Health experts advise us not to to eat too much instant food mainly because of the all the preservatives present on them.
I remember one e-mail I read about the risk of eating too much instant noodles. But being busy at work, it really helps to have something instant on my cupboard. There were times when I have to do overtime at work, which left me no time to cook a real meal. So I have no choice but to eat instant food, instead of going to bed with an empty stomach and risk having some gastrointestinal related illness. This is why I always have Lucky Me Instant Pancit Canton on my cupboard. This is what I eat whenever I am in a hurry to cook. In less than 10 minutes, I can eat something to appease my hunger.
For all those who do not know, pancit is a Filipino dish which consists of noodles stir-fried with vegetables and soy sauce, while canton is a type of noodles. Thus, Lucky Me came up with its own version of “pancit canton”. Lucky Me Instant Pancit Canton has many variants, but I like the Chilimansi flavor the best – a combination of chili and kalamansi (small lemon). I especially like its chili taste with a bit of the sourness of the lemon. A glass of soda completes my meal. You can read on Lucky Me Instant Pancit Canton’s packaging that it contains no artificial ood preservatives. I am not sure about this one, but regardless if this is true or not, I still am eating this stuff because I like its taste. And besides, I don’t eat it often enough for me to risk my health with it – i hope! But I am sure those health conscious people won’t agree with me. Natural and Artificial… What’s the diff? There are 2 types of preservatives – natural and artificial. The main difference between the two is that the previous is found in and made by nature, while the latter is synthetically derived or man-made.
There are many natural preservatives, such as salt, vinegar, sugar, which have been used to preserve meat and vegetables. Artificial preservatives such as sulfites help prevent color changes in fruits and vegetables and inhibit bacterial growth in wine, fermented foods, some snack foods and baked goods. Sulfites also have antioxidant properties. Other examples of natural and artificial preservatives: Natural Preservatives Acetates Celery juice Citrates Citric Acid Mixed Tocopherols Ascorbic Acid Malic Acid Artificial Preservatives Benzoates BHA/BHT EDTA Nitrates/Nitrites Proprionates
