How To Read Food Labels


If it has a label, then read the label carefully!

The longer the list of ingredients, the more likely the food is to be processed.

Processed foods are not whole foods. So, the longer the list of ingredients, the further you should stay away.

These are some of the words that should send you running:

  • Artificial (anything)

  • High fructose corn syrup

  • Artificial sweeteners

  • Ammonium sulfate

  • Carminic acid (crushed bug parts)

  • Sodium benzoate

  • Ammonium sulfate (fertilizer)

  • Refined grains

  • Shellac (more bug parts)

  • Castoreum (beaver anal glands)

  • Gum base (from sheep)

  • L-cystine (hair or duck feathers)

  • MSG

  • Olestra


  • Sugar (there are about 400 different names for sugar…that is a whole other blog!)

  • Bleached white flour

  • Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil / Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
