Home made food versus supermarket food

Arutz 2 continues investigating Israeli food, and this time they focus on nutrition.

You can watch the video here.

To summarize their main points:

  • Most people buy yogurt for the protein and low fat.  However, if you check the nutritional information, even the “lightly sweetened’ yogurts have 4-5 times more carbohydrates than protein.
  • Hummus in the supermarket has preservatives and other chemicals plus a considerable amount of fat.  Look for ingredients such as vegetable oil and stay away.  Fresh hummus is relatively low in fat.
  • It is hard to tell what the chemicals are that are in your food because they are listed with an E number. [here is a link to a list of E numbers]
  • Be careful when purchasing processed meats and spice mixes, which are extremely high in salt content.
  • They took some of the most popular sandwiches that kids take to school and left them in a backpack in a laboratory for 6 hours.  They were still safe to eat!
  • Cereal may be the only source of fiber for your children, so make sure it has as much as possible.  Don’t rely on it for vitamins and minerals, though- get them naturally from fruits and vegetables.

The moral of this story?  Eat as much home-cooked food as you can. Yogurt and hummus are easy to make and much healthier than their store-bought versions.
