Beware any ‘healthy’ food claims

I’m always wary of any food, or food maker, that claims to have a health food. Such claims are regularly debunked,as in this post I wrote back in 2014. So I wasn’t surprised to come across this latest list of so-called healthy foods that can be anything but.

Know what you;re buying when you pick a yogurt to eat.

This list comes from Freshdailyhealth.com which republished a piece Rodale Organic Life had in 2015.Happily for me, of the five listed I only regularly eat one, flavored yogurts, and am very careful to read nutrition information before making my selection.

Other foods that have hidden health issues:

  1. Granola
  2. Low-fat peanut butter
  3. Bran muffins
  4. Pre-made smoothies

The message here is one I often repeat, read nutrition information, don’t buy products without nutrition information on them or on their website, in the case of a restaurant or smoothie place, and don’t believe popular wisdom without doing your own research.
