Wren 1 G Wren Professor Savage English 100 22 April 2011 “Fresh Homemade Natural Foods Verses Prepackaged Processed Food-like Substances” This three page essay explains how one would compare natural food ingredients verses artificial, prepackaged processed food like substances and how they are both created and prepared. For example, the healthier more natural meals are most likely prepared in a conventional or convection oven and/or stove top burners in pots, pans, skillets or bake ware at temperatures above 300* degrees Fahrenheit in cooking temperature. Meanwhile, it is the microwave oven that serves a better purpose for the prepackaged foods on the go. These packaged foods like substances are sold in the inner isle of the grocery stores and can also be found in the frozen food sections as well. The more natural meals are prepped and prepared in a kitchen with fresh ingredients and can take up to an hour or more to complete the entire meal.
