In this episode, we share some of the most common tricks that food manufacturers use in an attempt to fool consumers like you into thinking their product is healthy (or at least healthier than other options).
We know the majority of our listeners are trying to do better for themselves and for their families as far as healthy food options go and we want to help you navigate around some of the tricks that are common in the processed food industry.
This episode continues a discussion we started back in Episode 062: How to Read Food Labels — The Bad and Ugly of Processed Foods.
