4 Shocking Facts About Food

Published

on

Food is superrrr important (obviously) and in addition to its necessity for our bodily needs, some of us are actually crazy and very passionate about food. So as a tribute to that, we have come to you today with some SHOCKING facts about food!

  1. It’s legal to have hair or bugs in food. In the United States, the FDA passed regulations that state that “natural defects” in certain food products are allowed to have a specific amount of insects or rodent hair to be present in food. An example is canned mushrooms are allowed to contain up to 20 maggots to pass inspection. Eww!

  2. Decaf coffee is not 100% decaf. Most decaffeinated coffee is not completely caffeine free, as it contains small amounts of caffeine. For example, a decaf latte can have up to as much caffeine as in one can of cola. A decaf espresso can have up to 16 milligrams of caffeine.

  3. Cooked vegetables are sometimes more nutritious than raw ones. The amount of nutrition varies between the type of vegetable and how it is cooked. Boiling carrots provides more nutrients than raw carrots as boiling carrots releases the amount of antioxidants in the vegetable for consumption. However, cooking carrots can lower other compounds.

  4. Coconut oil is EXTREMELY powerful. One of the most healthful and powerful foods is coconut oil. It’s a healthy fat that can boost immunity, aid in heart health, and regulate metabolism. Numerous benefits are in coconut oil, and it can also be used in skin care. Coconut oil contains antioxidant properties that are antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and antibacterial.
