Ingredient labels – Trick or Treat?

Searching for a healthy product can be confusing if you don’t know what to look for. Not only are you tempted by the masterful marketing on the front packaging of an item, you can also be deceived by the claims being made. Be on the lookout for claims that lure you to buy such as “Sensible Portions,” Cheating with chocolate” or “All Natural,” even “Healthy” and “Organic” can be deceiving.

006The best way to ensure that you are actually buying food and not a chemical-laden piece of plastic is to ignore the front labels and get into the habit of reviewing the ingredient labels on the back of any packaged food item. Here are some key tricks to ensuring that you are purchasing quality foods with trustworthy ingredients.

Learn to read your nutrition labels!

Not only should you get in the habit of checking the ingredients, check the fiber content of the foods you buy as well. Stick to foods with high fiber content of at least 2g or more per serving.

Know your ingredients!

Notice the ingredients on this label include the words:

“Sprouted and Organic.”

So far, so good.

If you cannot read a word or are unsure of what it is, do NOT purchase it. Look it up first and question its’ health benefit. If you are still confused, ask a health and nutrition expert.

Ingredients to avoid: 

Monosodium Glutamate, Aspartame, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Partially Hydrogenated Oil, Sugar, Natural or Artificial Color, Spices, Sucralose, Splenda, Enriched Bleached White Flour, Soy Protein Isolate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid

None of these can be found in a garden and they are either synthetic or harmful.

Choose real foods! IMG_4725

You know that sesame seeds, bananas or dates are foods that can be found in nature, but High Fructose Corn Syrup can only come from a lab. So learn to recognize what is real versus lab generated or modified in some form. A good rule of thumb to remember is: If it doesn’t grow out of the ground. off a vine or tree, chances are it’s not your healthiest choice. Keep your food choices as close to their most natural state as possible and READ YOUR LABELS!
