We are beginning to become more concerned with what goes into our body, but who else really cares?
Today’s post is by Shelly Hayre; Project Manager at SafeSourcing.
As I walk around the grocery store reading labels of my common purchases and avoiding “known” bad ingredients, I wonder why it is allowed in our food if it is proven to be bad for our health. Only does it start getting removed from food when the general public is aware of the effects and will not purchase products with that ingredient.
This will lead you to the organic products, but these products can be very expensive at the grocery store. Grocery stores typically only carry a few organic lines and it does not cause enough competition on the shelf for lower prices.
BUT it gets better! Greek yogurt is my food of choice for breakfast. It has many benefits that are greater than regular yogurt, many consumers are aware of this. The problem is that consumers look for the word “GREEK” and they assume it has all the benefits they read about in a magazine. This is not always the case. Greek yogurt, for example, does not have a standard for labeling your product “GREEK” yogurt. So you could really be eating a yogurt that does not provide the extent of what that magazine told you.
Unless you are very educated on food products and have disposable money for true organic food it is hard to avoid these new food processes that cut cost for producers. I often wonder why this is not regulated more.
