Just because an item is on the “health food” shelf, or calls itself “health food”, like Tiger’s Milk bars, does not mean that they will not contain partially hydrogenated oils…Tiger’s Milk bars contain partially hydrogenated oils. This product is marketed as a “health food” which gives more credence to the fact that manufacturers will lie and is up to the consumer to read labels. Stop buying a product and it will be off the shelf of your local supermarket or health store.
They are ignoring the health effects for the sake of profit.
The more labels you read, the more astonished you will be at the variety and number of places that this insidious killer shows up. Do your lifesaving (as in your life) homework and read the ingredient labels of any food you attempt to purchase. Manufacturers are now using “mono-diglycerides,” another hydrogenated oil product.
Deep-Fried Foods: The Manufacturer of “Free Radicals” …The Other Killer
Today, this information is beginning to penetrate the public consciousness. However looking at the raise in illnesses in the USA, the large percentage of obesity and the amount of doctor’s prescribed medicine that permeates 47.9 % of today’s population, it shows that we are not paying attention. We are not willing to give up our poisons until we are deathly ill, or it is too late. Recently, a news special covered the subject. And the one not so surprising piece of information in the report was the fact that most of the deep-fried foods served in fast food joints are fried in partially hydrogenated oils!
Now, deep frying all by itself is a deadly habit. The act of applying a lot of heat to saturated fat and then ingesting it has no positive outcome in the attempt by our bodies to carry out any of our metabolic processes. While saturated fat is fairly stable and it can take a lot of heat before it breaks down, it’s not all that good for you as the deep fried food itself releases “free radicals” in your system which cause damage to the body and increase weight gain. No matter what you use lard, or coconut oil, or butter… do not deep fry.
For commercial deep frying, though, butter is prohibitively expensive and that is the reason food manufacturers choose alternatives regardless of how harmful they are to the public. The absolute worst commercial frying is done by the fast-food chains, which almost uniformly do their deep frying in cheap, deadly partially-hydrogenated oil and fry and refry with the same oil sometimes a whole week, until the oil “burns” into a dark brown! Any fats that escaped being transmogrified in the hydrogenation process are now subjected to the deep-frying process.
They are ignoring the health effects for the sake of profit. Their behavior is both unethical and immoral. It is our job to make them be illegal, as well.
