Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more

Please don't: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed colon "cleansers" with a clear "no" answer.

Is fruit and veg whole healthier than smoothies (liquidised)?

Yes: Because with whole fruits and veggies, you get the fiber which results in less consumption and quicker satiety (fullness).
