“Man's mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions.” - Oliver Wendell Holmes

Knowledge gained is never lost. As circumstances change, we just find new ways to use it to help us along the journey.

  Kind of rings true with the harder we work, the luckier we get. There just isn't a simple way to success.

Hey! I've been cheated!

Thursday, March 24, 2011

I picked today to let off some steam and one of my pet-peeves since I've been on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. The pet-peeve is the information provided on food products. We have this whole pyramid identifying what we need and chart after chart showing how much of which vitamins, minerals we need, but we aren't getting the data to really know what we are consuming.

I eat Dole Pineapple Tidbits fruit cups. Yeah, it's one serving of fruit. But hey, the only vitamins etal listed only shows Vitamin C (50%) and Iron (2%). What happened to the manganese, magnesium, thiamine, and potassium.

If I go online and check for the nutritional facts using Self's Nutrition Data
nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-
and-fruit-juices/2019/2
a serving of pineapple would give me like 46-52%RDA for manganese, but nothing, Nada, shows on the Doles packaging. For water soluable vitamins and minerals it probably doesn't matter as much since the excess will get flushed out of the system but what if it isn't water soluable? How do I track this discrepancy?

I've been cheated out of needed information and YES I'm annoyed because this is just one of many food products that use and it's not helping me to get a better picture of my true health.

Did I say pet-peeve? Oh YEAH!
