Real Food Fake Food

real-food-fake-foodWith so many fake foods in our supermarkets (and restaurants) it is hard to know what we are eating anymore–Parmesan cheese made from wood pulp, extra-virgin olive oil that isn’t and fish being labeled and sold that is completely fake and we the consumers are paying the price. Did you know that if you order red snapper in a restaurant, you have a 6% chance of getting it? If you order white tuna at a sushi restaurant, you are not getting white tuna because there is no such thingĀ as white tuna!

Food Integrity Now spoke with Larry Olmsted, journalist, food and travel writer and author of Real Food Fake Food. In his book, he uncovers many of the fake foods that we routinely eat that are fraudulently labeled that may be putting your health at risk. He explained how the fish and seafood industry mislabel many fish, including red snapper, grouper, sushi, salmon and more. And…it is not just fish that is fake, it is Parmesan cheese, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, beef, wine and more. (Listen here)

Olmsted stated:

“There are only 10 restaurants in the United States that serve real Kobe beef, all the rest is fake.”
