Dr Oz: Low-Calorie Potato Chip Tricks
Dr Oz and food journalist Mark Schatzker took a closer look at baked potato chips to find out if they were really a healthy option for those wanting something salty and crunchy to munch on. Mark revealed that companies are actually using tricks to make consumers eat more chips.
Dr Oz: Chemical & Artificial Flavorings In Chips
First, companies use chemical and artificial flavorings in their products to make them taste more like the real thing, as well as to make you want to eat more. According to Mark, the synthetic flavorings are so powerful, they can make the food taste even better than the real thing. Mark had Dr Oz take a closer look at fake cheese flavoring and the real thing to see if he could distinguish between them. Dr Oz admitted they both smelled really good but correctly guessed the real cheese.
One of the hallmarks of food addiction is cravings that can’t be satisfied. Mark believes additives like artificial flavorings could be to blame. When you look on label, look for the words “flavorings” or “natural flavorings” in order to spot chemicals in fake foods.
