Brings to mind those chemical potato chips(Lays?) from 15 years ago that caused everyone to have explosive poop within 15-30 minutes of consuming them. Whatever magical chemical they used was sort of an epic fail.

Most people don't know any better. Their screens have given them some bad advice, and they've taken it...

to be fair, other brands of low- and nonfat dairy products are available which do not contain any of those nasty things.

it's just really important to check labels, if any of this matters to you.

personally this has been one of the best things about changing the way we're eating. no complex list of ingredients on food labels = no "what the hell is THAT...and why is it in my food?" any more.

I agree. I look at ingredient lists all the time - though most of my food is just food :)

:lol: you beat me to it. and Cabot is what we ate when we were still doing dairy (yogurt especially), which is why i suggested that folks check labels and choose the brands that don't rely on stuff like gelatin and chemicals.

i did read recently that carrageenan (something i've relied on for a long time as a safe, plant-based stabilizer) may be cancer-inducing in higher quantities. reading more, i learned the difference between degraded and undegraded (food grade) carrageenan.

but since trace amounts of the former have been found in the latter, and more research is needed to determine whether stomach acids have the ability to degrade carrageenan, and since the EU has decided to take a precautionary approach and banned carrageenan altogether in products intended for consumption by infants (while the USDA has set no such limits)...i've decided it's one more additive i can do without, at least in the foods i eat.

This post is hidden because hoagie rarely has anything to say that isn't intended to provoke attention and/or a negative reaction, and you've grown tired of it (again).

Cabot dairy products kick ass! Plus you can test most/all of them for free=free meal at their factory in northern VT......plus I use to work on a Cabot Coop farm milking and shoveling shit.
