Sugar Added

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

    Not at all surprised about this.
Me neither. We've been reading the labels for years but it's not always easy with all the aliases for "sugar."

I see that "barley malt" is considered a sugar. :135:

I just figure the fewer pre-packaged goods in a home, the less sugar is in the home.

Here's a look:

"We find that three-quarters of all beverages had added sugar, that products that often people associate with a healthy alternative, things like snack bars — I think it was 99.4 per cent of snack bars contained added sugars. We even found that about half of baby food included added sugar," said David Hammond, professor in the school of public health at the University of Waterloo.

"So it wasn't a case of were the levels high and low in some other categories. It was a case of high and higher."
I'm over 50, I'm full of rage lately, I have two axes and I have a huge tree stump that needs to come out. Any questions?

Totally agree and I always check for "no added sugar" and I don't remember buying a whole lot of processed baby food - mostly froze pureed from scratch in ice cube trays. Juices are 100% with nothing added so if there is anything extra in it that's not on the label (i.e. 100% pure orange juice with nothing added ) then that would be deceiving the public. Will anything be done about it now that the public knows not everything is listed on the labels?

Looks like candy seconds get fed to cattle.

Doctor said I was pre-diabetic so I quit sugar and grains - not easy, but blood work is good now. However, I'm really not feeling good about eating obese, diabetic beef. Hope it's not something else I have to quit.

But hey, the experts say it's perfectly safe... :cuss:

Just eat the real stuff that's fed on real food. There is no reason to eat that garbage from the feeding lots.

^^^ Ptolemy Soter you are aware vast majority of beef slaughtered in Canada does come from feed lots. Only 1 way to insure the beef your eating meets your personal standards, is to raise it yourself...
you know what you fed the animal, so you know what you should get in the meat.

Oh, I know, and it's in a very personal way.

There are beef producers that I trust, but they are few in number.

Especially when it is mixed in certain concentrations with Dihydrogen Monoxide. Get that ratio wrong and it can be deadly. Get it right and you can drop it in your eyes and they will feel better.

Regular high sodium intake, places person on a road to hypertension. Daily intake not to exceed 1,500mg per/day.

Agreed. I didn't mean to be rash, but I guess it's just how I sound lately.

It's unsettling what happens at those places, regardless.

Not to mention that most sodium out there (refined table salt) is devoid of its natural nutrients, and is often brined in bleach and other nasties.
