Never Thought Of This

Recommended Posts

I was looking at a bag of candy hearts yesterday because I always liked those and they were out for valentines day. I noticed that none of the ingredients have gluten in them (mostly sugar) but then I also saw that the product was manufactured in another country. It said that the product was made on shared lines with wheat and other ingredients. I wouldn't trust it as I don't trust some companies that manufacture their products inside the US to have clean lines. But this brought up a question for me. How much of our food is manufactured outside of the country? How does this affect the likelihood for cross contamination? Do I need to pay attention to where a product is made? Please don't just tell me not to eat any manufactured products because they are cleaner and then I don't have to think about things like this. That isn't going to happen. Okay.

I noticed that on the hearts. At Xmas time, I picked up some seasonal fruit flavored candy. The ingredients were fine - just what you would expect - sugar, fruit juice, etc. Then it said " contains wheat, eggs and dairy". None of those were in the ingredients. Didn't say "may" contain.

The only way not to eat something that hasn't been thru some manufacturing or processing is to kill or grow it yourself. I am leery of things with multiple ingredients made in another country that doesn't have very careful standards.

Just as with everything else I try my best to buy stuff made here. It can be really hard though. For example just try to find a can of mushrooms that aren't from china.

Anyway I do tend to trust our processors more than ones from some of the overseas countries. That said I don't do any products made on shared lines if I can help it.

well, I try to buy stuff only made here in Canada or the US.

I do not trust anything from China.

and the other day I saw a box of Chocolates made in Mexico and no i wouldn't buy it. their policies just aren't as strict as ours.

I will buy rice noodles made in thailand though... they say gluten free on the package and well.... they aren't from China. Maybe I shouldn't buy them, IDK.

I do also, Thai Kitchen, and have never had an issue with them. I like angel hair pasta and like that they cook really fast and are good with even just butter on them. My favorite 'comfort' food.
