ANOTHER Reposting……[ first posted June 5th, 2009 ] brought this one up in light of a great posting over at Just Making Noise “The dirty secrets of Processed Cereals”.
Read below and then listen to the video before heading over to Just Making Noise for a fine write up about industry and why we should be making all our own breakfast cereals.
After having seen this video on cereals and how it applies to other processed fortified foods, and having seen the movie Food Inc.. I look at the foods on the grocery store shelves, meat departments all differently. To tell you the truth I really feel we can’t even trust the so called Organic breakfast cereals sold.
Time to start cleaning out your cupboards even more if you haven’t already and your considering changing your eating habits 100% and move to a Nutrient Dense Food Eating Style that truely is healthy eating the Nourishing Traditions way.
The findings in the video definitely are not in the camp of Eating Real Foods. And these findings…don’t just mean cereals, it also includes pasta’s, breads and anything else out there that has been tampered with to enrich it.
Is there anything on the store shelves anymore that really is good for us? The video is an eye opener. I have always wondered what they meant by Enriched. What actually is it they do to enrich the food. Obviously they are enriching it because it already is a depleted food source, so they do it to make it healthier for us.….so we’ve thought.
To make sure this was a ligitimate find I googled Health E Bytes and found Dr. Levy’s website.
Dr. Levy’s website where you can find the Health E Bytes he mentions and much more.
Under Health E – Bytes on the sites menu you will find archives # 4 about Enriched Foods he mentions in the video.
To read even more information on Cereals and what is in them head on over the Kelly the Kitchen Kop….I don’t know if I can even look at a box of cereal again….may have to avoid that aisle ! No I can’t avoid it! Pure Maple Syrup and Honey are in that aisle. Well, anyways read her posting and read the many comments left with even more information.
