So why single out wood and say we are eating wood or trees? You can also say that we are eating grass, sun flowers, ivy, or any other of a number of plants because plants contain cellulose.
That is the point I am making.
Understood and point taken. You don't want to know. The news article shared information on wood cellulose being used in the mainstream fast foods.
I'm different Dave, I like to know if I'm eating oatmeal cellulose or wood cellulose.
Just like the difference between HFCS or beet sugars.
Protien from beef/chicken/pork/fish or insect parts.
Fat from olive oil or indigestible fat.
Artificial sugars or granulated beet sugar or honey.
Real honey or substitutes for honey.
Gluten flours or non gluten flours.
It's a matter of being informed. None of these ingredients are all together bad depending on what you are making, who is eating it and knowing the difference.
It's important to me to stay close to the original food source. Knowing what I'm eating and feeding others IS important to me. It's my choice.
