The quantity of ingredients does not determine the quality, health, or safety of a food

It doesn’t matter if the product requires the use of 1 or more 5 ingredients.

When a processed food contains many ingredients, it is because they are required to fulfill specific functions, whether to give flavor, color, texture, preserve the product, etc. And it does not interest to any industry to use ingredients without any need, as it does not make practical sense and because it would cause an increase in the costs.
