Ultra-processed Food Consumption and the Incidence of Depression in a Mediterranean Cohort: The SUN Project

Generous consumption of ultra-processed foods can trigger the onset of depression in young men and women.

This study set out to answer the question: can frequent intake of ultra-processed foods up the risk of depression in young men and women? More than 14,000 Spanish university graduates enrolled for this study and reported their food choices and mood states over a 10-year period. 

Researchers discovered that regular ingestion of ultra-processed foods resulted in a significant increase in the risk of depression. The findings of this study show that lovers of ultra-processed foods may be highly prone to suffer from depression.
