Nature's Own

"Natural" Cooking - On a warm December day, I found the kids baking these utensils they had made out of clay (dirt). (12/5/08)

The pictures I took of my layouts yesterday didn't turn out. Now I have to wait for the sun to come out to shoot again (it's gloomy). To make your visit valuable, though, here is a little bit of useful information: Nature's Own Wheat Lite Bread contains high fructose corn syrup. I read the ingredient list twice b/c I just couldn't believe it! I will say that I usually buy Nature's Own Whole Wheat Bread, and it does not contain HFCS. Upon closer inspection of the Lite, I notice that the label does read "Enriched Bread" (small print, but still, how could I have missed that!) I consider myself good at reading bread labels - I know to avoid "enriched" and to look for "whole wheat" on the ingredient list. I always check for 3+ grams of fiber. This is an example of how I assumed it was all good. This bread with HFCS has a label that boasts "No Artificial Preservatives, Colors or Flavors". This is not *technically* false advertisement, but it is definitely misleading. Become, and stay, an informed consumer.
