Some vegetarians–usually strict vegans–will not consume sugar. This is because sugar is often whitened with bone char from cows.
If you are a vegetarian and you want to continue eating products that contain sugar, but do not want to cause suffering in the process, you have a number of options.
Your first option is to only consume products made with beet sugar. There are two major sources of sugar in the United States: beet sugar and cane sugar. Cane sugar is often whitened with bone char from cows; in contrast, beet sugar is never whitened with bone char.
So, if you want to completely avoid the bone char, you can do so by eating only beet sugar. The only challenge–and it is a big one–is finding out which foods contain beet sugar and which foods contain cane sugar.
To make things more complex, you can also consume a number of types of cane sugar, as long as you are willing to find out what the source of the sugar is.
You can do this in a lot of cases by looking at the nutritional panel on food before you buy it. If it says fructose or dextrose, the sugar is from a plant source (either beet or corn). If it says sucrose, it could be from a number of sources, which could include bone char-whitened cane sugar.
Now, if you are cooking with sugar, you can personally verify that is bone-char free by purchasing from the following companies, which have publicly-stated that they do not use bone-char: Florida Crystals Refinery, Imperial Sugar Company, Irish Sugar Ltd., Sugar In the Raw (which is also less-refined), and American Crystal Sugar Company.
If you can’t find these brands, but want to avoid consuming bone-char sugar if possible, you can avoid these brands, which have publicly-stated that they do use bone-char: Domino, Savannah Foods, and C&H Sugar Company.
All GoFoods Global products are suitable for vegetarians as they do not contain any meat products. Instead, the company uses textured vegetable protein (TVP) to provide the taste and texture of meat in flavoring only.
In a recent 60 Minutes segment, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta reported on research showing the dangers of fructose to human health. He says its “new” research that shows the connection between sugar and health, but in reality, the research is not new. I’ve reported on the connections here and elsewhere for quite some time and the 60 Minutes segment didn’t really report anything new.
Fructose, a staple in the diet of many Americans, is continually being pegged by scientific research as a significant player in the development and spread of cancer.
Furthermore, a growing number of studies are finding fructose, and the processed foods in which it is contained, to be as addictive as cocaine.
More than ever, the trend of healthy living is so popular right now. These are advertised in the basic products that people consume such as foods, drinks, and even in toiletries. But, among these, the piece that takes the cake is the healthy drinks, which can be bought almost everywhere.
But, with all the competitions and emergence of so many companies that produce the so-called “healthy drinks,” not all drinks that are labeled as such are good for you. If you are one of those who are into healthy drinks, now is the time to be smart about these.
While doing some research on High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) or as it will likely be renamed in the future to ‘Corn Sugar’, AP was hard at work spinning the facts. In the article Corn Syrup Producers Want Sweeter Name: Corn Sugar an AP Marketing Writer presents the same tired old arguments to counter consumer’s well founded concern over the corn based product.
The article, disguised as an informational piece is nothing more than an infomercial. Like the agenda behind those annoying TV spots from a few years ago where two people discuss HFCS but soon come to the conclusion there is absolutely nothing wrong with the ‘natural’ product, this article is nothing more than a last ditch effort to confuse consumers.
As it is with most facets of the NWO’s full spectrum domination agenda, a simple rebranding is all that is needed to divert the questioning public from the real facts. Henceforth, HFCS will now be known and ‘corn sugar’. Mission accomplished.
