I am hoping to set an example for my family and speak out more. Ask questions that need to be asked. Will it make a difference? I truly don't know but for me it is better than just complaining.
Today when I was about to eat my salad I pulled out the Kraft Catalina Dressing to add to it. Before I did I decided to look and see what it had in it. I was surprised to see that the first ingredient listed was HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP - the first ingredient! It was followed by Tomato Puree, Soybean Oil, Vinegar, Salt, Water and some other stuff. By why did HFCS have to be the #1 ingredient. I decided to choose a different dressing.
I think maneuvered through the kraftfoods.com website and finally sent in this note:
I recently bought Kraft Catalina Dressing and was dismayed to find that HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP was listed as the number 1 ingredient. What steps are you taking to address serious issues concerning this ingredient. Until you start looking at health risks over profit I will no longer purchase this product
It is not my best letter but I'm at least I did something
