Thanks Jessica for sending this our way. Well worth the read.
Big food companies have done little to help curb the obesity epidemic. By some accounts, they’ve done just the opposite by pouring millions of dollars into research designed to figure out how to get the maximum taste satisfaction and consumption out of their customer base. This article highlights three examples of the research and development that went into three well known processed foods.
With all the misinformation out there about food and diet, is it reasonable to expect a food company, whose goal is to make a profit, to know or act any different than the mainstream media, medical, and dietary schools of thought?
In many ways major food companies follow the current recommendations of the USDA by offering low sodium, low fat, and low sugar options. If it’s not the responsibility of the major food companies to help curb and address obesity, does the responsibility fall on the shoulders of the consumer?
