Food through the "hard" process of processing makes nutrition – easy fat – BBC Thailand
The results of the first experiment confirmed this Specially prepared and processed food Ultra-processed food makes consumers feel more appetizing. And finally they eat more than 500 calories per day
The research team at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has revealed that 20 volunteers have been tested for 1 month feeding behavior in the lab.
Such volunteers will be divided into 2 groups: one group will eat food that has been redesigned. While the other group will only eat natural foods that are not processed
The two groups of volunteers switched to the type of food they had eaten in 2 weeks, with the two foods used in the experiment being studied. With the same tasty taste With the same amount of starch, sugar, fat and fiber
Then the research team found this During volunteers eat food that has been specially processed They tend to eat more. Consuming more food on average, up to 508 calories a day and having an average weight of about 1 kg
Dr. Kevin Hall, head of the research team, said – "This is the first experiment to prove that processed foods and obesity are linked. This indicates that this type of food can contribute to obesity among the majority of the population.
Previously, there have been studies showing that obesity is "widespread" among Americans. Caused by eating too much food, only about 200-300 calories a day
Dr. Hall said the cause of processed foods had a negative effect on health. It may be because it affects the hormones that control appetite. "When people eat natural foods that are rarely processed through hormones, PYY, which suppresses appetite, will increase. Grille that causes hunger reduction Even if you eat food that provides less energy
