About Labels

Just to clarify for everyone (but especially the ones who are anti-label): “Low-carb” for me is not a label on a box or bag, but is a lifestyle based on serious research. Also, I have learned that:

  • “Low-fat” usually means high in sugar and/or undesirable chemicals
  • “Sugar-free” does NOT mean low carb and usually just means there is no sucrose but often has other forms of sugar, such as high-fructose corn syrup
  • “Gluten-free” also does not mean low-carb or sugar-free and often has added undesirable ingredients
  • “Low-carb” label on a box does not necessarily mean is really low-carb enough
  • “Dairy-free” is not necessarily a good thing (unless you really are lactose-intolerant)
  • “Non-GMO” may or may not be really non-GMO, but it’s one of the few labels I trust. After all our whining and complaining about food companies not labeling GMO products, why am I going to complain about those who do label their stuff non-GMO?!?
