    Default Fake Food

    Reasons to grow and prepare your own food from scratch.I am getting to the point that you can't trust anyone,but I really don't get how these companies get away with labeling products the way they do.

    They get away with it because consumers look at the pretty pictures on the front and don't read that pesky fine print on the back.

    I read so often on these forums about the cheap food prices people are finding and just shake my head at what they're really getting. I'd have to be desperate to feed my family all that prepared "food". Sure, it saves money in the short term, but what's the real cost in the long run?

    The older I get, the more cynical I become about stuff like this, and the less I trust the food companies, importers, and government oversight agencies.

    What irks me about food lately is how there are laws on the books to ensure food labels indicate country of origin, but so much of what I pick up in the store is labeled 'distributed by...' which doesn't tell a consumer a thing.

    I know,it is ridiculous how the food industry works.But as you say,if you don't read the labels and fall for the pictures, well you need some education on the subject.
    We were talking about this the other day.Breyers Ice Cream,which we CALL ice cream,has a tiny writing at the bottom of the container 'FROZEN DESSERT".What a joke.The first ingredients are modified milk ingredients,and it goes downhill from there.

    I'm convinced processed foods are what's causing so much of the disease in this country. It can't all be because of fast food and too much time playing video games. The rise in health problems seems to have started at the same time convenience foods started becoming popular.

    This is why coupon shopping doesn't work very well for me. I don't buy the 'foods' most coupons apply to anyway.

    Now all my adult life I have been a label reader my oldest was allergic to milk. The habit has continued.

    That said I must ask are there really people who believe the pictures on the front?

    Also my experience has been the shorter the lngredients list the cheaper the price, unless it is being sold as heathier. And some ultra short list can be found in odd places
