Identifying junk food seems simple on the surface: fast foods, soft drinks and sweets probably spring to mind. You might think that’s the end of it, but there’s another culprit hiding in many of our daily diets: ultra-processed foods
In this episode of the 33Fuel podcast, Warren explores what junk food is and delves into a new system of classifying foods into one of four categories based on their degree of processing. Learn the difference between unprocessed foods, processed ingredients, processed food and ultra-processed foods and how to identify each.
