Preservatives Are Bad.
Totally cliché at this point, but it’s worth mentioning.
Real food should go bad because it comes from a real plant or animal. Preservatives are used to stop this process and allow the sale of foods past when they would have otherwise naturally gone bad.
This idea is unsettling to us - what might those "preservatives" then be doing inside our bodies? Some studies suggest that they may be linked to cancer, heart issues, behavioral changes and a myriad of other health issues. We avoid them just in case.
They Don't Exist At Hu. Our Food Will Go Bad As It Should.
There are countless preservatives out there, but the one that always bothered us the most was dried fruit containing "sulphur dioxide." Needless to say, none of our dried fruits contain this ingredient.
