I really wanted Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but a healthy version. While I was at Whole Foods last night I seen Three Sisters Cinnamon Sweets, I was excited, I knew it was to good to be true. I should have read the ingredient label before I bought the cereal. Today I decided to pour myself a bowl of cereal, I was hungry. So I poured myself some Cinnamon Sweets. As I’m eating my bowl of cereal I decided to go to their website and look at what time of company they were. Their homepage says:
“Three Sisters cereals contain no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, or hydrogenated oil.”
Which buying items at Whole Foods I would think that they were nice and healthy. But then I start reading the ingredients & was surprised to what I found!!
First off Maltodextrin!! A food additive!! On top of that Maltodextrin is worse than sugar, it is absorbed into your blood stream and is stored as fat!! A company who promotes being healthy has Maltodextrin in their products, one of the worst things you can eat!! For more on Maltodextrin please click here.
Then I find out there is Carmel Food Coloring!! If you know about Carmel Food Coloring you will know it has been linked with cancer. If they put maltodextrin in their food I highly dough that they decided to use the natural carmel food coloring, which is just burnt sugar. If they did they probably use bleached, unhealthy white sugar.
Oh then lets add in there another food additive Trisodium Phosphate. Not only is it used as a food additive, but it is also used as a degreaser. It has been known to cause irritation to stomach linings.
For a company who is about being healthy and “quality” ingredients then why are they putting food additives and colorings in their food?! Don’t advertise that you are something you are not.
It is my fault that I bought the cereal and I am now out $4. I’m going to go back to making sure I read labels, I didn’t think a company who promoted such a great product I had the read the label. Just goes to show you that you can’t trust companies!!
