Fortified Foods, Kind of Dumb

The only REAL fortified foods are fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and beans, but lately stripping food of all nutrition, processing it into junk and then “enriching” it has become all the rage.

CBS News shows how food producers are cramming Omega-3’s, plant sterols and calcium into garbage foods like milk, yogurt and pasta. These Franken-foods are expected to rake in $60 BILLION in sales next year!

In Eat to Live, Dr. Fuhrman explains that enriching food does little good and that healthful plant compounds are BEST left in their natural state.

If you really want to know what is used to "fortify" foods, read the book "Twinkie, Deconstructed", by Steve Ettlinger. He describes the massive industrial processes used to produce the common food additives.
