We tend to wonder about new or unknown products in stores. We see our family or friends buying a particular food, and we think it’s a trustworthy one. However, there are products we all buy and use that are a lie.

Here are a list of commonly used foods to reveal the truth. Check it out on your next trip to the store!


1. Is American cheese real?


American cheese seems to be a comfort food as you don’t need to cut it slice by slice, and that saves time. In fact, those square pieces of something that looks like cheese actually can’t be called “cheese.” Kraft Singles contain only 51% real cheese. So when you next go to the grocery store, pay attention to the package — you’ll see the magic words “Cheese Product.”

2. Artificial eggs

One clever invention is the fake egg. What can attract you and also stop you from picking them up at the store is their low price. The so-called eggs are made with gelatin, artificial food coloring, water, and a shell made of paraffin wax, gypsum powder, calcium carbonate, and other things. The formulation of the yolks allows them to bounce when dropped.

3. Bananas aren’t that natural.

4. Naked smoothies are worse than Pepsi.



Naked Juice seems to be healthy when looking at its packaging with the hypnotizing words “No Sugar Added.” The truth is that these beverages seem to be equal to the most sugary of drinks. Even if producers didn’t add any sugar, fruits couldn’t contain all 61 g, which is 20 g more than a can of Pepsi.

5. Zero-calorie drinks are worse than regular sodas.

You might think that a drink containing 0 calories helps you to improve your body. But, in fact, it only helps you to put on some weight. If there are less than 5 caloriesin a drink, the FDA legally allows it to be called a zero-calorie beverage.The only beverage that doesn’t contain any calories is water. Others have artificial sweeteners that trick your brain and make you have more food to be satisfied, which leads to gaining weight.

6. Do Grape-nuts contain these ingredients?

Who doesn’t love saving time with delicious and healthy food, especially for breakfast? Unfortunately, Grape-nuts aren’t going to help because this food has nothing in common with grapes or nuts. According to Post Foods, the cereal got its name because they use maltose or “grape sugar” in their recipe, and it’s slightly nut flavored.

7. Beware of fake mutton.

Nowadays there’s a risk of buying chemically transformed meat from a rat, a mink, or a fox. To stay healthy and safe, these detailed instructions for distinguishing the right meat will be very useful. Try not to buy mutton from stores. Instead, go to a market so that you can see for yourself what you’re going to eat.

8. Natural energy bars


It seems that marketing specialists put the word “natural” on many “fake” products. Truly natural products don’t need this word. In fact, most bars contain sugar, salt, canola oil, and corn flour and are high in calories or are genetically modified. If you see a 100% natural snack in a supermarket, don’t go for it, and don’t waste your money.

9. Margarine as an alternative to butter

Even if margarine was thought to be a healthier alternative to butter, there is nothing truthful about it. Breaking this myth can start with the real color of margarine: it’s from white to gray. Also, there is no good proof that substituting margarine for butter reduces the chances of having a heart attack or developing heart disease. Its compoundsserve to increase shelf life and can be harmful to your health.

10. Fake plastic rice

This rice is made from potatoes mixed with plastic and then sprayed with a natural rice smell. Fake rice can be very harmful to your health as it’s hard to digest. After eating some rice bowls, you can feel like you’ve eaten a plastic bag. To distinguish fake rice from natural rice, burn a grain of it — see if you can smell burned plastic or not. You can also try to put some rice into hot oil.

11. Does wasabi leave a burning aftertaste?

If it does, know that it’s a fake one. First of all, if it were real wasabi, sushi would cost much more and could be considered a luxury food because this plant is the hardest one to grow. What you cover your sushi rolls with is a substitution of mustard, horseradish, food coloring, and artificial flavors that have been made from a kind of powder. Real wasabi tastes more herbal, which is why it doesn’t have a burning aftertaste.

12. Champagne

The only champagne you can drink without wasting your money is one that came from the Champagne region of France. If you see a bottle of so-called champagne from other manufacturers, it should get you thinking about the originality of the beverage and its ingredients.

13. Maple syrup

As with all masterpieces, maple syrup has its cheap copies that have nothing healthy among their ingredients. Look carefully at what you’re buying, and be sure it’s a pure maple syrup. The maple-flavored ones consist of a high level of sugar, fructose corn syrup, food colors, and flavors. So when you’re at the store next time, go for the slightly more expensive but natural maple syrup.

14. What does baby formula really contain?

In spite of the many infant formulas in stores, you can find hardly any fundamental differences when comparing them. This is because most formulas are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). “Ordinary cow’s milk for infants under 12 months is not recommended nor is it recommended to do various alternations to current formulas,” Dr. Robert Rappaport explains. “Adding a lot of water to currently existing formulas may be dangerous.” The only advice here is to buy cheaper formulas as expensive formulas contain ingredients that are not always good for a child’s health.

15. Will you still love Pringles after this?

The company once insisted that the snack is not potato chips at all as the potato content of their chips reaches only 42%. The slices are made with a dough produced from dehydrated potatoes. So the next time you take a can of Pringles, don’t forget about what you’ve just read.
