Cheese that steals calcium

Cheese that steals calcium


Some E-mail spread on bread. Here is a possible definition of a melted cheese sandwich. Melted cheese Mixtett is obtained by melting cheese with melting salts.
The product contains: water, butter, cheese or, as the case may be, emmentaler, skimmed milk powder. Prof. dr. Gheorghe Mencinicopschi analyzes the melting salts: "E 452 (polyphosphate), E 331 (mono citrate, bi and tri sodium), acidity corrector E 330 (citric acid), traces of sour cream, iodized salt. melted cheese type contains 55 grams of fat per 100 grams of product, having an energy value of 277 kcal / 1146kj and an average to high caloric density ".
Melting salts. "In the case of frequent consumption and in large quantities, the melting salts interfere with the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus in the bones preventing the fixation of calcium. Therefore, parents should prepare as little as possible sandwiches for children with this product. postmenopausal, elderly, people with or prone to osteoporosis will avoid frequent consumption of this type of cheese. "
We also learn from Professor Mencinicopschi that salts of phosphoric acid are found in other foods such as: carbonated drinks, confectionery, bakery, etc., which consumed on the same day can lead to exceeding the daily intake of phosphorus compounds, with imbalance of calcium-phosphorus balance and decrease of bone density (predisposes to osteoporosis).
