Just because it is gluten free officially does NOT mean it is good for you. In fact, as soon as it has an unnatural, processed substance as an ingredient the food in question is absolutely not good for you.
XANTHAM GUM is one of the main ingredients in gluten free foods other than naturally mother earth made gluten free foods (veggies, rice, fruit etc.). Xantham gum is corn sugar that is fermented in a processing plant and mixed with xanthomonas campestris. It is a thickening agent, so something added to your food so it is fuller, looks better, sits heavier, and has a more palatable consistency.
I’m not trying to tell you how to eat or push any kind of lifestyle down your throat. I’m just saying to be careful and put the research into what you’re putting into that lovely body of yours 🙂
Moral of the story? Eat natural. Gluten or Not.
