FoodIdentityTheft.com Alerts Consumers to Deceptive Product Packaging

WASHINGTON, DC – As the nation’s food integrity is under attack by profit-hungry corporations, and consumers are being targeted by deceptive packaging practices, Citizens for Health, has launched a new website, FoodIdentityTheft.com, to alert and inform Americans about misleading labeling on many food, beverage and health products.

Since 1993, Citizens for Health, “the Voice of the Natural Health Consumer,” has provided information about the threats posed by hundreds of everyday products.  By supplying facts, links to news stories and videos, legislative updates and more, the non-profit organization helps shoppers make informed decisions about the products they buy for themselves and their families.

“Many consumers believe that the U.S. government will protect us from false advertising or stop corporations from making unproven claims about their products,” said FoodIdentityTheft.com Senior Editor, Linda Bonvie.  “But the truth is, corporations and their lobbyists have a huge influence in Washington.  We as consumers have to protect ourselves, stay informed, and tell our legislators and government agencies that we won’t accept being lied to.”

FoodIdentityTheft.com will provide current information on many vital issues, beginning with the controversy surrounding the proposed name change of High Fructose Corn Syrup. The trade association for this man-made sweetener has asked the U.S. government to legally change the name of High Fructose Corn Syrup to the misleading and inaccurate name “corn sugar.”

According to Bonvie, “We’re not advocating the benefits or decrying the harm of this product. We simply believe there is no valid reason for the name change. It would only confuse consumers and allow food makers to conceal the identity of this product on ingredients labels.”

“Every day we see stories about food makers trying to pull a fast one on consumers,” said Jim Turner, Chairman of Citizens for Health. “Resources like FoodIdentityTheft.com are necessary to ensure that consumers are aware of the deceptive practices some corporations are using.”

For more information, or to arrange an interview with a representative from Citizens for Health, please contact Kevin Sanchez of Hollenbeck Associates at 415-227-1150 ext 110 or via e-mail at kevin@hollenbeckassociates.com.

Thank you so much for doing this, it is greatly appreciated.

I have already forwarded your e-mail to other people and will be telling people about FoodIdentityTheft.com

I don’t want high fructose corn syrup in ANY of my food, go back to pure cane sugar. Is’s not about making money, its about quality foods for everyone….

Everyone should avoid processed food products and stick to fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. All desserts and snacks are very suspect. Read labels very carefully!!

Hi: I use honey. And also I discovered Xylitol from birch bark and corn husks. It destroy the bacteria that causes tooth decay. It has one less molocule than sugar. Diabetics can use it. Theres even toothpaste with this product. check it out.
It is pricey but I alternate between honey and this. I’ve even baked birthday cakes for both members of my family, one Type 1 diabetis, and Type 11.
and other deserts.
Hope this gives you more to choose.

Thank you so much–you’re “keeping them honest”. The govt. cares about protecting large corporations and large donors–see Dr. Mercola’s daily columns (drmercola.com)

Thanks for the tip eyzatia, “Xylitol from birch bark and corn husks. It destroy the bacteria that causes tooth decay. It has one less molocule than sugar. Diabetics can use it.” Don

High fructose corn syrup is bad for us but so is pure cane sugar.
The least amount of sugar we take in our bodies, the better we feel.

Thanks . I’ll share with others, as I have a health Food store and am a nutritional consultant. I’m also a writer and author as well as have a radio show. We need to get the information out.

This is great, keep up the good work!

I am reading a book that has “Suppressed 1971 US report linked diet, disease” in it. I am intrested in that report if it still available.
It was/is heald by Citizans for Health but I don’t find such an org. CEO is Alexander Schauss

Dear Reg,
Hi. I don’t know which specific report you are referring to, as a number of books and reports were issues around that time, including John Yudkin’s piece against sugar, Key’s landmark review implicating saturated fat, etc. Alex Schauss was one of the early directors of CFH in the early 1990s.
What is the name of the nook you are reading?
Best,
James

I was recommended this blog through my cousin. I am now not positive whether this submit is written through him as no one else know such specific about my problem. You are wonderful! Thanks!
