Food Transparency - Page 2

post #31 of 33

I am all for transparency in food however I am skeptical of it truly being achieved at the same time. I figure the big guys will put their spin teams on it and the little guys will just have extra headaches.

 

Also I kind of look at it like the cancer warnings on gas pumps etc., merely a business cya and a lessening of responsibility for individuals. People need to step up to the plate more and take their well being on their own shoulders through research and education.

 

Stepping off the soap box now.

 

As others have said, and in pursuit of my own research and education, I also would be interested in your writings.

A better way to denote simple sugars on labels is to mark them in some way. No, it's not a good idea to label everything as sugar because there is a big difference between HFCS and honey for example. But they should be highlighted or underlined or bolded or followed by an S for sugar or something.
