Why Do Many Sweets, Treats, and Chocolates Contain Preservatives and Artificial Ingredients?
There are several reasons a company will use artificial ingredients and preservatives.
A few of the most popular reasons are:
- By using artificial sweeteners, companies can promote a “healthy” sugar-free product. However, many people aren’t aware that artificial substitutes to sugar are directly linked to cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
- To save money by using cheaper ingredients that mimic the taste of natural ingredients.
- To increase the shelf-life of their products.
Sugar and salt are natural preservatives, so the addition of artificial sweeteners or preservatives aren’t necessary unless…
They expect their products to stay in warehouses and on shelves for more than 3 months before they are consumed. Look at most expiration dates… many of them expire in years!
Natural sugar and salt are natural preservatives, so you do not need to add artificial ingredients or preservatives, unless…
…you expect your sweets and treats to stay in warehouses and on shelves for more than 3 months before they are consumed. Look at most expiration dates… many of them show an expiration date longer than a year!!
These companies need to make their foods uninhabitable by other life such as fungi or bacteria so they don’t spoil for ages.
How We Avoid All Artificial and GMO Ingredients
At Nuts on the Run, our sweets and treats are produced only days before they are shipped to you as we refuse to use preservatives in our foods. Many of our customers comment on how fresh our treats taste.
We guarantee that our treats will taste fresh for at least 2 months. After those 2 months, you may start to notice a slight change in the freshness if you have a developed palate as the treats begin to taste stale.
But good luck keeping any Nuts on the Run products longer than a couple of weeks in your house. Frankly, we’d love it if you could comment below and share how long you’re able to keep our treats in the house without gobbling them up.
Really, we’d love to know.
