I'm not a huge mayo eater but when I do crave it on a sandwich, I want Hellman's - it's the flavor of my youth. But being an active home chef, for sit down meals I tend to make my own. This truth in labeling has me up in flames. I will probably still put Hellman's on my lunch sandwich, just as a few time a year I knowingly crawl in a bowl of comfort of Kraft Mac & Cheese because it's comfort I'm after and it's not a daily vicious habit. I will join any fight to make labels read true. I'm very sensitive to MSG in any quantity, but that's just one name we all know - it glutamic acid that is the culprit to those that suffer symptoms, of which MSG is the most commonly known. Swanson's happily labels one broth in their Natural Goodness line: NO MSG and yet when you flip the can over to the ingredients, right there in the chicken broth is autolyzed yeast extract - a glutamic acid! (Call it a Kleenex, Puffs, or a tissue - the result is the same.) The food safety industry knows these things but does little (read nothing) to fine & correct these blatant lies. Instead the food industry over polices the little people locally starting up organic or in-transition to organic operations, who don't have law offices in multiple cities & countries to protect them. Truth in labeling should be just that: The Truth. Large corporations should be held to equal if not a higher standard. Lead me to the movement and I'm all over this. I'm so tired of finding out that the products I am buying aren't what they say they are, especially when the ingredients on the web site are different from the can. Or the front of the product says the opposite of the back. I don't eat perfectly all the time, but when I'm cheating, I want to know exactly what I am putting in my mouth. is now following The Typepad Team
