Junk food with “gluten-free” on the label is still junk food. I saw this note and it just reminds us that manufacturers will get on whatever bandwagon is going by at the time. Businesses are in the business to make money. That means they will advertise on the borderline of ethical. Natural, low-fat, no sugar added, whole grain, gluten free just to mention a few are ways food manufacturers attempt to attract the culture of the health conscious. Read the label. It’s hard to hide ingredients that really aren’t what they appear. If you don’t know what an ingredient is on their label, look it up on the internet. For example, I saw this word the other day—Fructooligosaccharides. I looked it up and it says, “Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are oligosaccharides that occur naturally in plants such as onion, chicory, garlic, asparagus, banana, artichoke, among many others. They are composed of linear chains of fructose units, linked by beta (2-1) bonds.” In other words it’s another natural sweetener. Course there is always even controversy over what is junk food or even what sweeteners are good. Watch the hype and stay off the bandwagon going by.
