What next - Baby isn't Baby?

Most honey isn't honey:

http://www.foodsafetynews.com/2011/11/tests-show-most-store-honey-isnt-honey/

Seems our modern obsession with clean pure foodstuffs has once again bit us in the backside. In this case, it's "ultra-filtering" of honey to remove those cursed unnatural pollen particles. This allows sugar water to masquerade as honey.

Of course, this example isn't very paleo, being so glycemic. Does anyone have examples that are more paleo?

Please confine your answers to those cases which are motivated by hygienic muddle-headedness, like this one.

"They" are those commercial producers who chose to switch to faster, fast-rise yeast while still calling the product sourdough. If you read labels, there is still some slow-rise sourdough available but you have to search for it.

I just don't understand the Baby isn't Baby part. Am I being obtuse?

Who are "they"? Are you saying that all producers make sourdough that way (using yeast)?

Kamal, I'm not comfortable touching that one because of the hoops some couples go through to have kids these days.

Well, I think pasteurization is a big one resulting in milk, yogurt and kefir with no remaining live cultures. Even bigger, actually, is making it hard-to-impossible to get raw milk and honey.

And sourdough bread that still has gluten because of fast-rise yeast, although I'm not sure they did that for hygiene rather than cost efficiency.

I think just about everyone in the natural/alternative and/or Paleo communities is familiar with the issue mentioned by Nance, as well as the various synthetic -ides used on all non-organic produce. Probably the most fundamental alteration of our nutrient sources in the name of hygiene or sanitation is the chlorination (i.e. poisoning) of virtually all urban and suburban water.

However, the sanitation procedure that has received the least attention and thus the least resistance IMO is the widespread irradiation of numerous types of food, at least in the U.S. I was completely unaware of the importance of this issue until I read this article on Dr. Mercola's website: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/11/05/why-are-your-spices--seasonings-exposed-to-half-a-billion-chest-xrays-worth-of-radiation.aspx?e_cid=20111105_DNL_art_3

You don't have to be paranoid about every food you buy because of this, but if you buy foods that are not local or organic, I recommend checking if they have been irradiated, as the FDA requires them to be labeled as such. See the above article for the irradiation symbol.
