That Sure is Wood Food

July 13, 2011

A class action lawsuit against Taco Bell has revealed that many food manufacturers are using cellulose (wood pulp) as a filler for processed foods.

To save money, many companies are now using cellulose instead of actual food ingredients. The industry claims that there is fiber in the wood and that it's perfectly safe.

Still, food additives need to be labeled so that people can decide for themselves if they want to eat wood pulp instead of beef in their tacos.
