Another very strong point to prove that processed food is not bad is the icy vegetables.

Fruits and vegetables juices also very wholesome processed food as all of them are adequate with extra calcium which makes them even more nutritious. The methods used for processing food consist of canning, freezing, refrigeration, dehydration and aseptic process. Let's discuss canning.

Canning is a recipe to hold or process food very effectively. This process is done by first packing the processed food in a airtight jars, bottles and pouches and then heating them in a temperature that have the power to abolish harmful and infectious micro-organisms. Because of problems shown by clostridium botulinum and some other pathogens it is always said that the safest recipe to can any food item is under the conditions of very high heat and pressure. Normally, at the time of canning any processed food the temperature is about 240 to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. The most celebrated canned food products consist of vegetables, meats, sea foods, poultry and some dairy products. The only food items which can be canned without using high pressure and temperature are the food which are high in acidic content for example pickles and some vegetables to which acids can be added.

The history of canning processed food goes back to 1809 when a French confectioner used the first vacuum jar made of glass. After some time glass jars were supplanted by tins and wrought iron canisters [short name cans]. These cans gained instant popularity as these were cheaper, quicker to make and far more flexible and durable than those breakable glass jars. The airtight nature of these cans and tins plays a vital role in retention it bacteria free and food packed inside. Double seem technique is used and the cans containing Double seem are popularly called germ-free cans.

Processed food or so called pre-packed food products are very suitable are even more popular among today's people. If you buy too much of processed food then make sure that you are always choosing the products that consist of less sodium content, no trans-fat at all, more portion of whole grains and most importantly less calories. always look at the serving size also and prefer eating this processed food with fresh made salads, some whole grain bread and lots of water.
