    Be careful when you are shopping for whole wheat products. If you see “made with whole wheat” that should set of alarms. For example, Kellogg’s® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Pancakes says “made with whole wheat” , but if you look a little closer the fine print says “6 grams of”. Why not make the whole thing with whole wheat?

    And as we look at the ingredient list, the first item is:

    ENRICHED WHEAT FLOUR

    and the third item is

    HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP

    Now this might be a fine product for a lot of folks, but I don’t like the deceptive marketing and I don’t really want to eat HFCS. I need real whole wheat.
