Ever wonder what’s in Hot Pockets? What is imitation mozzarella anyway?

You can buy the poster from boingboing website.

This can teach us how to read ingredients on packaging. Did you know that enzymes can mean monosodium glutamate (MSG)? (And that spices can mean enzymes and therefore MSG?)

Look how many kinds of sugar there are in this product: sugar, corn syrup solids, modified food starch (OK, corn but sugar just the same).

See how many salts are in here….

Then, oh joy! reduced lactose and reduced iron! How healthy can you get? I mean “reduced”!

And what is in “imitation mozzarella”?

An interesting media literacy lesson would be to find out what each of these ingredients are.
