Ingredients of concern in Munchilicious Granola Cereal – Dried Fruits (Pineapple, Strawberry and Apricot
Honey comes from nature- from bees, but it doesn’t have a health halo. Bees collect the dilute-sugary nectar of flora plants, then produce an enzymatic activity after ingestion, regurgitate it into honey cells and evaporate a high percentage of the water out of it, producing a super-sweet viscous liquid known as honey, according to Dana Hunnes, senior dietitian at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
Honey is mostly fructose and glucose — simple sugars easily converted into energy and water by the body. The only difference between it and sugar is the trace amounts of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, enzymes, amino acids and flavonoids, says Jenny Friedman, a Philadelphia-based registered dietitian.
Other ingredients that are in the product but not a major source of concern in our opinion are:
- Sunflower seeds,
- Pumpkin seeds,
