    Health Claims On Junk Foods Are Dangerous

    Health claims on junk foods are dangerous because people believe the claims and then mistake the product for "healthy" or even for "real food." These are some of my favorite ridiculous health claims on food items.  All of these items are in my kitchen right now because my...

    Ranch dressing.  I have given-up on the shelf-stable bottled variety, but I love my Naturally Fresh Lite Ranch.  It is made with mostly real, identifiable ingredients (real dairy, eggs, etc.), but it contains partially hydrogenated oil and monosodium glutamate.  I give the...

    Starting Today...

    The fact that many, if not most, of the food items you can buy at a supermarket contain "non-food" ingredients is nothing new. Preservatives, colours, stabilisers, emulsifiers, colour fixatives, bulking agents, humectants, anti-caking agents, anti-foaming agents, acidity...
