But experts have now found that a roast dinner can contain a staggering 230,000 microplastic particles.
Researchers said eating a similar meal every day would result in swallowing the equivalent of two plastic bags a year. The study was carried out by University of Portsmouth scientists and ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
Microplastics are defined as smaller than 5mm long. To see how many find their way into food, GMB reporter Michelle Morrison and her children made two roast dinners with chicken, potatoes, carrots, broccoli and Yorkshire puddings.
However, one meal was made with ingredients bought wrapped in plastic but the second had been mostly purchased without any plastic packaging. The roast made from ingredients wrapped in plastic contained seven times more microplastics than the other one.
