Once upon a time, some brave scientists had a noble dream of ridding our food of the plague of nutrients.
Today, at the start of the 21st century, the miracle of food processing has brought that dream closer to reality than ever before. From vitamin-free "blueberry bits" to spray-can cheese to avocado-free guacamole, food scientists have worked tirelessly to bring us new and exciting foods that contain as little nutrition as possible. Even apparently "healthy" foods such as soups have been ingeniously overloaded with so much salt you feel as if you're eating French fries.
In this article, we'll provide a handy guide to six uniquely unnatural processed foods that will hopefully serve as a blueprint for humanity's eventual triumph over the tyrannical fist of Mother Nature.
