I just read an AP article here: Butterball, Hostess, others going easier on salt
The powers that be on the "make America healthy because they're too stupid to know what's good for you, should really check the other ingredients besides salt, if they intend to make us eat healthier.
Turkey, it appears to me, doesn't much nutritional value, besides the salt!
These are the ingredients in the Wonder Bread's whole wheat loaf. If they listed the ingredients in their white bread by what it actually tasted like, it would say cardboard. If wheat bread is supposed to be so good for you, what do all the preservatives and words I can't even pronounce, do to your body?
Whole wheat flour, water, wheat gluten, high fructose corn syrup, contains 2% of less of: soybean oil, salt, molasses, yeast, mono and diglycerides, exthoxylated mono and diglycerides, dough conditioners (sodium stearoyl lactylate, calcium iodate, calcium dioxide), datem, calcium sulfate, vinegar, yeast nutrient (ammonium sulfate), extracts of malted barley and corn, dicalcium phosphate, diammonium phosphate, calcium propionate (to retain freshness).
These are the ingredients for Hostess Ding Dongs!
Besides the chemicals (again), check out the lard, artificial color and artificial flavor. Not much of the rest of it is real besides the sugar and salt.
Sugar, partially hydrogenated vegetable and/or animal shortening (may contain one or more of: soybean oil, cottonseed oil, palm oil, beef fat, lard), enriched flour (niacin, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin), water, cocoa, skim milk, corn syrup, eggs, mono- and diglycerides, starch, whey, leavening (baking soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, monocalcium phosphate), salt, sodium caseinate, lecithin, cellulose gum, polysorbate 60, artificial color, artificial and natural flavors, sorbic acid
So, will these products taste any less artificial, in the case of Hostess and Wonder, without the salt? I doubt it.
Ding Dong; they're wrong!
