A frequent question:We are told to “read every ingredients list every time”. But how can we realistically do that? The lists seem designed to be unreadable and the lists are so stuffed with jargon that we can’t possibly understand them?
The Gluten Free Guy’s response: First of all, the manufacturers are required to include an ingredients list on every package but they are not required (and most are unmotivated) to make that list readable. They are not eager to have you know about the artificial ingredients they use or the fats and sugars that give their product its taste. Customers are expected to read every ingredient label every time to see if anything, but the manufacturers are not required to inform you when changes have been made.
