Transparency

I don’t know about you, but the first time I realised that companies were being dishonest was around the time when sugar was the big bad wolf.

It was the first time I realised that the big words on the label such as ‘Healthy’ ‘Natural’ and ‘Low Fat’ don’t mean a thing, and in most cases the more overcompensation with words, the more they were trying to hide something.

It was then that I found out there were 56 different names for sugar, which makes it much easier to hide from those of us in a hurry (i.e. can’t be stuffed to google weird words on the list of ingredients).

It’s not that I’m against eating sugar, it’s just that I want a choice – is it too much to ask???

Now, I want to turn the attention to all other ingredients not just in the product, but used in the process of making that product. I’m particularly referring to chemicals.

Believe it or not, businesses are not required by law to disclose harmful substances, which have been used to make the product or used in the manufacturing process as long as the type and amount complies with certain regulatory requirements/limits.

Am I the only one to think this is criminal?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this…
