So, I’ve been on a kick lately of drinking soy milk instead of real milk because it doesn’t have lactose, and I’ve been paying close attention to how the foods I eat rate on the glycemic index.
So, I bought a few brands that I knew had around 4-5 grams of carbs per serving in them which is fine. But a few days ago without paying much attention I grabbed a carton of “Silk” vanilla soymilk.
I poured myself a glass of this stuff when i got home and was taken aback by how sweet it tasted.
So, I look at the ingredients and the THIRD INGREDIENT (remember ingredients are listed in order of quantity) is “Naturally Milled Organic Evaporated Cane Juice”, or as the rest of the world knows it, “sugar”. I am not making this up.
Hippies of the world: you are being duped! You’re drinking a glorified milkshake!
I am going to make a health drink consisting of “Naturally Harvested Purified Animal Lipids” and “Naturally Milled Organic Evaporated Cane Juice” and call it EcoFuel. It’ll be the next biggest thing.
