Simply speaking, If it has a label, avoid it!.
The longer the list of ingredients, the further you should stay away.
A simple way of deciding if the product is healthy or not is the 3 R’s principle
- Can you READ and understand all of the ingredients?
- Are all of the ingredients REAL food?
- Could you REPRODUCE this at home yourself?
Read the ingredients list first, ingredients are listed in order of weight so the ingredient listed first is present in the largest amount. So if sugar is the first ingredient it means that sugar is the main ingredient.
