@GraniteChief, What I appreciate your simplistic look at what food processing means to the modern day home food maker. The reality is that processed foods are actually coming out of factories and made on equipment that is both dangerous and made of materials that can harm human body.
Toxins from metal, petroleum lubricants, and other toxic materials are often found inside of a food processing plant. Dairy food processing is one of the biggest culprits of introducing other chemicals into our milk supply. The scary part is, are dairy farms are highly unregulated.
