To examine the effect of this kind of food, containing a higher number of additives and preservatives, a team of researchers conducted a study in which they included 104,707 adult participants, 21,800 men and 82,907 women, who had taken part in the NutriNet-Santé study.

The study has been performed from 2009 to 2019 and during this period the researchers gathered data on the dietary intake of the participants using 24-h dietary records containing information on around 3,500 foods.

Having analyzed the available data, the researchers found a consistent link between the absolute amount of ultra-processed food consumption and the risk of type 2 diabetes.

The researchers write in their paper: “Even though these results need to be confirmed in other populations and settings, they provide evidence to support efforts by public health authorities to recommend limiting [ultra-processed food] consumption.”
