Think you’re clued up on what’s in the food you eat?

While most of us tend to think we choose our meals carefully to keep the pounds at bay and our outfits fitting, it may come as a surprise just how many dishes we consider to be healthy are actually worse than the traditional alternatives.

Just takes a closer look at some of our favourite foods and serves up the facts about what’s in them:

1. All Froot Loops taste the same, no matter what color they are.

The Straight Dope revealed it, Reddit reminded us, and Foodbeast confirms.

 

2. This is what’s really going on inside a Cup O’ Noodles:

To be fair, the extra space underneath is there to let the noodles cook and expand evenly, not to cheat you of your precious, hard-earned instant meal replacement.

3. Twinkies definitely don’t last forever.

Sorry, but your stash of individually packaged golden nuggets is only good for about 45 days.

4. Grape-Nuts don’t involve anything related to grapes OR nuts.

Ingredients: whole grain wheat flour, malted barley flour, isolated soy protein, salt, whole grain barley flour, malt extract, dried yeast. So why are they called that? No one knows! Guess they just felt like LYING.
