These Are The Most Frequently Faked Foods

Nowadays most of the things that surround us are fake. We have to be careful not to buy fake perfumes, fake beauty products, but did it ever occur to you that you may be getting fake products on a daily basis? We have researched and found out there are 7 products that get faked a lot and endanger our health daily.

  1. Ground coffee. Coffee is expensive. This is why, in order to reduce production costs add ground wood, wheat and soybeans. To avoid buying fake coffee, just get coffee beans and grind them yourself.
  2. Pomegranate juice. Appreciated for its vitamins, pomegranate juice is often diluted with cheaper apple juice or water. Read careful the details on the package even if the label reads ‘’natural juice’’ in big bold letters.
  3. Olive oil. Olive oil is easily replaced with cheaper corn, palm or soy oil. If you want to find out if this is indeed olive oil, pour some in a glass and put it in the fridge. If it forms a sediment, you are in luck.
  4. Parmesan cheese. A leader in the market of fake foods, this cheese may contain about 10% wooden shavings. Always buy the whole wheel and carefully read the composition on the label.
  5. Often diluted with syrups with a high fructose content, real honey does not need to be kept in the fridge. So read the instructions once more.
  6. Fish is expensive and sorry to break it down to you, but most of the times you think you are getting real fish sushi, you get a different type of fish, a cheaper version, that’s sometimes even colored. So next time you feel like eating fish, order it in steak form. This way you will actually see the fish that’s being used.
