Beware the Soy and Wheat in Hunt’s Meat Flavored Pasta Sauce !

I’m usually so good about reading labels and I’m glad I did read this but it was only after I put the sauce in with the meat. So ,no spaghetti for me! Yes the pasta is gluten free , but the sauce isn’t! There’s no good reason pasta sauce , i.e. spaghetti sauce, should contain soy and wheat. Something told me to read the label , but it was too late . Guess who’s having a salad ?

  1. Hi Paula, I noticed there is high fructose corn syrup n there as well.

    I usually steer clear of this . Would it be possible to get some input on this ingredient? You are so knowledgeable, I am interested in your information. Maybe I am not fully understanding the health aspect , I know you can help me!

    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Bonnie, You are right that HFCS is not great, but it’s in so many condiments and sauces that it can be hard to avoid completely. I believe it’s the highly processed, extremely sweet tasting and craving-inducing corn syrup in the HFCS that is considered bad for you and some products simply substitute actual sugar. I do prefer real sugar if I have a choice. I have read that the body can’t tell the difference, but I think they brain may process them differently as far as how they cause rebound cravings. In general it’s just best to limit all types of sugars. I try to buy sugar free barbecue sauce when I can, but most ketchups have either sugar or HFCS. I think the key is not to eat too much of it. 🙂 And of course the worst offender is sodas when it comes to sugar and corn syrup! Hope this helps!

  2. Good catch! They put wheat in all kinds of things that wheat should not be in. We have to check labels very carefully or I could end up dead. Glad you are okay! God bless!
