Quote from: PabloMack on December 03, 2015, 04:08:40 pmI think the other issue isn't driven by consumers but food producers. Something like 80% of the food in the US is produced by five mega-companies that have product development departments that are driven by sales. If the very few on their respective teams decide that more sugar will increase sales they will turn some dials and 100M people will just eat what's coming out of the extruder. Another problem is marketing. In order to label something "low carb" they increase the fat and in order to label something "low fat" they increase the carbs and that means lots of sugar. To make "low fat" salad dressing they replace the fat with corn syrup. I've stopped buying anything that is labeled "non-fat" because I don't want to eat what they have substituted for the fat. The stupid (or is it just "evil"?) marketers are putting "gluten free" on such things as beef, butter, eggs and all sorts of products that never had any gluten in them thinking that they can dupe the average zombie shopper into thinking it must be healthy. It is disgusting.
