In today’s world, we know how important healthy eating is – and so does the food industry. Food companies use terms like “all-natural” and “simple” to attract shoppers. A prime example is a popular hazelnut spread commercial that boasts their spread is made of “simple, quality ingredients like skim milk, hazelnuts, and a hint of cocoa,” while adding that it is made with no artificial colors or preservatives. The reality is that the product is far from healthy - more than 55 percent of it is made from sugar and the second ingredient is palm oil, which is high in saturated fat.
