Chemical cocktails

Posted on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 at 11:39 AM

What is it with our society, where you can label something to sell to someone in a store... in my case today juice as in grape juice. Yet when I read the label, it says water, apple juice concentrate, grape juice concentrate, pear juice, sucrose fructose, vitamin C, sulfites!!! WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

I just want all natural 100% grape juice, every single juice in the store today was garbage similar to what l just described. Which doesn't include the juice "drinks", which I won't list here, I can't even pronounce nevermind spell the ingredients & all of the "drinks" should have hazard labels & NOT FOR CHILDREN on them because after water as an ingredient, number 2 is SUGAR!

But even the frozen concentrates are filled with additives, vitamin C (which occurs naturally and is readily available as a vitamin pill/chewable & doesn't need to be added in the damn juice). Those blend juices like pomegranate blueberry, has apple & pear & god knows what else in it along with enough preservative & vitamins to seriously harm a small child in a 2 litre container! I found one name brand orange juice, just 1 that isn't from concentrate & has no other additive in it. 1 juice out of at least 50 different kinds & more than a dozen different brands that say ORANGE JUICE... every other type has additives including colour... why? I've squeezed fresh orange juice before, it has a natural colour! I've helped crush grapes & that juice has colour as well. Why add purple #5?

This trying to eat healthy, trying to cut down on artificial sweeteners, sugar, chemicals, additive sulfates & sodium & additional vitamins is unbelievably TOUGH. There ought to be a law that if you're selling grape juice, that's all that is allowed in it. Anything else & you by law have to call it SWAMP JUICE or BOG WATER, TOILET BOWL SURPRISE... I don't care what it is named as long as it isn't in the juice aisle & it isn't labeled JUICE! DAMN IT, this mislabeled stuff is poison & there almost nothing else available! —More Fun God Bless
