Why do I title this photo, "Death Trap?"
Let's take a closer look at the ingredients and dive right in to understanding the danger in "foods" like these jellies......
HFCS--High Fructose Corn Syrup. Whenever you see this on a label, it's processed junk food that has HFCS creating "fatty liver" inside your system. HFCS is a sweetener made from corn starch that has been processed by glucose isomerase to convert some of its glucose into fructose. What actually happens is a separation of the natural bond of glucose and fructose--and un-natural processes aren't a sign of good food.
The Apple Jelly in this picture contains not only HFCS, but added sugar as well! Talk about death by sugar intake.
"In recent history, we've gone from 20 teaspoons of sugar per person per year to about 150 pounds of sugar per person per year." (Mark Hyman, MD CHECK OUT THE ARTICLE ON HFCS HERE)
THEN there's added corn syrup...more processed corn, more dangerous chemicals...
and fruit pectin, pectin is a natural fiber found in most plants, but in processed foods like this, it is often added in, synethic and processed with preservatives and other chemicals to make it "work better."
Sugar itself, whether natural or not, should be taken in moderation, as it is a major cause of inflammation that leads to disease. Put in chemicals and preservatives and separation of fructose and glucose and you have a death trap presented before you.
