Ditch Ingredients Banned in Europe

The Food Industry

The food industry often sells two different versions of a food.  For example Pringles in the UK  have a different ingredient list than the ones sold in the US.  The questionable or dangerous ingredients banned in the UK have been removed, but instead of selling the same version everywhere the US population gets the short side of the stick.

Does the food industry care about our health?  It seems like they care more about their bottom line.  While I can’t say anything about any differences in taste, doesn’t it seem reasonable that if the food can be reformulated then why not use the same formulation in all places to keep production simple?  Are companies keeping things such as MSG and sugar to keep us addicted and coming back for more?

America is one of the unhealthiest nations in the world, you can be sure that these banned ingredients aren’t doing us any favors to our health.

Reasons to Eat Less Processed Foods

  • You won’t be consuming ingredients banned in Europe and other countries.
  • Processed foods can lead to cravings and addictions which can be frustrating and stressful.
  • By reducing your processed food intake you will be increasing your intake of whole foods which give you more nutrition and better health.
  • More nutrition means more energy and better moods.

From people who have taken the “10 Days of Real Food” pledge.

“I learned a great deal about food additives – we were already what I considered ‘healthy,’ but upon closer examination of our food choices, I realized that there were a host of contaminants in our meals, and subsequently in our bodies. As we traded in our breakfast cereal for green smoothies, I saw changes. Moods lightened, bowels began behaving, and cravings even started changing. The crunch of an apple is as addictive as that of a potato chip.” – Old Hickory, TN
“After a few days of withdrawal and brain fog, I started feeling great. I now have less fatigue during the day and just feel good about what we’re eating.” – Des Allemands, LA
“It has made me a much more thoughtful eater and shopper. I definitely have more energy and I’m not experiencing the hunger his and lows I had before. I even had a few people tell me I look great.” – Swampscott, MA
“I have learned so much more on the problems preservative can have on my children. My son has ADD and we feel we see a change. I cut out food dye a while ago but with the change of food, he seems to be doing more talking and can concentrate more.” – Roseville, MI
