A reader question

Sorry, I'm still on a slow computer and I can't cut and paste the question but here's the answer!

This link will take you to a sample of the food guide. You can see that each acceptable food is listed by section and then has () next to it if that product is gluten free, has corn syrup, benzoate, or other additives. The acceptable foods mean that there are no artificial flavorings, colorings, BHA, BHT, or TBHQ. Some members choose to further eliminate things like the corn syrups and that's why they are in ().
To me this food list is absolutely irreplaceable. Manufacturers hide so much that they do not list. The Feingold association researches each product via the manufacturer so I don't have to and then they publish the list.
If you ever ever ever use processed food or even basics like oils or milk this guide will help eliminate the hidden petroleum.

Stage one and stage two are in two different sections. It doesn't list bad products in the guide, just ok ones.

To keep updated you also get a monthly newsletter and emails if a product changes or as new products are added.

As a member you can submit your favorite foods to have them researched.

You get a fast food sheet with several fast food restaurants, a mail order guide, a book full of recipes, and several other pieces of information.

I will be a lifetime member simply because I want to support their cause and help with research. But, I also know that when we start testing stuff ourselves instead of sticking to the list we start to have problems again.

Thanks, Dana. I've spent some time at the Feingold site and managed to miss those sample pages!
