Northeastern University: Has Your Food Been Chemically Altered? New Database Of 50,000 Products Provides Answers

Northeastern University: Has Your Food Been Chemically Altered? New Database Of 50,000 Products Provides Answers. “In a paper published Tuesday in Nature Food, Giulia Menichetti, senior research scientist at Northeastern’s Network Science Institute, demonstrates that the concentrations of different nutrients in food follow a fixed pattern, and that the amount of any given nutrient in a food follows a similar mathematical formula. Inspired by these findings, her team determined that 73% of the U.S. food supply is ultra-processed, which they link to a higher risk of developing a variety of health issues. Their findings, which showed the level of processing for over 50,000 foods sold in the United States, were published in an online database for public use.”
