12 Secrets the Food Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know

5. Ice cream

Always read the contents of ice cream. Berry flavored ones are rarely natural, so it’s better to choose those containing only nuts, candied fruit, or gumdrops. Popsicles, on the other hand, are never made of anything natural.

6. Chocolate

First and foremost, pay attention to the contents of chocolate. The shorter the list, the better your bar is. Quality chocolate must contain cocoa, while any derivatives are a sign of an artificial product. In addition, it’s better to pick a bar that has cocoa oil in it, not vegetable oil.

7. Fish

A fresh fish has bright eyes; clouded and bulging eyes are indicative of an old fish. The gills should be bright red or, rarely, light pink (in cases when blood was drained through the gills). When you take the fish in your hands, its tail should hang freely.

8. Bread

Fresh bread shouldn’t be tough, so always touch it at the store. Note that plastic bags let the bread stay fresh for longer, but it will lose its taste in just a couple of hours in such a package.
