This small study is the first randomized controlled trial – considered to be the standard of gold in science – examining the effects of ultra-processed foods. They are defined to contain industrial components, such as hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup, spice agents and emulsifiers.
In one month's study, 20 healthy adult volunteers remained at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, where their diet was given to them. Within 1
Two versions of the diet have the same number of calories, sugars, fiber, fat and carbohydrates. For example, unprocessed breakfast can be oatmeal with bananas, walnuts and skim milk, while others consist of a bagel with cream cheese and turkey bacon.

The prohibition of drinking ultra-processed food can be an effective strategy for prevention and treatment of obesity. "
