Now in every city and town, there are many supermarkets. Many people like to go to the supermarket because it has a comfortable place to play, a variety of goods, and sometimes competitive prices. However, there are some things in the supermarket you should not buy because eating regularly can be harmful to health, especially for children’s underdeveloped bodies.
There are four things in the supermarket, eating too much can be harmful to the body
1. Frozen meatballs and fish balls
A person who has worked in a supermarket for many years shared with a reporter of the newspaper Healthdaily that her family never eat meatballs, not even frozen ones – foods that many people like to use to cook hot pot or fried as snacks. The reason is, this type of product can be frozen for a long time.
This item is very easy to make a “destination” for bacteria. Most of the hot pot balls (squid, beef, chicken…) are made from flavorings, flour, and shredded meat. In addition, these frozen meats are often low in nutrition. Although the taste is attractive, if used regularly will not be beneficial to health.
2. Pre-ground meat
In modern life, to save time, people often buy pre-ground meat at the supermarket because chopping meat or grinding it yourself at home takes a lot of effort, not to mention cleaning tools is very time consuming. In the supermarket, there are always trays of bright red ground meat that look very eye-catching, but you never know what meat they are made of.
These types of meat are often processed from a lot of shredded meat, fat, even meat that has been aged for a long time… without you even knowing it. It is also difficult for buyers to know if the meat grinder is washed or not while the frequency of use is many times. The more meat left inside the machine of previous grinds, the dirtier it is and the easier it is to harbor bacteria.
Also according to an employee working at a supermarket for a long time: In many supermarkets, fresh meat is sold at one price on the first day, the next day the price will be lower. On the third day, all crumbs and unattractive flesh will be milled… Since supermarkets have a three-day limit on raw meat, ground meat, ready-to-eat meatballs are generally available. Usually made from meat that is about to expire. Although these meat trays clearly have an expiration date, that does not mean that the meat inside is as fresh as expected.
3. Overripe Pumpkin
Pumpkins are sold a lot in supermarkets. This is a food containing many nutrients, rich in iron, vitamins, mineral salts as well as organic acids, very good for people with iron deficiency anemia. However, if you find pumpkins in the supermarket overripe, don’t buy them.
Because pumpkin contains a high sugar content, moreover, if stored for a long time, it is easy to cause anaerobic respiration inside the pumpkin – fermentation and metamorphosis, which can cause poisoning after eating. Symptoms include dizziness, drowsiness, general weakness, vomiting and diarrhea. Therefore, do not buy pumpkin for too long.
4. Chopped fruit
In the supermarket, perhaps the thing that attracts you the most is the pre-cut fruit trays sold and sealed with food film that look very fresh and clean. However, these are not really good fruits.
Supermarket staff shared that most of the chopped fruit is the product of poor quality, unsold fruits. If the fruit is partially rotten, the staff in the supermarket will remove the damaged part, cut the remaining fruit so that it is beautiful and attractive to buyers.
At first glance, this approach is very reasonable and cost-effective for supermarkets, and convenient for users. However, a study by the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine showed that the number of bacteria in spoiled fruit only appeared 10%-50% in the moldy part. The rest will appear scattered in areas that look healthy. It is better to buy fruit at reputable stores and store it in the refrigerator yourself to ensure health safety.
