Foods from the supermarkets?

I know that a lot of the foods from the supermarkets are laced with chemicals, preservatives, artificial flavors, etc. I've seen some foods in the grocery stores that are labeled as organic, and some are from well known brands. For example, Frito Lays has an organic Doritos which is made from white corn. Synders of Hanover Pretzel company had snacks out called Smart Snacks which are labeled as organic. I've seen other things labeled as organic too in the supermarkets such as shampoos and soaps. I was wondering if organic foods and products that are in the supermarkets are as healthy as the organic foods and products from whole foods and natural food stores? I was told to always look at the ingredients in organic foods, cause there might be a few chemicals added in even though it's labeled as organic.

Re: Foods from the supermarkets?

It is so tricky these days- foods are full of bad stuff...stick to the basics...try to eat as few packaged foods as possible. Buy organic oats, organic milk, organic brown sugar and have yourself a healthy and hearty breakfast...dont' bother reading the ingredients on all those cereal boxes- its frustrating and fatiguing. Good luck!!

cut the brown sugar though. organic or non-organic its still an extrinsic sugar, and too much of this is bad. brown sugar is simply white sugar that had been dyed. instead use fructose or honey (the primary form of sugar in honey is fructose). fructose is 3 times as sweet as sucrose, which means you only have to use a third of the amount to get the same level of sweetness.
also, cows milk is a waste of time. organic or non-organic it still contains casein, a protein that beyond the age of three most humans lack the enzyme needed for its digestion. this leads to imcomplete digestion and so a lack of absorption of the protein and calcium in the milk, and a mucous environment in the intestines which hinders digestion of others foods. instead use goats milk or soya milk.
