    been over-processed and de-natured so that there is nothing left  - all for the sake of "convenience". Here in Germany (expat here) you don't have rows upon rows upon rows of junk food (though you do see more potato chips nowadays) and "ready-to-eat" stuff that you find in US grocery stores, and the Germans - contrary to some stereotypes - are generally not fat, though obesity in youth has increased, too, along with fattening after-school snacks. That causes some concern here, too, but it's nothing like the problem in the States, to say nothing of the health problems caused by poor nutrition. That's a whole 'nuther can of worms.
