HFCS – Common Food #3

Nabisco Honey Grahams contain not only high fructose corn syrup, but also partially hydrogenated oils.

Don’t worry, I’ll get back to posting new poems and testimonies soon, but in the meantime, I’m enjoying (or should I say fearing) finding foods in my own cupboards containing high fructose corn syrup.

Today I found a box that says, “Tastes Great and Contains 5 Grams Whole Grain!” The box also boasts that it’s a “sensible solution” with “low saturated fat” and “no cholesterol.” It’s a common food people feed to their babies as a snack as well! What’s this obesity-causing food?

Nabisco Honey Maid Honey Grahams. That’s right. Again, we have a food that seems like it shouldn’t be that bad. But the wonderfully yummy grahams contain not only HFCS, but also soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil.

Stay away from this garbage unless you want to grow fat and diseased. My sincere apologies to my baby for ever feeding her such junk.

  1. I happen to love fruit juice, just about any kind. Check out the labels as there is a high percentage of HFCS in some of them. We buy only 100% juice. I knew about ketchup. Our diet only has a bit of that from time to time. I should check out the organic brands Eric. I have wondered for some time now about the foods that are being sold to us in the store. Read the labels! Here’s another thing – gassed bananas. We heard from our local Safeway that they gass their bananas (using ethylene to help ripen green bananas). I found this article on the internet this morning which is very informative, both pro & con. It’s time to really learn what we’re putting into our mouths. Thanks Eric for the prod.
