“Cellulose” in Processed Foods in the United States and Asia is Actually Sawdust

“Cellulose is used as a fiber supplement, a calorie reducer, a thickener, emulsifier, and anti-caking agent in processed and fast foods.  Cellulose has also been used to replace oil, flour, sugar and other more expensive ingredients.  Cellulose can be made from nearly any plant, but wood pulp and cotton are the least expensive and therefore most widely used.”

The article is surprisingly apologetic and does its best to minimize the fact that our “food” is actually stuffed with zero-nutrient, zero-mineral containing wood powder. You may as well be eating dirt.
