SL gets more of their imported products from the Abastos in Guad. Check the stick-on labels to see which outfit in the Abastos did the importing.

I'll keep doing what I'm doing and eating what I eat. I'm perfectly healthy except for an eye problem and being overweight. At 67, all this stuff would have gotten me by now. Although who's to say using a cell phone isn't the thing that caused my cataract?

The only Kraft product I buy is their grated Parmesan cheese, which is very good, Is that considered processed and toxic? Doesn´t seem to  be mixed with anything else.  I know they have a huge line of foods as they part of a huge conglomerate of food producers.
I guess you don´t approve of their pasta products?

Some processed foods are worse than others. Read ingredients.

BTW, Kraft grated Parm in the jar thingy is cut with cellulose particles. You can Google it. I eat vegan Parm, it's quite good.


That´s it, dairy and cellulose which is plant fibre.  I thought people wanted cellulose in their diet for digestion. So you are saying it´s a toxin? How could you get more vegan than cellulose from plants?

When this story first broke, the media declared the cheese was cut with sawdust. Which is a type of cellulose I guess.

The black bread in Germany used to have sawdust added as cellulose, don´t know if it still does.
Termites loved it!

I buy Parmesan that comes from Italy and I grate it when I want it grated, all the other ersatz are crap as far as I am concern including the ones that is real cheese but is tasteless and comes from some other south American country. f you stick to the real thing you get the good stuff.. If they do not import it any longer , I just do not make that dish any more and gofix something else. You can do a lot of stuff without parmesan..

Sawdust in black bread? Not the normal recipe. But yes, it was used during times of famine, which is why it was called "Hungerbrot", ( hungerbread). I know it was done about 200 years or so ago, but not recently, not even during the tough time right after WW ll, when I do remember my Grandma making fake coffee out of roasted kernels of wheat.

"British bakers reintroduce wartime bread". Everybody hated it, but it's back.

I really blew the cover for my lying about my age. lol!

Actually the last time that I know for sure in Germany was for the POW´s during WW2.  My uncle was a POW and worked in the bakery for the bread baked for the prisoners. Towards the end of the war, they even used it for German soldiers.
