I'm in Miami Beacch vacationing for a couple of days after a one-day conference here, so today, I'll refer you to an intriguing story from Mike Adams of NewsTarget.com about Kraft's Low-Carb Oreo cookies.
Adams, "The Health Ranger," contends that these cookies are "`the most ridiculous low-carb product' yet introduced to U.S. consumers."
I'm inclined to agree with Adams, who eloquently presents his argument.
"The idea of having Low-Carb Oreo cookies, however, may be appealing to many consumers who are attempting to follow a low-carb diet without actually choosing healthy foods. A person trying to improve their health and lose body fat has no business eating any cookies at all whether they are low-carb or not, and certainly these processed food cookies from Kraft are not a healthy choice," Adams argues.
"Sure, they may be lower in refined carbohydrates, but I am willing to bet that these Oreo cookies contain hydrogenated oils ( see related ebook on hydrogenated oils ) just like the high-carb Oreo cookies do, and hydrogenated oils are extremely bad for human health and have been associated with cardiovascular disorders, heart disease, and even impaired brain function."
