We need to do a significant check on the geographical environment from where our home-based food come. Often, in supermarkets, low prices on the food can attract us to buy them, but that doesn’t always have to be the case.
Here are some types of foods you should avoid from China:
- Plastic rice
You have to be careful not to buy this type of plastic rice because the authorities in China are seizing it because it is mixed with potatoes, sweet potatoes and industrial resin. This type of rice is very difficult to digest in our body and contributes to difficulties. Be careful
In 2015, America imported $ 138 million in garlic under the label ‘Organic’. Garlic is considered one of the healthiest herbs on the planet. Unfortunately, garlic from China is coated with pesticides like methyl bromide. It would be wise to buy the garlic grown elsewhere.
Salt is very important when we’re preparing some kind of food. Don’t let the sodium used in foodstuffs in China end up in your stomach. Buy Himalayan sea salt or rose salt.
What is processed at the factory, all foods are not healthy, and on the other hand that kind of process is not humane. We all know that bird flu was spread in poultry centers. Be aware.
- Apple juice
Recently, our government in America has imposed restrictions on apple imports into the country from China. Our country has enough apples to make juice for them and to sell also. A few years ago an antifreeze was found in juice from China. That problem has been resolved, but still the soil in the cinema remains the biggest problem because it is contaminated.
We must be careful, when we want to buy fish from the supermarkets, as it is contaminated with mercury and lead and poses a significant danger, especially for pregnant women.
More than a third of processed mushrooms in the United States come from China. Mushrooms are difficult to recognize, because they are repackaged and added with sulfur dioside and formaldehyde to make them look fresh.
- Organic food
The European Union and the United States have criteria and standards regarding organic food, which must pass certain requirements. There are contracts between inspectors and farmers (search for more on the web) to avoid food inspections. Foods originating in China as a result of ‘organic’ stamping are not always accurate.
- Green Peas
Peas from China should be avoided because they contain soybeans, chemicals such as metabisulfur and green color.
