Do You Know a Twinkie has 39 Ingredients?

1 Min Read

Twinkies seem harmless enough, my mom gave them to me in my lunchbox and of course I trust my mom. I kind of thought the Twinkie recipe came from some loving grandmother who wanted to share her recipe with children across America.  I was shocked to learn a Twinkie has 39 ingredients, most of which are mysterious additives to extend shelf life, or to create exciting flavors, colors and textures. What are these mystery ingredients doing to our health?   Do you like Pringles? Wait until you read the label of ingredients on a Pringles can, there is only 46% dehydrated potatoes the rest is fillers, preservatives, and oils .   Michael Pollan writes in his book Food Rules  – Eat foods made from ingredients that you can picture in their raw state or growing in nature.
