guess the food based on the ingredients | 1


Can you guess the food based on the ingredients list? Here is a fun activity to see how easy it is to tell what you are eating based on what is in the food. | realfoodsimple.com


Wouldn't it be great to be able to tell what a food is based on the ingredients list alone? Unfortunately, it is not always that easy. There are a lot of foods out there that have a list of ingredients a mile long.

I always find it interesting to see how many ingredients there might be in a food. When I was teaching nutrition classes, I would do a similar activity. The kids I was teaching loved it, but the adults loved it even more.

For this first guess the food I decided to go seasonal. That will be your only hint.

Here are the ingredients:

Flour Enriched ( Wheat Flour, Niacin Vitamin B3, Iron Reduced, Thiamine Mononitrate Vitamin B1 , Riboflavin Vitamin B2, Folic Acid Vitamin B9 ), Corn Syrup, Corn Syrup High Fructose , Vegetables Oil ( Soybeans, and, Palm Oil, with, TBHQ , To Preserve Freshness ), Dextrose, Sugar, Crackermeal, Contains 2% or less of the Following: ( Wheat Starch, Milk Non Fat , Salt , Pumpkin , Corn Starch , Maltodextrin , Leavening ( Baking Soda , Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate ) , Corn Cereal , Molasses , Corn Flour Yellow , Eggs , Gelatin , Cinnamon , Corn Starch Modified, Nutmeg , Ginger , Caramel Color , Sunflower Lecithin , Tricalcium Phosphate, Vanilla Extract, Soy Lecithin, Cloves, Vitamin A Palmitate , Niacinamide Vitamin B3 , Iron Reduced, Yellow 6 , Pyridoxine Hydrochloride HCl ( Pyridoxine Vitamin B6 ) , Riboflavin Vitamin B2 , Yellow 5 , Thiamin Hydrochloride Vitamin B1 , Red 40 , Folic Acid Vitamin B9 , Blue 1
