What do not like canned food? First, for a surplus of sugar and salt, and secondly, any product of long-term storage and enhanced heat treatment is not too useful for the body. And for long storage preservatives are added to canned food.
What canned food love? This food is convenient. It is stored for a long time, it requires almost no preparation, opened a can – and you can enjoy your meal.
However, due to heat treatment, many useful elements die. Vitamin C, for example, decomposes.
Therefore, vegetable and fruit preparations prepared by boiling, lose it up to 70%. Vitamins of group B and fat-soluble vitamin E remain, but their quantity decreases at storage (for a year by 90%).
There are substances that after heating become even more useful: antioxidants lycopene and betacarotene. A lot of them are found in carrots, so canned food with it is already useful for health. For the same reason, canned tomatoes, pumpkins and other vegetables and fruits of red and orange color are useful.
Fat-soluble vitamins A, K, E, D are resistant to heat treatment, so they can also be stored in canned foods, for example, in the same fish. And the minerals calcium, magnesium and others also do not disappear anywhere when canning.
The same applies to very useful omega-3 fatty acids, which are in canned fish. By the way, such canned food is healthier to eat right from the bones, which soften in the canning process and become a rich source of calcium.
By the way, in terms of the content of this vital vitamin, canned fish is second only to sesame seed and hard cheeses. 100 g of such canned calcium as much as in a glass of milk.
In addition, vitamins and trace elements, though an important, but not the only useful component of food. The basis of human nutrition after all are proteins, fats and carbohydrates.
And they in canned food precisely are.
Is it possible to canned children? Nutritionists advise giving children canned food only from the age of seven. For some, a reasonable question arises: do children, almost from infancy, do not eat baby food from jars, which you cannot call anything other than canned food?
Dietitians and manufacturers are eating, but these are completely different canned foods made from special products, without additives, which are allowed in adults and, on the contrary, with the addition of vitamins, and have undergone a special treatment. They have a different method of conservation, and therefore the duration of their consumption is shorter than adults.
All these conditions, of course, require other costs, and baby food is much more expensive than adult canned food.
In high-quality canned food, in addition to the product stated on the label, there may be: sugar, salt, spices, spices.
There are in canned food and other additives, artificial, chemical origin, which is administered for the purpose of longer storage. Most of them are harmful to health and, often, simply mask the poor quality of canned food, because they are made in accordance with the established technology, they are well preserved and without impurities.
So, carefully read the labels.
The conclusion from all this can be made as follows: one cannot eat only canned food and nothing more, of course, but with great love for them and, if necessary, it is sometimes quite possible to consume. And additives to the contents of jars in the form of oils, fresh vegetables, fruits and grain products will make of them a dish not only tasty, but also quite healthy.

And the very first canned food was created specifically for Napoleonic soldiers.
Noting the 200th anniversary of the invention in 2009, the Japanese Canning Society released an exclusive batch of canned food according to the recipes of Upper for Napoleonic soldiers. The Japanese repeated the soldiers’ consomté, a stew of vegetables, a soup of boiled pot-o-beef beef, a melange of beans and mushrooms and a strawberry dessert.
These canned foods were solemnly opened and tasted at the Tokyo headquarters of the cannery.
