We know that food advertising is often designed to entice us to over spend on something we don’t need! To help prevent being duped (and paying the price with your health), here are five deadly food lies and what they really mean: Lie 1: It’s “Natural” therefore good for you ‘Natural’ implies that the food comes directly from nature, is not processed or made from artificial sources. BUT: The meaning of ‘natural’ varies by country or region. For example, in the US, there is no legal definition of “natural” on food labels…it can mean whatever the food manufacturer wants it to mean. Food labelled as ‘natural’ isn’t always good for you. Animal meat treated with artificial hormones is often labelled ‘natural’, as is meat injected with saline solution (to add flavour and weight). Food containing “natural flavors” such as processed proteins can legally sport the label ‘natural’. Another case in point is Aspartame.
