Blatant Lies Printed On Product Labels

Every time you go down the aisles of a grocery or department store you see product labels vying for your attention, boldly claiming their products are new, improved and give you more for your money.

But you probably shouldn't listen to those labels- because many of them are telling lies.

They use words and phrases like "organic", "made with real fruit", "no cholesterol". "heart healthy" and "grass fed" to fool us into thinking we're paying more for higher quality products.

The use of deceptive wording has become standard practice on product labels, but the problem isn't just what the labels omit- it's the things they mention on purpose to trick us into choosing their brand over others.

The abominable practice of cutting honey with up to 50% filler such as corn syrup is a real danger to people with corn allergies. The FDA allows this polluting of honey as long as the filler isn't more than 50% AND the seller/supplier does not have to tell you about it.
Many companies will heat the honey and ruin the benefits of it because heating the honey to a high enough degree will prevent the honey crystallizing. Raw honey will crystalize but it can be liquified by putting the jar into a pot of hot water. It's a long process because it must be done slowly.
IMO, buckwheat honey is the best for people with allergies and for the darker, stronger taste which makes wonderful bread. Not everyone's a fan of it because it is so much darker and has a bit of an aftertaste. But people who like dark brown sugar and molasses will love it, I think.
