Do you really understand ingredients?
Recently, I was asked about the ingredients in the nutritional superfood products our family consumes, as they felt the ingredients were not healthy and artificial. This made me look more deeply into this and how to best explain these ingredients. Here is a good way to explain them.
I care too much about food labels. If something has monosodium glutamate (E621) or high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in it, I’m probably not going to buy it no matter how healthy or delicious the food looks as a whole.
Some people care about different ingredients such as “E-numbers”. This graphic demonstrates how “natural” products (such as a banana) contain scary-looking ingredients as well. All the ingredients on this list are 100% natural in a non-GM banana. None of them are pesticides, fertilizers, insecticides or other contaminants.
Pretty eye opening. Wouldn’t you agree?
I value your questions, comments and feedback. I’m always listening!
Yours in health,
