Hidden Valley Low fat ranch dressing

Hi,
Is Hidden Valley Low fat ranch dressing unhealthy? I have been using 365 Organics ranch dressing from whole foods and unfortunately, I don't like it nearly as much as Hidden Valley
Thanks,
Jess

Losec,
I KNOW it's not healthy, but does it affect your health is what I mean. I think you misunderstood me. I was wondering if the dressing would harm you, I'm not worried about it being "healthy."

Re: Hidden Valley Low fat ranch dressing

hi jessica...i don't think you can die from this stuff...but, the vinegar in there is really..eww BAD..and, the spices and, seasonings...i dunno..these sources are not pure based..there are better quality dressings out there...if you wanna get more healthier, then like I said Gluten free dressings are more healthier...alot more natural..

ps: I thought white vinegar was used for washing floors..lol

Re: Hidden Valley Low fat ranch dressing

I eat it all the time. I HATE any dressing with any type of vinegar. I like vinegar in water but not on my salad. Hidden Valley is the best salad dressing i've ever tried. If it is the only "bad" thing i eat, i should live a long, long time.

Re: Hidden Valley Low fat ranch dressing

How could a mixture of lowfat buttermilk, oil and spices harm you? There's actually a miniscule quantity of distilled vinegar listed in the ingredients, so it's not much of a factor. I understand not wanting to eat dangerous chemicals, but buying foods because the labels say "healthy" or any other meaningless, undefined word just proves the power of marketing. What, exactly, is a "pure-based" source, and how do you know a certain product's ingredients are not?

Re: Hidden Valley Low fat ranch dressing

To me, this discussion isn't so much about healthy food as it is about fuzzy thinking. To be an informed consumer, it's important to gather relevant information and ignore what's irrelevant. For example, what does a food's cost have to do with nutritional value? Lentils cost 99 cents per bag - does that mean they can't be a good source of protein or fiber? Twinkies cost a lot more per pound than apples - so how good can apples be?
Also, gluten-free products are, by definition, simply products that don't contain a specific protein (gluten) that's found in wheat, rye, barley, oats. You can buy gluten-free products that contain refined sugar and hydrogenated oils - but they don't contain gluten, so they're "pure-based," whatever that means?
