The Processed Food market is a sector of the food industry that involves the transformation of raw ingredients into food products. This includes the addition of preservatives, flavorings, colorings, and other ingredients to create a variety of food products. Processed foods are often packaged and sold in supermarkets, convenience stores, and other retail outlets.
Processed foods are typically high in fat, sugar, and salt, and may contain additives and preservatives. They are often less nutritious than fresh foods, and may contain unhealthy levels of trans fats, sodium, and other unhealthy ingredients.
