Did you know that many low and no fat dairy products contain more chemicals and unhealthy ingredients than their full fat counterparts? It seems that in our quest for lower fat alternatives, we’ve turned to eating stuff that may not really be food after low.
For example, the fat free varieties of sour cream from Breakstone, Knudson and Naturally Yours include artificial color and corn syrup. Yuck!
Just compare this. Here is the ingredients of Knudson regular sour cream:
Cultured Pasteurized Grade A Cream, Enzymes.
Then see how the ingredient list grows for Knudson fat free:
Corn Syrup, (Dried), Modified Food Starch, Cream, (Trivial Source of Fat), Less than 2% of Starch, Artificial Color, Maltodextrin, Xanthan Gum, Natural Flavor, Vitamin A Palmitate.
Low fat or real food. The choice is yours.
