Processing methods are not visible and readily known to consumers. As an example, many people are unaware that most non-organic baby carrots are bleached for long shelf-life (not listed on the ingredients). Salt is often bleached and heated to high temperatures which remove essential minerals we need.
Processing of dairy, wheat, grains are other examples that strip nutrients from our food.
What other processing methods do we need to be aware of?
