Abstract

Technological advancements in food production, preparation, and processing have yielded improvements in the quality of life, food safety, and health. Yet, the proliferation of highly processed, ready-to-eat or ready-to-heat products, commonly referred to as ultraprocessed foods, has elicited concern because they tend to have poorer nutrient profiles and can replace more nutrient-dense, whole food options in the diet.
