CCA Kelowna Chapter President Irene Thompson found this interesting video from FoodInvestigations.com As Celiacs we have become label watchers, but now more than ever we also have to be atuned to deceptive marketing practices where what appears in the commercial or on the box is not necessarily what’s in the product.

The blueberries found in blueberry bagels, cereals, breads and muffins are REAL blueberries right? Wrong! 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.
