This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Walmart has become the nation’s grocer, but much of what is sold in the behemoth’s aisles wouldn’t see light in Whole Foods. Isaac Pino:
Whole Foods bans roughly 54% of Wal-Mart’s fare due to the presence, in its words, of “unacceptable ingredients for foods.” These 78 banned ingredients include everything from recognizable sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup to the tongue-tying dimethylpolysiloxane.
Good rule. If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it.
