She’s No Longer The One For Me

Argh! The other day I made an annoying discovering. I am somewhat ashamed I didn’t discover it before, yet at the same time I am somewhat angry that it is even something someone would need to – could actually – discover. There is sugar in my salt! WHAT? WHY IS THERE SUGAR IN MY SALT? Yeah, that is why I am angry. I never even thought to look at the ingredients of the salt. But actually I kinda believe I have before and this is not something that has always been the case – sugar in the salt – but I am not sure. Why is there dextrose in salt?
Dextrose is a simple sugar made from corn. There is no need for sugar to be in salt. The only reason I can think of is that the manufacturers have a desire to make it more addicting. I am sure that, if you have a TV or have any contact with social media, you have seen and/or heard that there is sugar in ALL TYPES OF THINGS. Things where there really doesn’t need to be sugar. And you may have heard, while you were watching TV or perusing Facebook, or scrolling through Twitter, that it is believed that sugar is addictive.
Some foods that are made to have less fat have to have additional sugar to make them taste acceptable, but again, that would also make them addictive. And, again, it is well-know that “less fat” just means more sugar. When eating foods that are known to have sugar, such as cookies or cupcakes it is understandable they have sugar. But it is annoying when food manufactures use sugar in things you don’t expect because there doesn’t need to be sugar in them. Like most salad dressings, spices, milk, breads, pasta, ya know things that are not traditionally made with sugar.
So, it is with sadness that I say good-bye to that girl I have grown up with all my life, or as long as I can remember. Good-bye Morton salt, I am disgusted that there is sugar in your salt and I will no longer be purchasing it. I will be spending my money on salt that is just that, salt. You are no longer the one.
Did you know there is sugar in Morton salt? So you use Morton salt? Did you, like me, grow up using Morton’s salt?
