This is why I avoid processed foods!

… an Odwalla Berries GoMega food bar has four teaspoons of sugar, and most of it is added sugar. Fooducate recommends an MRM Triple Layer Protein bar or an apple instead.

The NY Times reports on an app that helps recognize such fakers:

Just in time for the new government dietary guidelines, an app to help you adhere to healthier eating.

Fooducate lets shoppers scan a product bar code in the grocery store for an instant read on a food’s health value, represented by a letter grade from A to D. Once a food has been scanned and recognized, the app offers healthier alternatives or can compare two products side-by-side.

Just because something is expensive, or sold at Whole Foods, or comes in a recycled package, does not make it healthy!
