In their latest blog post, Jenny Sangler explains that most vegetarians rely on some kind of salad for almost every meal. She continues to explain that she carefully watches her weight, so is sure not to load her salads with too much dressing.
Jenny admits that an article she found in Organic Gardening changed her views on commercial salad dressings for good. She mentions that the author wanted to mention three important facts about these dressings.
Firstly, most of them contain unhealthy fats.
“The bulk of oils used in non-organic salad dressings today come from genetically engineered soy or canola, crops that have never been tested for its impact on human health” Jenny writes, directly quoting the article.
Secondly, the article’s author makes it clear that many commercial salad dressings contain very strong levels of high Fructose Corn Syrup. Jennie mentions that, in one of her previous blog posts, she details how this corn syrup is not only bad for a person’s health, but can also make them stupid.
Jenny then shares a shocking third fact – that a lot of commercial salad dressings contain Titanium Dioxide.
“It’s used in paint to make the color brighter and guess what? It’s used in most commercial salad dressing for the same reason. Awesome,” she says.
Jenny then admits that this additive is often listed on the label as ‘color added’. Jenny explains that she always assumed that this meant food coloring, but obviously not.
Concluding her latest blog post, Jenny sums up what she has just shared.
“These are just the top three problems with salad dressings. I strongly suggest you read the whole article yourself. As for me, I’m currently poring through my cookbook collection for great new dressing ideas,” she explains.
