    Most of us shop for food these days primarily in a Pure Greens Review supermarket. Within these supermarkets, we have a vast choice of foods - some fresh - but the majority in packets, cans, bottles, plastic containers and the like. All of these foods are processed - they are prepared and packaged in a factory somewhere and will last often in their packaging for years (or maybe forever who knows?).We've been educated by the food industry and the mainstream 'health' industry to look at the labels on these foods for the nutrition panel, and to look for the amounts of saturated fats, salt, calories or carbohydrates depending on the reason you're looking and what health issue you're trying to prevent or resolve. However, much more important are the ingredients in these products. Companies will create and advertise for example a 'healthy' alternative that is 'low fat' to convince you to buy it thinking you are doing the right thing for yourself or your family. Usually these products are loaded with sugar to compensate for the lack of fats along with a barrage of artificial additives that have been created in a laboratory and that our bodies were never designed to consume. This is a the problem. For me it has been commonsense to read ingredient labels on foods. I don't buy much in the way of packaged foods and those that I do buy, I have chosen because I know (for the most part) what the ingredients are. If there are numbers, artificial flavours, preservatives etc I generally leave them on the shelf. It's been a standing joke for years about how long it takes me to shop - this is why. Because my health is important to me.However we have realised recently after listening to a talk given by Sunshine Coast nutrtitionist Cyndi O'Meara that when including ingredients on labels, there are often hidden ingredients because there is no requirement to include additional ingredients used in the preparation of a particular ingredient that is later used in a product you might buy off the shelf. For instance, if coconut is used to make a packet of biscuits, the coconut may have been processed using a preservative or emulsifier or flavour (or all three!). When this coconut is used in the biscuits, only coconut is included in the ingredient list - not the chemicals that were added to it when it was processed initially. That's something to be concerned about! Because even foods that appear to only contain real foods, may be loaded with who knows what sort of additives.
