Not so natural after all…

I keep seeing an ad on TV for Wendy’s food that advertized ‘Natural Cut Fries” and I kept wondering what that meant exactly. A quick search revealed that these are not so ‘natural’ after all. For example, from this web site:

  • Where does the natural come in? It comes in when the potatoes are cut with their natural skins still on. That’s it.
  • The fries are sprayed with sodium acid pyrophosphate, a chemical that prevents them from turning brown from two baths in frying oil — one at the factory and the other at the store. They’re also dusted with dextrose, a sugar derived from corn, for similar purposes.
  • And just like every other large fast-food chain, Wendy’s frying oil is dosed with dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone-based chemical that helps keep the vegetable oil from getting foamy after countless rounds of frying.

Suddenly I’ve lost my appetite, at least for fast food fries (although I will admit the do taste good, dang!).


They do have sea salt though so that MUST be good for you huh because it must be so much better than regular salt ? Or maybe not! Just what you need is more Sodium.

You are what you eat and if you eat stuff this with any regularity then the last thing you will be is regular (or thin).
