10 Things About Food

Those of you interested in the food industry should take a look at the expose in U.S. News and World Report taking on the industry. The article, 10 Things the Food Industry Doesn't Want You to Know does a pretty good job of hitting the main points.

Then again if you have been reading here for any time you know the rules I have adopted for my food. They are, of course, from Michael Pollan.

Don't buy anything with a health claim.
If it has a health claim, it has a label.
If it has a label, it's in a package.
If it's in a package, it's probably not good for you.


If your great grand mother wouldn't recognize it as food then it probably isn't.


If it is in a package and the label has more than a few ingredients and there are any you can't pronounce then it isn't food.
