Healthy meals on the kids' menu


The suspected health effects of trans-fatty acids have been raised for decades, but have been backed up by a series of scientific evidence since the 1990s. Are you clear when and how much you put in your basket?


It's easy to get bored, so you should be wary of so much food. But unfortunately, the bulky, low-cost food production, long-term storage requirements, and the need for craftsmanship have also led to the invasion of trans-fatty acids. What are you up to? Trans fatty acids are formed during the hydrogenation of vegetable oils, and in small amounts, even when roasting in hot vegetable oils. Foods prepared in this way are longer lasting, do not rancid, crunchier, freeze better, and have a softer texture at room temperature. In other words, the purpose of their use is clearly to increase consumption, since the result is apparently better quality, more attractive, "more perfect", longer-lasting product. The problem is that trans fats clearly increase the risk of heart disease, decrease the "good" and increase the level of "bad" cholesterol, depending on the amount consumed. Also, atherosclerosis is developing. Simply, you have every reason to avoid, in a big way, not only those products that contain trans-fatty acids in excess of the health limits, but also possibly those that are present in detectable quantities.
The big one is not enough
In order to find out the trans fat content of foods, it is not enough to buy and browse the list of ingredients in fine print. Although you may be suspicious of the term "hydrogenated plant genus", you can only quantify it by indirect methods. Pйldбul йs you take print out of Orszбgos Йlelmezйs- йs Tбplбlkozбstudomбnyi Intйzet 2012 oktуber 16 бn frissнtett the kьlцnfйle йlelmiszerek transzzsнrsav-tartalmбrуl szуlу listбjбt, йs mielхtt the gyanъs йlelmiszercsoportokbуl megvбsбrolnбl something ellenхrzцd that is included in it, йs if so, how much йrtйkkel. A bit of a caveat, the hesitant, but as long as we are taking action in Denmark and New York, for example, the use of trans-fatty acids is forbidden, or for very long.
What product groups does it cover?
Long and surprisingly, the line includes: mayonnaise, salad dressings, ice creams, preserves, dairy products, sourdoughs, instant powders, instant wheat pйldбul йtelнzesнtхk, leveskockбk, cheese, butter нzesнtйsы popcorn sуs crackers and chips, cukrбszsьtemйnyek, chocolate lбtszу material kйszьlх йdesipari termйkek zцme, mьzlik, mьzliszeletek, crumpets, йdes йs sуs biscuits nбpolyik, teasьtemйnyek, pйkбruk, lisztkeverйkek certain margarines fast food, with special regard to fried foods. If you usually buy, eat, and even give it to your child every day, you should read through the list carefully before you continue!
What is the solution?
First, read through the list thoroughly. You will find that it contains almost everything that is invisible, and it does not contain any unwanted food. I would highlight some that are often given to children, even small children, as a reward wall or as a healthy dessert, as is the case with salmon sugar, although the trans-acid content of most of the products tested is extremely high. But here's what many seem to be healthy, so a group of sweet cereal bars, some of which contain a staggering amount of fat! Then there are the "figurative chocolates" in heaps at Easter, Mikulášskor, these extra flavors do not even remember the real chocolate, but they are rich in sugar and astringent trans acids. Just think, why would you spend money on something like this? As a general rule of thumb, you should not taste any of the oatmeal-flavored, chocolate-coated turmeric, chestnuts, chestnuts, The most popular chocolate hazelnut chips, according to the most recent studies, do not contain trans fatty acids, but only more traces of peanuts. Make it more like homemade peanuts, good quality melted chocolate bars and couscous! When you think about it, you usually do best by limiting the consumption of these foods to a minimum, but when you are still on the go, prepare them from healthy, controlled ingredients. You won't end up paying more for it!
The Hungarian Food Law
If you read the law's text, it turns out that the packaging of the products should essentially contain the trans fatty acid content, as the packaging must call attention to the health constituents. But at the moment, it doesn't work out.
