Whole Grains In Food: Just A Big Fraud, Like Some People

Posted: Updated:

Michael F. Jacobson of the Center for Science in the Public Interest reminded us of some veeeery interesting information Tuesday. He notes that some food manufacturers are exaggerating the amount of whole grain in their foods by labeling them as "whole grain," even when water and white flour are the main ingredients. "That's typical of many deceptive whole grain claims found in the supermarket," Jacobson wrote.

Deception is an ugly trait in any food. Why would you pretend to be someone, I mean something, you're not? You make people think you're better for them than they are, when it turns out you're just as toxic as the rest of them. If "whole wheat" Eggos could talk, they'd probably be called Todd, and they'd probably say things like, "I'd love to go to the opera with you!" when really they'd fall asleep EVERY TIME because they don't actually have chemical makeup for it. If it looks whole and says it's whole, it's probably just an Eggo waffle named Todd that will let you down.
