11. “Organic” Unhealthy Ingredients
Although organic food can have some benefits, many food manufacturers use the word “organic” to mislead people.
For example, when you see “raw organic cane sugar” on an ingredient list, this is basically the exact same thing as regular table sugar.
Just because something is organic does not mean that it is healthy.
Many foods contain unhealthy ingredients that happen to be organic. This does not mean that they are any healthier than their non-organic counterparts.
The Bottom Line
Of course, it is best to just limit processed foods altogether and eat real, whole foods instead. That way, you don’t have to worry about labels and ingredient lists.
Real food doesn’t even need an ingredients list. Real food IS the ingredient.
