DyeDiet Doesn’t Buy It!
What do you expect from a product when its DyeDiet risk and nutrition diagram is red more than in half? You are right! Don’t use your stomach as a garbage container! Because, if you do, you will take unacceptable chemical risk of DDFI = 117/40 ~ 2.9 and laughable nutritional value of DDNF = 40/153 ~ 0.25, that is close to zero.
What is patriotic? Is it when one carries the flag all the time or maybe when the one is loyal to the government day and night no matter what? I don’t think so. To be a patriot means to pay respect to the US Constitution and to stand for personal Liberty. Then both free market and freedom will follow and fill the country’s life with real prosperity, and not with corporatism, monopoly dictate and tyranny. What can be more disgraceful, more unpatriotic and more betrayal than marketing worst possible food garbage under the American Flag? Who could dare doing that? Here they are, Ralcorp Frozen Bakery Prod., 215 North 700 West #A-10, Ogden UT, 84404; tel. 1(888) 692-3451, the manufacturer of this crap: Lofthouse Delicious Cookies.
Frozen bakery and, perhaps, frozen conscience and frozen souls…
The main ingredients are presented by 4 nutrients 2 of which are questionable:
- Enriched bleached wheat flour, a flour bleached to “death”
- Margarine, a source of hidden trans fat, a cheap substitute for butter
The rest 36 ingredients (!) are mostly artificial preservatives, stabilizers, emulsifiers colorants and other unwelcome chemicals. Among them 15 are biologically hostile food additives (red segments in the DyeDiet diagram), 9 benign food additives (yellow segments) and 9 formal nutrients that consist of starches, waxes and oils (green segments).
With every “patriotic” cookie you will introduce 12 mg of an azo dye Red 40 into your blood. This chemical is feared to trigger ADHD and allergic reactions in children and adults (read PDF file, p. 29 of Food Dyes: A Rainbow of Risks and Diet, ADHD and Behavior).
Domestic food terrorism. If the Lofthouse Patriotic Cookies are designed to bring some health damage to the American people, including children (read PDF file Food marketing to children) when they celebrate the 4th July, maybe the manufacturer profiting out of this product is associated with Al-Qaeda?
A better choice. Luckily, instead of the Lofthouse’s nonsense, you can pick up Oatmeal Raisin Cookies of Walmart Bakery right on the same aisle and for the same money!
While it’s far from what you can buy at the Whole Foods Market for a triple price, still, at least there are no ugly chemicals and no false patriotic decorations screaming on the label. You will just get a descent quality for a descent price. I have tried and I liked these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. You have a wonderful 4th July!
