Whether you have watched the Fed Up documentary or not, let’s take a look at these 2 products that are available in the grocery store.
Both of them are graham crackers as you can see, but one is labeled as “low fat.” I couldn’t help but tilt my head with interest as a few questions popped into my head…
#1 Are graham crackers known as a high fat food?
#2 If so, does that mean that they are “bad” for you?
#3 Is the “low fat” version supposed to be a “healthier” option?
#4 What in the world is the difference between “regular” and “low fat” graham crackers?
Well I investigated #4 and found that there is actually VERY LITTLE difference between these 2 products. First of all as I have highlighted, there is only 1 gram less fat in the “low fat” version of the graham cracker. 2 grams instead of 3 grams….Which brings me to question #5 Will that really make a difference? Also did you notice that the “low fat” crackers actually have 10 more calories than the “regular” crackers. And #6 what matters more in the grand scheme of things, amount of fat or number of calories? And #7 Why would the food company label the graham crackers this way if there was such a small difference between them?
And I could ramble on as far as Led Zeppelin would let me about food and products and big food companies, but the bottom line is this… No matter what it is that you are putting in your body, I encourage you to take a closer look so that you can make an educated decision.
