I agree with the cream soup one. I never thought of powdered milk in chicken stock!
Ummm... really anything with HFCS. It's sad because so many products have it, but I usually find alternatives. The alternatives tend to be more expensive though. And it's sooo hard with kids. Fortunately there are organic pop tarts out there, and that makes life much, much easier. :)
Surprisingly, the only thing that grosses me out about cheese-flavored powder is the question of how much salt they actually need to use.
From what I understand of the process, they use the same ingredients as cheese and start making it in a similar manner, but then they feed the mix into a hopper before the process is done. Then they spray the mix in such a way that it becomes a powder.
Cheese-flavored powder is still something to avoid, but it's more the nutrition label than general principles.
I try to avoid all products that have MSG in them or an ingrediant listed in the ingrediant list that may contain MSG (it can trigger my migraines).
When a recipe calls for a cream soup I mix up some of my homemade chix broth with milk. I try to make all my soups from scratch and make my own beef and chicken broth.

Processed soy is SO bad for you, especially in large quantities. Edemame, or soy in it's natural bean form, is fine. Miso, fermented soy, is also pretty good. A little tofu in your miso soup is okay but shouldn't be a regular part of your diet. I guess processed soy is the lesser of 2 evils when compairing to meat but it's a pretty close second. Processed food in general grosses me out for the most part. Whole foods all the way :)
I shy away from soy almost completely unless I am eating sushi or on the rare occasion I will have a veggie burger. For better or worse, I've totally bought into some claims that soy increases cancer. I have a feeling I'm probably crazy.
Even as a kid, I considered that condensed cream of whatever soup was an ingredient, not something to be eaten as the package recommends.
Loosely, I'm on the one-ingredient diet. Realistically, I choose which processes to be suspicious of. (I do break the canned soup taboo when it's a choice between eating that and waiting until my container of frozen chicken skins actually manages to reach 160 in a frying pan, but only if my poor organization skills brings me to that.)
Now in a recipe, I consider cream of chicken soup to be powdered milk cooked in chicken stock.
Who else is against some ingredients and food?
