Multi-National food companies love to manipulate the general public into buying their foods. They will spill anything on the front package that sounds healthy – but isn’t. It is half-truths to get you to buy their product. Let’s take a look at Uncle Tobys LeSnak as an example.
On the front of the package, it states in big BOLD PRINT ”made with real cheese.” While that may be true, how much of it is real? Well, let’s say 50%. Only half of the cheese spread is cheese; the rest is made up of…anything but cheese.
Water, margarine (vegetable fats and oils, water, salt milk solids emulsifiers (soy lecithin, and mono-and triglycerides of fatty acids, antioxidants (304 – ascorbyl palmitate, 307b – alpha-tocopherol), whey powder (milk), milk mineral, mineral salts (339 – sodium phosphate, 452 – pyrophosphate), preservative (234 – nisin) That is just for the cheese sauce. So much for ”real cheese” That is only the cheese.
Let’s move onto the crackers in the LeSnak.
