Two Puzzles for you!

I have an easy puzzle and I hope one that is a bit more difficult.....what are the following things - and do you really want to eat this? Once you have figured them out let's talk about why you don't want to eat these :)

cultured pasteurized grade A low fat milk, sugar, modified corn starch, high fructose corn syrup, whey protein concentrate, kosher gelatin, orange juice concentrate, tricalcium phosphate, lemon juice concentrate, lime juice concentrate, natural flavors, colored with annato extract, Vitamin A, acetate, Vitamin D.

And the second puzzle:

Enriched flour bleached (wheat flour, niacin, iron, thiamin, mono-nitrate, riboflavin, folic acid) partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil, leavening (baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, mono-calcium phosphate) dextrose, salt.

Have fun!


  1. I'm going to guess yogurt for puzzle 1 and tortillas for puzzle 2.

    We don't want to eat #1 because of the modified(?!) corn starch and high fructose corn syrup, although arguments against the pasturized low fat milk, sugar, and other additives could be made.

    We don't want to eat #1 because of the bleached flour and partially hydrogenated oil. Again, I'm sure arguments against some of the leavening agents could be made, but I don't know enough about all the ingredients to make them :oops: :?

  2. I'm guessing yogurt and crackers, and I agree with Brenda's reasons for not wanting to eat them.

  3. #1: sherbet
    #2: saltine-like crackers

    Reasons include the kinds of chemical preservative/coloring agents and the methods of processing these products. Wheat and milk would be good foods, but they've been stripped back and processed into less nutritious items. Ick!

  4. #1-sherbet
    #2-Bisquick or something like it?

    Scary, certainly. No, I'll eat something else, thanks! :)

  5. Hmmm...

    I think sherbet has egg whites in it, and saltines have no oil.

    So my guess is

    #1 Some kind of lowfat yogurt (Gogurt maybe? But probably not enough coloring for that)


    pudding (but I don't know if that would say *cultured* milk

    #2 white tortillas


    some refrigerated pie crusts have leavening

    In any case, it sounds blech!
