The Effects of Fast/Processed Food

  1. 1. The effects of processed food<br />“Food has changed more in the last 50 years than in the last 10,000.”*<br />*Quote taken from the opening scene of Food Inc.<br />
  2. 2. Do you know what you are actually eating?<br />What is more important than what you put in your body?<br />Unhealthy, “fake” food is cheaper, and higher in calories.<br />Despite their willingness to splurge in other areas, Americans seem too look for quantity, rather than quality, in their food.<br />
  3. 3. The aroma of food can be responsible for as much as 90% of its flavor<br />“Flavor” is primarily the smell of gases being released by the chemicals you have put in your mouth.<br />
  4. 4. International Flavors & fragrances (iff)<br />
  5. 5. International Flavors & fragrances (iff)<br />Flavor/Taste<br />Fragrance/Aroma<br />
  6. 6. Do you know what you are eating?<br />Something as seemingly innocent as a strawberry shake contains “artificial strawberry flavor” as this “counts” as one ingredient. People have no idea what that is actually made of. “Natural” is very misleading…<br />
  7. 7. Artificial Strawberry Flavor<br />Amyl acetate<br />Amyl butyrate<br />Amyl valerate<br />Anethol<br />Anisyl formate<br />Benzyl acetate<br />Benzyl isobutyrate<br />Butyric acid<br />Cinnamyl isobutyrate<br />Cinnamyl valerate<br />Cognac essential oil<br />Diacetyl<br />Dipropyl ketone<br />Ethyl acetate<br />Ethyl amylketone<br />Ethyl butyrate<br />Ethyl cinnamate<br />Ethyl heptanoate<br />Ethyl heptylate<br />Ethyl lactate<br />Ethyl methlyphenylglycidate<br />Ethyl nitrate<br />Ethyl propionate<br />Continued…<br />
  8. 8. Strawberry??<br />Ethyl valerate<br />Heliotropin<br />Hydroxyphenyl-2-butanone<br />Isobutyl anthranilate<br />Isobutyl butyrate<br />Lemon essential oil<br />Malrol<br />methylacetophenone<br />Methyl anthranilate<br />Methyl benzoate<br />Methyl cinnamate<br />Methyl heptine- carbonate<br />Methyl naphthyl ketone<br />Methyl salicylate<br />Mint essential oil<br />Neroli sesential oil<br />Nerolin<br />Neryl isobutyrate<br />Orris butter<br />Phenethyl alcohol<br />Rose<br />Rum ether<br />Y-undecalactone<br />Vanillin<br />Solvent<br />
  9. 9. Average fast food meal<br />1200-1700 calories<br />
  10. 10. OBESITY<br />62% of Americans are either overweight or obese.<br />This is the first generation of children who have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.<br />45% of school age children will be insulin dependant within ten years.<br />
  11. 11. Healh effects of obesity<br />Clogged arteries<br />High blood pressure<br />Heart Disease<br />Cancer<br />Gall Bladder Disease<br />Diabetes<br />
  12. 12. Fossil fuels<br />It takes 10 calories of fossil fuel to produce 1 calorie of processed food.<br />20% of the fossil fuel we burn is burned to process food. This is the equivalent of what we use for personal transportation.<br />
  13. 13. ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECT OF OBESITY<br />“For every extra pound of weight that the average American gains, we are using slightly over 39 million additional gallons of fuel.”<br />Dr. Sheldon Jacobson<br />University of Illinois<br />
  14. 14. Oil consumption<br />
