Fake Blueberries

Have you ever wondered what was in your blueberry cereals, muffins, bagels, etc...?  Well, if you watch the video below, you will discover that the answer isn't blueberries.  "Award-winning investigative journalist Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, exposes the deceptive chemical ingredients and dishonest marketing of "blueberry" products from big-name food and cereal companies. The blueberries, it turns out, are made from artificial colors, hydrogenated oils and liquid sugars."  Now most people are aware that foods like Kelloggs Pop Tarts don't actually contain blueberries, but I was surprised to learn that many brands of blueberry bagels, muffins, and cereals do not actually contain any blueberries.  Most of these foods have blueberry flavored "crunchlets". Basically blueberry flavored sugar pieces.    Watch this video and see what you've been eating.

O my goodness! How crazy! That's sad. I love REAL and FRESH blueberries! Guess I'll just have to make my own muffins! I have a blueberry buckle recipe I posted about that you might be interested in. And you'll know it's real blueberries :)
