The All-Natural Ingredient List

  1. Wow, this is really interesting! “Real” food still has actual chemicals in it, because that’s how nature works. The dichotomy between synthetic and “natural” is fascinating. But chemicals are chemicals, right? Would it make a difference to our bodies if we consumed fructose from a blueberry or fructose made in a lab if the compounds themselves were completely identical?

    1. The effects would be identical. However, there’s probably a big placebo effect if people know that the fructose they’re eating was synthesised in a lab rather than in a blueberry.

What are your thoughts on the issue?
