Why you should avoid biscuits??

- Loaded with sugar, fat and carbohydrates
-Non transparent & Cryptic ingredients like edible flour, oil
- Unknown fortified source which can be even animal source
- Contains Zero nutrients 1/n
- Cookie addiction is equivalent to cocaine addiction ( college of connecticut study)
- Gateway for all lifestyle disease like diabetes, obesity
- Contains unnamed preservative to have prolonged shelf life which will impact your metabolism and gut health
-A big No for infants, toddlers and elderly
- Should not be consumed when you are hungry, nor as a comfort food.. you end up suppressing your hunger due to loaded sugar content
- Cookies transfats easily bump up your triglycerides, thereby increases your cardiovascular risk
- Even the nut toppings in biscuits are hydrogenated and
dipped in high concentration sodium, sugar syrup /glazing agent so that they don't get discoloured and loose their texture

- Per me a biscuit are unhealthy all above a mysterious food product
- Rationale of mystery is their poor regulation in ingredients specifications

Below is image of popular and cheapest biscuit at the market synonymous to five rupee
The elephant in the room is their INS numbering standard which even a food technologist could not comprehend

It’s ammonium carbonate additive named cryptically so that customers don't get alarmed!
My biggest concern apart from all above is use (misuse? ) of emulsifier

Though its proclaimed to be vegetable oil emulsifier mostly stearic fatty acid is widely used as it's a cheap bone Phosphate and serves a anticaking agent too
You may ask why we are loosely regulated with these kind of thing, that's power of sugar and oil lobby

It's a big market to make you sick with your money and hands 🤔
So if you don't believe the market share

Their growth rate is always equivalent to sickness growth rate in hindsight

No intention to threaten but facts are printed on pack but just Cryptic 😎
There is lots of alternatives available rather than that crunchy and sugary bite

All Nuts, dried and salted makhanas, traditional Puffed rice cakes or spicy puffed rice to name a few

Mind the bite today and be healthy!!

- Going cold turkey on any food habit is unhealthy,&impossible with nervous stimulants like coffee it's more like a weightloss dieting
