The following are the all of the articles that have been tagged as and being related to altered labels that can be found here at Musings From Us, for your enjoyment.
I read labels, lots of labels, looking for the potential poison that might enter my food supply. I do not confuse HFCS with regular corn syrup, because regular corn syrup has been a confectionery staple for hundreds of years, for a far longer time than HFCS has been around. You see, the corn growers are finding out that maybe some part of the masses are a bit more clever than the other parts, and have decided it’s time to work their poison into those people who do read the labels. Be wary of the new and improved labels listing now as “cultured corn sugar”, “corn sugar”, and “corn sweetener”. I was even tricked today by the Oscar Meyer company, because I was not wary of this. I scanned the label for the main two culprits, HFCS and dextrose, and they were not listed. Thought maybe it was safe. I really wanted the Oscar Meyer Natural Ham, which is sweetened with celery juice, and has a very clean taste. I opted for the carving board brand, because I did not see the normal red flags. How was I to know the flags had changed?
In another food blog, http://corduroyorange.com, I learned how far this deceptive labeling has gone. Read along at http://corduroyorange.com/?p=782 to learn more. While you are reading up on this mind opening information, you might want to simply add a pack of real beet or cane sugar to your tea. That is one label that will never be altered.
