Which Foods are the Most Popular?
What three ingredients do food manufacturers add to addict you and increase sales of their products? You will find these three addictive substances in the majority of today's hyper-palatable processed and fast foods. And... drumroll please... the three secret ingredients are: sugar, fat, and salt. But, why?
These ingredients "seduce our taste buds" by stimulating our brain's pleasure center, causing us to crave the artificially concentrated flavors over the natural flavors in whole, unprocessed foods. Consuming these hyper-concentrated flavors leads to addictive, self-destructive behavior, which Doug Lisle, PhD describes as "The Pleasure Trap." He explains how we were designed to eat these flavors in very low concentrations that are contained in highly-fibrous, water-dense, nutrient-rich foods.
