  3. No thanks. You know it wouldn't arouse as much suspicion if they simply left off the "ONLY".

  4. I totally agree. And the US is known for their top Word smiths and Marketers.

  7. I've pondered that question myself. It basically means "not good enough to pass American standards but good enough for third world countries."

  8. So i guess there should be added Calcium and Nutrition and all the Vitamins and iron in there then. Cuz you know they have it seh we Malnurished or underfed.

  9. I have often wondered about that myself too. Leon is right still, and in many cases, the food is good, but it has some blemish or other. Its still good, but when people have plenty of everything, its not so good. They won't buy these slightly damaged items. Then you turn to the newspapers and read of people in some places eating dirt, and you say, "Maybe they would want this slightly damaged food, after all, its got to be better than dirt!".
    I just hope they are asking way less for this fod than they do for the food that passes U.S. specs...

  10. Why not!! It is not the American food that we should be worried about, with respect to proper quality controls, inspections, and the general quality and health of such foods. In general, American foods are pretty good, despite the labelling and marketing re international sales, only. The country that we need to be focusing our attention on, with regard to quality consumer goods including food items is CHINA. A considerable number of items being exported to the west from the factories of China including pharmaceuticals, baby food, inter alia are not passing the various quality controls and inspection test, in comparison to American produced foods, and many westerners succumb to various types of illnesses and even deaths post consumption of such foods.Interestingly, many food items coming from China are not even subjected to inspection tests. Concerning the labelling of packages on the part of American producers, indeed, they the Americans can do much better, in terms of their labelling of packages, but one should not be too worried about consuming such items. Also, it is incumbent on the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Trade in Jamaica to make sure when food items enter the island from other countries, that they meet the appropriate guidelines and regulations specified and expected by the government. Nuff Respect!!

  11. very good question Tami
    I'm suspicious

    I'm curious about the ingredients. I have a box right here. Tell me if it's the same:
    enriched bleached flour (bleached wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, robflavin, folic acid) sugar, leavening (sodium bicarbonate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate) salt, calcium carbonate (a course of calcium).
    Goes on to say "Contains wheat ingredients, may contain traces of milk, egg and soy."

    Syrup says: Corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, water, cellulose gum, caramel color, salt, sodium benzoate and sorbic acid (preservatives), artificial and natural flavors, sodium hexametaphosphate.

    note that there is both corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup (which produces a lot of mucus).

  12. I hear "mononitrate" helps prevent colds

    by owen 2008-Dec-16 

  13. Yes, the ingredients are the same, but i think they put something else that they not telling us in there.

    by Tami 2008-Dec-16 

  14. I often wonder about that label too. I don't trust it! It's a conspiracy! I think they are selling the inferior ones to us, or putting some unknown chemical in it it influence us in some way!

  15. The issues regarding food will become even much more controversial in the medium term, when metropolitan societies start to export CLONED products, ranging from produce to meats and poultry to Third World societies. Culturally, religiously, and ethically, as a society and a people, we in Jamaica are not ready for that/this type of food consumption, but with global food shortages, as a consequence of prices and crises in various areas of food production, the cloning of certain types of foods for consumption is inevitable and may be the answer for starvation/famine in Africa and Asia. As a matter of fact, the science and technology is already available to produce food in this manner.Certainly,this is the time we in the Third World will be crying out conspiracy, where the developed countries are trying to control us via food science and technology.It will be interesting to see how we respond to cloned beef,mutton, and chicken for our protein consumption. Surely,this may force some of us back into our own farming/intensive agriculture and some limited variant of animal husbandry,like raising our own pigs, goats and chickens. Nuff respect!!

  16. Aunties are good people but I don't see the need to buy bananas from California

    by owen 2008-Dec-16 

  17. nope -_- wouldn't trust it at all.

    by Infidel 2008-Dec-16 

  18. maybe its the same ingredients but is the stale ones :D

    by pepper 2008-Dec-23 

  19. That is not even pure maple syrup.

    by Trinidadsdagay 2008-Dec-24 

  20. damn ... u have a point there. i mean its a good question considering that the Third World is the dumping ground of the US. I don't know...maybe they needed a demarcation to identify food that was made for export so that the tax can be tracked. I DONT KNOW!!!! AND I DON'T WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT ANYMORE!! IM SCARED. [shocked2]
