Does Food With No Preservatives Spoil Faster?
Did you know that humans have been preserving foods since ancient times? The earliest record of food preservation practices dates back to ancient Egypt where grains were dried and stored in sealed silos.
Even further back in time dating to 6,000 BC, people around the world had developed techniques for drying and smoking foods. Today, however, we’re more familiar with chemical preservation, which is where specific ingredients are added to foods and packaging to ensure freshness.
At Baked Smart Cookie, our cookies are made without artificial preservatives. We believe in delivering wholesomeness by combining fruits, vegetables, and healthy nutrition. Let’s take a closer look at what exactly current preservatives are and how they can impact your health.
Preservatives and Your Health
On a deeper level, when food lacks preservatives--or preservation techniques aren't used--oxidation can occur, creating an enticing treat for many different types of microorganisms. At the same time, current chemical preservatives have raised a lot of concerns regarding consumption.
Many people wonder whether or not preservatives are good for their health. Even though through the years, preservatives have aided in keeping food fresh, there is research that shows that preservatives may have negative effects on our health.
This is a growing concern for many, understandably. By being mindful of the quality of the food you and your family consume, you can minimize the effects of preservatives on your health.
