Grocery Store Stereotypes
4 Grocery Store Foods That Could Be Fake
Packaged food products aren't always what they appear to be — in fact, some of your favorite foods might be mislabeled or diluted or filled with cheap additives used by manufacturers to cut costs, says the nonprofit scientific organization U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention. USP, which keeps a free public database of food-ingredient fraud to which it has just added almost 800 new foods, is warning consumers that the level of so-called food fraud is up by 60 percent this year.
According to USP, "Food fraud is a collective term that encompasses the deliberate substitution, addition, tampering or misrepresentation of food, food ingredients or food packaging, or false or misleading statements made about a product for economic gain." It also includes "the fraudulent addition of nonauthentic substances or removal or replacement of authentic substances without the purchaser's knowledge for economic gain."
Here are some of the top foods on the USP's fraud list from around the world.
