Many of the food borne diseases are caused by having those non-hygienic processed food with chemicals and other components added to keep it fresh artificially. However, many of us are not quite educated to select appropriate processed food by knowing their manufacturing date, Usage time, method and nutritional values, etc. If you compare any processed food with some organic and raw food, you may come to know the nutritional value differences and also differences in its freshness. Food processing includes heating, chopping, filtering, chemical additions, etc. Processed food also needs careful handling and appropriate packing. Even a small leak on the vacuum packed food packet can be dangerous for your health. The nutrients lost in this process depend on its method of processing.
