars often contain many unhealthy artificial ingredients.

Ready-made cocktails

Fruits certainly contain many important vitamins. However, cheap ready-made smoothies from the supermarket are especially high in sugar. Even a small bottle often exceeds the recommended daily allowance.

Couscous

Many people do not know that couscous is not a nutrient-rich grain on its own. Couscous grains are just as good or bad as commercial pasta. “Because both products are made from grated durum wheat,” the source says.

Meat analog

Many vegan or vegetarian products intended as meat alternatives contain too much salt or flavor enhancers. “If you want to eat healthy food, you should rely on natural and fresh ingredients and avoid ready-made products whenever possible,” concluded Igor Strokov.
