The long-term health damage caused by processed and industrialized diets is enormous and far beyond the public's awareness.

Processed food.

Unsurprisingly, industrialized and processed foods have no uniform and precise definition or criteria. The ambiguity mainly serves the food industry.

Food that meets one or more of the following criteria may be considered processed or industrialized food. (Rank is a separate exam.)

  1. After a deep freeze, raw or ready-to-eat food, baking, frying, steaming, or heating over high heat.
    1. The primary test is the degree of damage caused to each product's nutrients individually during freezing, cooling, or heating to high heat. We are taking into account the shelf life of the product.
  2. In their final serving form, food and beverages contain substances that are not wholly natural, such as artificial sweeteners, artificial emulsifiers, solidified vegetable oils, trans fats, artificial flavors, colorants, preservatives, and more.
  3. Animal and plant nutrients are grown under conditions that are not optimal. Such as:
    1. Animal foods that have received growth hormones, antibiotics, and foods that target unnatural obesity for the specific animal. Various unneeded chemicals.
    2. Plant foods are grown under conditions that impair product quality. Such food has undergone chemical spraying or harmful biological treatment, growing produce in untreated wastewater and poor soil unsuitable for the specific crop.
  4. Food packed in tin cans (leaking), smoked food. (Smoking may contain unhealthy chemicals.)


Under the strict definitions I have presented - most of the foods we eat are processed and industrialized to one degree or another. Unfortunately, this is indeed the reality, but at the moment, in the absence of objective indicators, it isn't easy to quantify these essential indicators.
