Understanding the Ingredients List

Understanding the ingredients that are actually in your food is challenging. Food companies try their best to disguise ingredients that damage your health. They frequently use different words for the same ingredient. If researchers discover an ingredient will damage your health, food manufacturers will swap it for something less known but just as unhealthy.

Since most food companies don’t care about your health, it’s important to learn to understand what’s really in your food. It will take you some time to recognize everything that shows up in your food. You can get used to the ingredients by looking up each one you don’t recognize. By doing this, you’ll familiarize yourself with them over time.
