DyeDiet DOESN’T BUY IT!
This is another NOT very toxic food example with only 0.6 units of the Foreign Additive Impact (DDFI) and poor nutritional value of DDNF ~ 0.8. But do NOT trust the front of the label. If you look at the back side you will see that CHEDDAR CHEESE content is only 2% or LESS and you get 190 calories from fat and sugar. So WHAT are these crackers? Well, they simply are:
- Enriched flour – Enriching is necessary because the processing used to make white flour destroys most of the nutrients that originally were present in the whole grain.
- Vegetable oil
- tert-Butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ). Why TBHQ should be avoided?
- Sugar – your way to diabetes
- Salt and, of course,
- Yellow 6 – fake cheese colorant! You get ~ 3 mg of the azo dye with every cracker. Read the Feingold Association’s report Behavior, Learning and Health: The Dietary Connection. Also look in CSPI report Food Dyes: A Rainbow of Risks. Here is a mom’s story for you to read too.
Is this product healthy? No, this is another fake food for you. Its risk and nutrition values are the same as those of Tic Tac. Yes, you may survive with these crackers in a basement after the End of the World but for now you have better food choices. These ridiculous Austin Cheese Crackers trick you with 2% or less of cheddar cheese. How much less, 1% or 0.5%? Ask the manufacturer. Alternatives? Consider Honey Wheat Braided Twists instead:
Free yourself from the chemical serfdom of the US food industry. Make your informed healthy food choice!
