  •  This. Kroger's started marking things, (7+ / 0-)

    and Ingles has followed suit.

    Both places, the store-brand 100% whole wheat bread is HFCS-free.

    Kroger's has even standardized the labeling enough that you can tell at a glance if something has gluten in it. Namebrand involves nutrition label checking in cases where it matters, Kroger's you just look at the little standard label doohickey at the front of the package.

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.

    •  Store brand canned goods often (5+ / 0-)

      don't come with sweeteners or preservatives. I love it when the label says, "pinto beans (from dry), water, salt" and that's all, or when the 'fancy' ones list their herbs and spices and there's nothing I can't pronounce.

      Don't eat meat, so I always check labels to see if there's lard or tallow, pork, beef or poultry 'byproducts'. If so, they must also contain preservatives that can't be pronounced because the animal component goes rancid.
