I often wonder why Americans -----and maybe other places------have come to except the unnecessary additives in the foods they eat. I can now find only one brand of half and half, without caragenean in it. That's a type of seaweed, in case you didn't know----and it shows up in Ice cream, yogurt, fruit bars, all kinds of stuff. Speaking of yogurt----how about guar gum, locust bean gum, corn starch----not to mention chemical compounds I couldn't even spell.
My wife, yells at me if I start to read the ingredient label-----"stop it, I don't want to know"-----is that the attitude we have all come to? No one asks why are they putting "SEAWEED" in my yogurt?
Just food for thought----with just a bit of locust bean gum for texture.
