The U.S. department of Agriculture (USDA) defines a processed food as one that has undergone any changes to its natural state – that is any raw commodity subjected to washing, cleaning, milling, cutting, chopping, pasteurizing, cooking, canning, freezing, drying, packaging, or any other procedure that alters the food from its natural state. During all these processing steps, the chemical composition of the initial raw material can be dramatically altered.
