You feel comfortable when you visit the supermarket (grocery)
and you even call the “best” place to purchase all your items. However, there
are some sad truths you would not like to know but you need to know I will reveal
to you in this article. As the theme of the article implies, we will examine
some dark secrets about the supermarket foods you never knew and you would feel
absolutely hugger-mugger to know what you deemed possible with those foods you
purchase at the supermarket.
You feel welcome at the supermarket because of the decent
environment you are used to or possibly because of the scent that has always
cajoled you into going there to purchase your foodstuff.
All these, alongside several others, are just their own perfect way of keeping
their customers as nobody would love to lose customers.
But watch this space for some surprising things you would
find out about the supermarket—where you purchase your food.
- They may
change the expiration of some products
The date of expiration of some items is due pack
ing out of the way for new ones to be seen. However, because some manufacturers don’t want to lose even a penny in their business, they make a habit of changing the expiry date of some products. Even if you tell the employees that it stuff is due to its expiry date, they will have a heated argument with you. This is where the use of your senses comes into action. If something tastes bad or smells fetid it is best you don’t risk purchasing it.
- They Hide the Body’s Fast-Killing Agents
Some manufacturers add more and more additives to the food you purchase at the supermarket. This makes it impossible for one to cut off sugar completely however hard they try. Sometimes, you see some label their products “calories-free” or “sugar-free”, but the reality is that those items they tag “sugar-free” are not even near to such. Unless we are eating them directly (as at when fresh), supermarket owners will keep telling us lies upon lies that those items are calorie-free or sugar-free because they work hand in hand with the manufacturers.
- Even after
Failing a Food Safety Inspection, They Still Open
This, in fact, is very shocking! You see some restaurants which have been
closed down as a result of their failure to pass the food safety test, but you
cannot see a supermarket which is closed down because it failed the
inspection—it’s rare to see—if there is even any. And when you deem it fit to see
their inspection score, they will never allow you to do that. You know what it
means to outrightly fail a food safety inspection. This poses a very big
challenge to your health because failing
such a test means that their items are nothing to take home. However, not all
supermarkets do fail an inspection, there are so many out there with a good reputation even from the government.
- The Entire Supermarket is Designed to Make You Spend More
have you ever thought of this? Even if you had planned to buy some important items at the supermarket, there will definitely be some eye-catching items you will see there, leaving you there like a Joseph in Egypt. Also, not all eye-catching items are termed “healthy” because some have gone to the abyss of rottenness while claiming to be in the safest haven.
