Default low fat = chemical sh!tstorm

I have seen this meme posted around the web
& I have heard that some lot fat butter spread are as bad as eating a plastic bag because of their chemical content.

How true is this?

Surely low fat milk & cheese cant be that bad?

what are your thought & opinions on this?

It's usually true. Most of these foods are processed and contain extra crap. At minimum, most fat foods add sweeteners, and most low sugar foods add junk oils. Generally it's far worse than this thouygh.

I won't get low-fat sour cream, for example. Why add in 5 more ingredients? Fat intake is not inherently evil, and if I need to control calories I will eat less sour cream.

Low fat usually means higher sugar and/or salt content to add flavour that has been removed with the fat reduction.

And, is it low fat milk that is actually a blue in colour because of the fat removal and has to be then made white by the addition of a chemical, the same stuff they add to emulsion (yep) to make it white again so that people will drink it; the full fat milk, on the other hand is white and needs no additional whitener.

It's a while since I read that, so feel free to check it up online.


But yes, overall, the more natural and less messed with stuff is much better.

There's one other thing to remember with ingredients; they have an opt-out clause as long as a chemical agent is considered as part of the manufacturing process (? or another term equal to it), they do not have to include it on the label at all...and many use that to get around informing the general public of all the stuff that is in the product and some of that stuff would have people turn away in disgust.

The mechanical process, I think is the term they use.

Didn't know that. So the more processed it is, the more potential chemical agents that might come into play.

Oh yeah, they have so many loopholes they use to their advantage, it's astounding; this one was news to me, a year ago, I'd never heard of it prior to that...saw it on a TV exposure type program.


They can also omit to inform people, on the label, if a food contains trans fats etc, if that trans fat content is below a set percentage, for one product that's 4%...I did some research on it, after hearing about it; the funny thing is, it may not be on the label, however go to the website of the company and check out Q&As and other areas and there you find the real info on the content...for some products, at least.

Some of this may depend on the country as well but I was surprised to see it happening here because I really didn't expect it.
