Blueberry Products Actually Contain No Blueberries

January 21, 2011

An investigative report from Food Investigations reveals that many name-brand products claiming to contain real blueberries actually mimic their appearance with artificial colors, partially-hydrogenated oils, and high fructose corn syrup.

An investigative report from Food Investigations journalist Mike Adams reveals that many name-brand products claiming to contain real blueberries actually mimic the appearance of those blueberries with artificial colors, partially-hydrogenated oils, and high fructose corn syrup.

Leading food manufacturers called out in the report include Kellogg’s (Battle Creek, MI), Betty Crocker (Minneapolis), General Mills (Minneapolis), and Target (Minneapolis).

The Food Investigations report highlights the concern that consumers might be deceived of a product’s true ingredients when reading the front of label claims, compared to the actual fine-print ingredients list. Total Blueberry Pomegranate Cereal from General Mills was found to contain neither blueberries nor pomegranates.
