Some Common Misconceptions about Food


Chemical free food-WOW! That sounds great and must be pretty nutritious and healthy. OKAY!!!!

Chemical free food-WOW! That sounds great and must be pretty nutritious and healthy. OKAY!!!! Let us guess what this food stuff might be: Glutamate, Leucine, Aspartate, Histidine, Leucine, Lysine, Glucose, Fructose, Maltose, Water, Potassium, Calcium, Starch, Capric Acid, Oleic Acid, Linolenic Acid, Pyridoxal Phosphate, Palmitic Acid, Lauric Acid, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Sulphur, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Proline, Isoleucine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Ethyl Hexanoate, Ethyl Pentanoate, E300, E 306 and many more. It’s a Banana!!!! Yes, it is a Banana. So technically nothing in nature is chemical free, even plane water is H2O. This also burst the popular myth which says: “If you can’t pronounce a food ingredient don’t eat it.” Also, another popular myth, this time around bananas only: “They are rich in potassium” but actually per 100grams serving of raw banana provides with only 8% of daily nutritional requirement of potassium whereas baked potatoes without skin, processed tomato sauces, cooked soya beans andraw spinach are some food stuff that are way more richer in potassium as compared to our raw banana. Another myth is lesser the chemicals in a food product the better it is. Let’s take another set of food ingredients and try guessing what it is: Sucrose, Paprika, Lucein, Curcumin, Chlorophynin, Sodium Bicarbonate, Stearic Acid, Malic Acid, Magnesium Carbonate, Anthocyanin, Magnesium Stearate and just few more. And we are taking about? A Heart Candy Clearly Banana turns out to be a winner here. So, number of chemicals constituents and type always does not give us the complete picture of the food item in question. So, as such a more detailed analysis and clear perspective is required to tease apart the good and bad for us when it comes to our food. And that’s precisely the reason for a professional and trained eye to help us pick and put things on our platter: the so-called Nutritionist, Dieticians and Nutrition experts.
