Beware of Front Label Tease §  Fortified, enriched, added, extra, and plus = nutrients such as minerals and fiber have been removed and vitamins added in processing. Look for 100% whole-wheat bread, and high-fiber, low-sugar cereals. §  Fruit drink = probably little or no real fruit and a lot of sugar. Look for products that say "100% Fruit Juice." §  Made with wheat, rye, or multi-grains = have very little whole grain. Look for the word "whole" before the grain to ensure that you're getting a 100% whole-grain product. §  Natural = the manufacturer started with a natural source, but once it's processed the food may not resemble anything natural. Look for "100% All Natural" and "No Preservatives.”
