Everything comes from nature at some point. Except perhaps angel food cake that has actual ground up angel in it.

meat0918: I must be a salt heathen, because I can't taste anything different between regular old iodized salt and the pink Himalayan salt we got a year or two ago on a lark.


I was listening to some NPR show about fancy foodie farkers, and they were talking about an entire store devoted to salt. Hundreds of different kinds of salt.
And then I killed myself, so I don't know what happened next.

Organic simply means not inorganic

Since you can't eat rocks that's meaningless too

ginandbacon: I'm curious how you think sugar is produced. Or even honey for that matter, speaking of vomit.


Sugar is grown in sugar canes and it's pretty pure the way it is. You just dump it out, like a pixie stick. It used to be sold in the original packaging (it looks like bamboo), but then people decided that those weren't Pure enough or something, so now we buy it in bags.

I can remember my mom buying it in 4-foot canes, enough to last us for a while. Then they invented candy canes, but those suck compared to the real thing.

Kind of makes you wonder if there's anything in the labeling laws against calling a food "Supernatural".

But before the day I met you, life was so unkind. Your love was the key to my peace of mind. 'Cause you made me feel like a natural woman.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I'm sorry, but there is NOTHING natural about Cheez Whiz


Cheez Whiz is created entirely without the use of magical or supernatural processes. It's completely natural.

Delta1212: ginandbacon: "In New Jersey, U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Lois Goodman asked for FDA guidance "on whether [high fructose corn syrup] is indeed a natural ingredient or not."

In what universe would corn syrup not be natural?

Do you think that you just squeeze corn and syrup comes out? It's highly processed. High fructose corn syrup is basically corn that's been group up and partially digested.


I'm curious how you think sugar is produced. Or even honey for that matter, speaking of vomit.

I always get a kick out of those labels on things like chocolate bars or bacon bits or some other stuff that's bad for you....where they say "all natural ingredients."

It's that 66% who think that Costco-sized bag of Hershey's Chocolate is healthy for them.
