I'm lucky enough to live in a place that doesn't add Fluoride to my drinking water. I have heard a lot of bad things regarding fluoride & sls & for the past couple of years i have been using a fluoride & sls free toothpaste just to be... (more)
I went shopping at Trader Joes recently and saw they were selling coconut cream. Typically I buy the lite version but I figured I'd give this a shot. Unfortunately I forgot to read the ingredients before purchasing. 'coconut, xanthum gum, and... (more)
I was curious about whether anyone had some information about which additives in vitamins (fillers, stabilizers, etc.) might be most harmful from a paleo perspective. Have you identified any additives that will cause a reaction in you? I know to... (more)
Matt, I think the poster was looking for info on the ingredients she doesn't know. The medical names for common substances can be tricky to unveil. If she is Celiac, I can fully relate to this mistrust she has with our labeling system.
I see these additives in many frozen products to maintain color and freshness. I usually avoid all additives but I recently purchased Whole Foods 365 shredded hash browns and love them. The only ingredients are potatoes, citric acid (maintain... (more)
So, I am trying to develop a taste for liver. Liver experiment number one involved wasting a whole pack of organic bacon on a noxious, brown paste that smelled, and tasted, quite a lot like it had been regurgitated. I forced a bunch down while... (more)

Obviously I'm wary about eating anything prepacked/preserved, but this was like two bucks and could come in handy during dire straits. Tyson Naturally Hickory Smoked Bacon - Ready to Serve! Fully Cooked! I know it's from an industrialized, sad,... (more)
I love a little heavy cream in my coffee, but recently it seems I just can't find the good stuff anywhere. I used to get it at a farmers' market, or the Ronnybrook cream at the local organics store. Now my farmer's no longer there, and the store... (more)
soo annoying that it's so often added it to heavy cream. grrr. i see it in coconut milk too. i know it's a thickener. i think it's plant-based, but that doesn't make me feel better. thoughts? deleterious effects? how about guar... (more)
I swear I bought some heavy cream at Trader Joe's that was totally free of additives. My most recent purchase there has carrageenan. Not sure how awful the stuff is (if at all) but I'd rather have 100% cream. Anyone know of any "clean" brands?... (more)
Ugg...I have a stomach ache. Usually this only happens when I've been exposed to gluten or MSG. The ONLY thing it could be is some curry spice that I put on my sweet potatoes. I'm starting to wonder if there are "anti clumping" additives in my... (more)
It's possible--especially in spice blends. However, there are companies you can buy from that are very upfront about their ingredients (and gluten) status. Penzeys is a good choice.
How many times have you encountered it? You find something that looks like a winner, and then you see that ONE rogue ingredient that disqualifies it. It'll make a preacher curse! You find a 100% coconut milk, and then it says guar gum in the... (more)
