1. Question1. Brazil Big Food
(1). The term “Big Food” refers to transnational and other large corporations that increasingly control the production and distribution of ultra-processed products throughout the world. These products are created from substances extracted from whole foods such as the cheap parts or remnants of animals, inexpensive ingredients such as “refined” starches, sugars, fats and oils, preservatives, and other additives. The products are formulated to be intensely palatable and to fool the body's appetite control mechanisms. Many of these products are formulated and packaged to have a long shelf life and to eliminate the need for culinary preparation. They can be consumed anywhere, immediately, and often dispense with the need for tables, chairs, dishes, cutlery, and cups. They are therefore often termed “fast” or “convenience” products. Since the 1980s, transnational manufacturers of packaged, long shelf-life snacks designed to displace meals have greatly increased their penetration first of high-income countries, and now of lower-income countries, including Brazil.Correct / You marked this questionIncorrect / You marked this question
