Food Frauds: They trick you and rip you off! 

1.     Smucker’s Simply Fruit. The strawberry version of this fruit spread contains only 30 percent strawberries. The blueberry version contains only 43 percent blueberries. Both have more fruit syrup that comes, not from berries, but from cheaper apple, pineapple, or pear juice concentrate.

2.     Post Honey Bunches of Oats. The box of this best-selling cereal trumpets “Good Source of Whole Grain,” yet it has more refined corn than whole grain. In fact, the cereal may be as little as 25 percent whole grain.

3.     General Mills Multi-Bran Chex. The box states that the product is “made with whole grain.” But the cereal has more corn meal and sugar than whole grain.

4.     Nature’s Promise Natural Vegetable Sticks. The label claims “it’s the fun way to eat your veggies” – potatoes, tomatoes, and spinach – but the product has more white potato flour, oil, and starch than even tomato or spinach puree.

5.     Kellogg’s Eggo Nutri-Grain Pancake. The box boasts that these pancakes are “Made with Whole Wheat and Whole Grain,” but they consist primarily of white flour.

6.     Gerber Graduates for Toddlers Fruit Juice Treats. The packaging is decorated with pictures of oranges, cherries, and strawberries. Yet the leading ingredients are corn syrup and sugar. These snacks are more like candy than fruit juice.

7.     Enviga. The advertising for this new carbonated drink from Coca-Cola/Nestle claims that, thanks to a combination of caffeine and an antioxidant found in green tea, the product burns more calories than the drink provides, and implicitly promotes weight loss. In fact, those claims are based on inconsistent, short-term, and industry-funded studies.

8.     DanActive “immunity” dairy drink. This Dannon product claims to help “strengthen your body’s defenses.” But the only actual study conducted on people found that DanActive didn’t prevent illness – and 25 percent of the participants had to cut their dose in half because they suffered bloating, gas, and nausea.

Ten Super Food For Better Health!

At least one will surprise you…

  1. Sweet Potatoes. A nutritional All-Star – one of the best vegetables you can eat. They’re loaded with carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. Mix in unsweetened applesauce or crushed pineapple for extra moisture and sweetness.
  2. Grape Tomatoes. They’re sweeter and firmer than other tomatoes, and their bite-size shape makes them perfect for snacking, dipping, or salads. They’re packed with vitamin C and vitamin A, and you also get some fiber, some phytochemicals, and (finally) some flavor.
  3. Fat-free (Skim) or 1% Milk (but not 2%). Excellent source of calcium, vitamins, and protein with little or no artery-clogging fat and cholesterol. Ditto for unflavored low-fat yogurt. (Soy milk can have just as many nutrients – if the company adds them.)
  4. Broccoli. Lots of vitamin C, carotenoids, and folic acid.
  5. Wild Salmon. The omega-3 fats in fatty fresh fish like wild salmon can help reduce the risk of sudden-death heart attacks. And salmon that is caught wild has less dioxin contaminant than farmed salmon.
  6. Crispbreads. Whole-grain rye crackers, like Wasa, Ry Krisp, and Ryvita – usually called crispbreads – are loaded with fiber and often fat-free.
  7. Microwaveable or “10 minute” Brown Rice. Enriched white rice is nutritionally bankrupt. You lose the fiber, magnesium, vitamins E and B-6, copper, zinc, and who-knows-what phytochemicals that are in the whole grain. Try quick-cooking or regular brown rice instead.
  8. Citrus Fruits. Great-tasting and rich in vitamin C, folic acid, and fiber. Perfect for a snack or dessert. Try different varieties: juicy Minneola oranges, snack-sized Clementines, or tart grapefruit.
  9. Diced Butternut Squash. A growing number of food stores sell peeled, seeded, cut, and ready to go – into the over, into a stir-fry, or into a soup or risotto, that is – bags of diced butternut squash. Every half cup has 5 grams of fiber and payloads of vitamins A and C.
  10. Pre-washed, Pre-Cut Bags of Greens. Greens like kale, spinach, and broccoli rabe are nutritional power houses. Most are loaded with vitamin C, carotenoids, calcium, folate, potassium, and fiber. Now it’s easy to squeeze healthy greens into your busy schedule.
