In general, if you recognize an ingredient without a degree in chemistry, it is probably healthier than the chemicals. Highly processed foods should not be the basis of anyone's diet (darn it ). For me, I had to cut apples pears and most dairy but other foods were fine. Others have issues with other foods like soy or corn. Beyond gluten, and lactose intolerance in half of all celiacs before they are healed, most foods should be fine.
