We all know that fast food is unhealthy; that’s nothing new.

We know it tastes good, it’s not that expensive and you don’t even have to make chaos in your own kitchen.

But it’s also very bad and you never know what you are buying.

Despite all of the many facts about the unhealthy nature of fast food, it’s amazing to know that the consumption of foods from fast food restaurants continues to grow year by year.

Here are fifteen incredibly shocking truths about the production of some of the world’s favorite fast foods.

1. Modified starches help producers save on real food

Any time you buy fruit juices, tomato sauce that is ready-made or fruit-flavored yogurt, you are getting a lot less of the actual fruit and vegetables than you think you are.

In order to save on manufacturing costs, modified starches, along with various food coloring and flavoring agents, are added to these foods to mask the lack of actual fruits and vegetables that are contained within each serving.

It looks right, it tastes right, but actually the content isn’t right.

That’s the tradeoff that you are required to make, but at least now you’re aware of it.

Of course, this is something that’s really hard to avoid because of the fast paced society that we live in.

People are sometimes forced to buy these types of foods because of their convenience alone and of course, buying fresh food and preparing it doesn’t not only take more time, it also costs more money.

But if you have the money and the time, buy fresh and prepare these types of foods on your own. It’s about the only way to avoid modified starches.
