And You Wonder Why…All Natural Cupcakes Vs. Grocery Store Cupcakes

Smile, It’s Natural!

This is our tagline for a reason here at Ideal Dentistry. More and more people are re-discovering the benefits of eating natural, organic foods! You are what you eat is one of the best statements ever coined.

Just the other day somebody bought some cupcakes for a birthday party here at Ideal Dentistry. The thought was great, but I was stunned by the incredibly long list of ingredients! Here is a photo of the ingredient list of the cupcakes:

Really now, what DOES it take to make cupcakes? I did a few searches for natural cupcakes, and below is the list I came up with:

1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

That is 9 ingredients, not counting the frosting for the NATURAL cupcakes.

The “grocery store” cupcakes have OVER 60 ingredients!

Are you kidding me? 60+ ingredients?  There is something wrong here…

“Food” for thought.

Keep smiling.
