15 Companies that serve Wood/sawdust in Food.

I've known for years this was being done by a few companies and tried to avoid those products.   The practice first came to light when bakeries were adding sawdust to their Breads.   ... Here is an article link from CNN.com listing Companies and their products that contain 'wood'.

pepsi (Aunt Jemima), Kellogg's (eggo), Weight Watchers (ice cream), McDonald's, Sara Lee, Jack In The Box, Kraft Foods (Mac & Cheese[I knew I hated this stuff]), Yum Bands (Pizza Hut, Wendy's, Arby's, & KFC), Nestle (hot cocco mix [I'll have to stop buying this one]
 
If I'm going to eat wood, I would just chew up my tooth pick!

    Wait...you mean cookies that are the same texture and taste as regular ones, but are 50% reduced fat, have something other than regular ingredients in them???? I'm SHOCKED!
     
    Please. You can't get something for nothing. Anyone who thinks so is fooling themselves. At least cellulose is not a chemical.

    (C6H10O5)n - looks like a chemical to me.
     
    I'm aways amused at those who go out of their way for "all natural" lotions, foods, etc.
     
    Poison Ivy is a natural product.

    I fail to see how plant material is a chemical, but I'll let you win because I'm having a really good day and it's too much effort to argue about something so silly.
     
    Although by your logic salt is also a chemical, as is water.

    But wheat is a plant product and sometimes tastes like sawdust.

    That site was horrible to navigate. I tried to read the entire story but had to give up after 4 pages.

    You're right about that, MilwFoodlovers, slide shows are infuriating.  I hate them.

    You just have to click 'next' at the bottom of each page.   but, you'r right, it's a pain.   I clicked print at the top and printed the full article to pdf format and saved to my 'puter.  It is easier to read.

    Sometimes you're given the option of reading the story on one single page and have the slideshow automatically advance. This had neither and it was a real shame as I thought it very interesting.

    Everything on earth (and probably everything in the universe) can be called a chemical, since scientists have determined that everything is either a "chemical element" or is a "compound" made up of the "chemical elements" on the Periodic Table of the Elements, or a mixture of elements and/or compounds.  Plants take the chemical elements, compounds and mixtures in the soil, air and water and "manufacture" other chemical compounds to make the material that the plant is composed of,  while giving off other "manufactured" "by-product" chemicals and compounds into the air (like the fragrence of flowers or the odor of an onion-type plant).

    Good reply 6star.  I always shake my hear when someone says "XXXX has chemicals in it."     As you note, everything is made up of chemicals.

    I can admit you're right.
     
    But mjambro made it sound like it was equivalent to arsenic or something. It's just plant fiber.
