Did You Know - June 2017

Food packaging has become very deceiving. For example- Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Organic has more fat and chemicals than regular Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

These are the ingredients to look out for on food labels;
Sodium Nitrate- found in pre-packaged meats.
Potassium Bromate- found mainly in breads. This is used to increase volume, but it is hard on the digestive track and adds inflammation.
BHA & BHT- a preservative for shelf life.
High Fructos Corn Syrup
Olestra, also called Olean- found in chips and causes stomach cramps, headaches and diarrhea. This is worse than gluten, when consumed your body can't absorb vitamins A, D, E & K.

Did you know it takes over 50 chemicals to create the flavor Strawberry?
Reach for less ingredients and more natural items. Look to Rotisserie Chicken for sandwiches. Daves' Killer Bread is a great choice. Try Black Bean Quinoa chips instead.
