A friend recently shared this interesting article from The Guardian which is worth looking at…
“Think you eat only healthy, unprocessed foods? Think again. Joanna Blythman went undercover and discovered that even your fruit salad is not what it seems…”
Joanna sneaks into a food industry expo where things such as
“texturised soy protein: minced ham colour,” Mmm yummo.
The article outlines how food labelling sometimes can misrepresent heavily processed ingredients as natural food components. For example, “Picking up a salami, even the most guarded shopper might relax when they see rosemary extract on the ingredients list – but rosemary extracts are actually “clean-label” substitutes for the old guard of techie-sounding antioxidants (E300-21), such as butylhydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylhydroxytoluene (BHT).”
