“Processed”​ is a Useless, Empty Descriptor of Food

I posted this last week to LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/processed-useless-empty-descriptor-food-karthik-sekar/

I’ve seen some profoundly twisted takes on alternative foods and how “processed” they are. In this article, I clarify some confusion, explain the chemistry and biology behind food digestion, and argue why “processed” is a meaningless food descriptor. 

If we genuinely want tasty, affordable, healthy, kinder, and more sustainable food, we should use the better metrics and concepts already out there.
