Know Your Ingredients

How well do you know what’s in the foods you are eating?  Do you read labels? One of the key ingredients to optimal health is to know what you are putting in your body.

Can you name this product:

water, soybean oil, sugar, vinegar, food starch-modified,salt, cellulose gel (microcrystaline cellulose), mustard flour, egg white, artificial color, sodium caseinate, xanthum gum, cellulose gum, spice, paprika, natural flavor, betacarotene (color)

*Ingredients are listed from the largest quantity to the smallest.

Answer:  Miracle Whip

Next to water, soybean oil makes up the majority of Miracle Whip. Regardless to what you may have heard, soy is NOT a health food. Soy is higher in phytoestrogens than just about any other food source. Phytoestrogens are plant-based estrogens that mimic estrogen in our bodies. The leading cause of breast cancer, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, infertility, and low libido is estrogen, or estrogen dominance. Why would you want to add more estrogen to your body?  There are many other dangers of soy.  I would suggest you research for yourself.

Take the time to read the labels and research the ingredients. You only get one body….take care of it!
