“Detox” is a word thrown around a lot in hopes to rid the body of undesirable (and unknown) toxins that are claimed to undermine our health. The same can be said about ultra-processed foods – those with a long list of ingredients and additives that we’re not quite sure of in terms of safety. Examples can include certain preservatives, food colors or emulsifiers. These foods typically can also contain unreasonable amounts of sugar, salt and fat that provide us with nearly a day’s worth of the current recommendations.
