Vegeta is a condiment which is a mixture primarily of salt with flavour enhancers, spices and various vegetables invented in 1959 by a Croatian scientist Zlata Bartl. If you want to mix spices, it is best to do that in your own home.
Certainly, one of the most recognizable Croatian brands is Vegeta,which was created back in 1959.
When the scientist Zlata Bertl, known as ‘aunt Vegeta’, made this product, she mixed spices and dried vegetables, especially carrots, onions and celery and served it as an excellent addition to soups and stews.
However, when she created this mixture of spices, Zlata probably never dreamed that this product will reach so much glory.
Back then and even now, Vegeta is recognized as one of the most widely used food additive, which is usedin almost every dish.
However, it seems that Vegeta, which is now offered on supermarket shelves, is far from pure mixtures of dried vegetables. It contains a large amount of salt, more than 50 percent.
Besides that, it contains hidden flavor enhancers or additives, which are added to foods in order to prolong their shelf life, make them tastier and make them look good.
A large amount of additives dominate the taste of the food, which makes it lose its natural flavor.
Additives are marked with E-numbers, depending on their impact on human health. They are divided into three categories: green, which are not dangerous to human health; yellow, which should be consumed in small quantities; and red, which should be avoided at all costs.
The most common additive in Vegeta is the extremely harmful monosodium glutamate MSG – a flavor enhancer and replacement for salt – which in Vegeta can be found as much as 15% percent. MSG is a food additive E 621 that is marked in red!
Its side effects range from migraines to deteriorating asthma symptoms and all the way to provoking: nausea, dizziness, palpitations, anxiety, chest pain, hyperactivity, flatulence, thirst, cold sweat, redness of the face and allergic reactions.
In large quantities, it can lead to atrophy of nerve cells, which cantrigger Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease. It is prohibited to add Vegeta in children’s food. Precisely because of MSG, many mothers removed Vegeta from their kitchen.
Dried vegetables are there only to cover the chemical compounds that aim to deceive and even poison the consumer.
Thus,the expensive Vegeta today contains salt, a little dried roots and crumbs of spices.This can bea proof that people who use it are buying unhealthy and even toxic food.
If you are in the group of those who found an alternative in Vegeta Natur, then you’re still not on the right track.
This is a product that contains yeast extractors, or artificially obtained glutamic acid that “enhances” the salty taste.
It is true that the glutamic acid is a non-essential amino acid, but the natural one can be found in foods and should be entered into the body in that way.That intake presents a proper diet and is more than enough.
Therefore, it would be better if you used Zlata’s method by yourself in your home andmake a mixture of spices that will not only be beneficial to your health but it will also be tasty.
