They allege that the claims on boxes of Cheerios Protein could mislead reasonable consumers into thinking that it’s a higher-protein alternative to regular Cheerios. Judge Thelton Henderson of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled on August 10 that this lawsuit, which accuses General Mills of violating the federal Nutrition Labeling and.

(Reuters) A federal judge has ruled that General Mills Inc (GIS.N) must face a lawsuit claiming it tricked consumers by marketing Cheerios Protein as a high-protein alternative to regular. Cheerios Protein Subject of Consumer Fraud Class Action Lawsuit. November 12 2015 by Lucy Campbell.

Santa Clara, CA: A consumer fraud class action lawsuit has been filed against General Mills alleging the cereal manufacturer misleads customers about its popular cereal Cheerios Protein. Filed in federal court, the lawsuit asserts that a side by side comparison of. General Mills has settled a lawsuit brought by a DC-based consumer watchdog three years ago over its label on Cheerios Protein’s packaging. The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) alleged Cheerios Protein has 17 times as much sugar as the original Cheerios, thus marketing the product as a high-protein alternative was misleading. Lawsuit: Protein Cheerios misleads consumers By Roberto A. Ferdman • Washington Post The good news is that the more accurate comparison means there isn’t quite as much extra sugar as it.

The nonprofit points out in the lawsuit that for the 11 grams of protein per serving stamped on the front of the boxes of Cheerios Cinnamon Almond Protein and Cheerios Oats and Honey Protein, only seven grams is actually from the cereal, while four grams comes from added milk. The lawsuit was filed by the consumer advocacy group, Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), claiming that Cheerios Protein has just “irrelevantly” more protein than usual Cheerios, yet considerably more elevated amounts of sugar. The lawsuit alleges Golden Valley-based General Mills falsely markets Cheerios Protein as being much higher in protein than original Cheerios, with the Center for Science in Public Interest (CSPI), which filed the lawsuit, saying it only has a “smidgen” more. Cheerios Protein Class Action Lawsuit. This lawsuit alleges that General Mills falsely and misleadingly marketed Cheerios Protein cereal as a high protein alternative to Cheerios, in violation of the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and state business codes.

Minneapolis based General Mills, Inc. ( GIS) is involved in the international production, marketing and. In the federal class action suit, filed in the Northern District of California, CSPI cites its side-by-side comparison of Original Cheerios and Cheerios Protein as evidence that General Mills is marketing Cheerios Protein as a “high protein, healthful alternative to Cheerios” when it does not contain much more protein than Original Cheerios.

  • I love being informed of these types of things but what can I eat????? I can’t walk into a walmart the only supermarket in my town and find anything that isn’t poison. I just would like an answer of what I can eat. And there is more mystery going to a farmers market. I don’t know what that farmer sprayed on his crops any more than a super market. But you do get a better deal and fresher products I guess when the markets open 3 months of the year… The United States may not have people lay dead because of starvation but we have no options for nutrition at least in rural communities.

  • That is why it is helpful to read the label. Labels tell you how much product is in the container. Labels tell you almost everything about the product, including the number of servings, amount per serving, vitamins, minerals, etc. If you are not reading the label and just buying the biggest package, that is no one’s fault but your own. And really, a see-through side so you can tell how full it is? What would that tell you without reading the label? Oh, and where did you find out that of all biologicals, only protein powder is immune from the sunlight? I would love to see that data…the prospects for both sunscreen and spaceflight are staggering!

    I certainly am all for reducing packaging. It would save billions of tons of garbage every year. But that is not what makes the product much more expensive, just more damaging to our environment and a waste of resources. The higher price has more to do with conning people into thinking they need these products in the first place. Of course, they are overpriced!

    I just happened to have a container of protein powder in my cupboard and it costs $2.51 per 26g of protein. Boneless chicken breasts sell for less than that for a pound in NC. A pound has over 90 grams of protein. I realize that this cost comparison is not valid for every protein powder, but Walmarts are everywhere and carry frozen. My point is only that taking these “supplements” instead of eating food has never been validated by scientific studies.

    You guys are smart. I have listened to dozens of your “Ring of Fire” shows. Sure, you raise your voices to get people’s attention, but that’s the name of the game. The problem with this one is that it is, for the most part, way too similar to the whiny titty babyTrumpamzee in charge saying that the Big Mac he got wasn’t the same size as the one on the poster. Please don’t make up your own facts, it’s not good for anyone. And: READ THE LABEL!

  • And who are the EPA? Sometimes the people on these boards are from Monsanto or other companies just so that they can say these foods are safe. The FDA is another untrustworthy source for health. As consumers we need to look into these foods ourselves!!! You cannot trust anyone affiliated with the food industry, especially packaged items. It’s sad, but these industries make a lot of money and they don’t want this to stop.

  • I am a 4th generation farmer. And I have a couple things I would like to say.

    1. Ask me or any farmer questions. Don’t assume we are so naive. We have agronomists, degrees, licenses, and tons of other regulations we live by and follow. Seriously, ask questions to the people that deal with it all day everyday. I’m not paid by anyone to say anything.

    2. Read the label of glyphosate! It is misuse of the product to desiccate cereal grains for human use. Only for animal feed is it approved.

    3. I know this goes against all popular fear based studies, but we use 7 times less weed killer on our round up ready (glyphosate resistant) sugar beets. Not to mention, those previous chemicals were far more toxic. Things like upbeet, starane, stinger, and matrix were used often all together before. Now it is simply glyphosate sprayed 7 times less.

    4. Farms Are Businesses. The idea that we are all about money…….. well, it’s sorta true. The market is competitive and if you are not being the best business you can be you will fail and be bought by a better farmer. It’s simple economics. But, on the other hand the better the farm ( business ), the mare able to buy into new more efficient technology. I’m writing this as my tractor drives itself. AI is on farms and new technology is coming out every year to better our sustainability.

    5. Most people are 2 or more generations removed from farming background. No wonder no one knows how farming is done anymore and they have no one to turn to to ask the real questions. So, we turn to our smart phones and headlines like this catch our eye. Most don’t know any different, so they believe…….

    6. Seriously, ask me or a real farmer questions.

  • If you buy any products from General Mills, you absolutely don’t care at all about your health or the health of your kids. Don’t worry about getting the government to waste time to put a label on it, it’s poison!

  • As far as im concerned, anyone that advocates it being in food, should be brought up for treason against the u.s. and world. Its feaking nuts.

  • Yep, 80 bowls a day for 80 years will give you a.0001% chance of cancer. OMG, hide the kids! its the end of days.
    30,000 mg a day may gives rats cancer, so these guys say that 1.4 mg in a human child is dangerous.

  • As a daily Vitamin Water consumer, I think it is important to remember that moderation is key (as it was said in the video). As someone who works in a warehouse and sweats a heck of a lot and always forgets to take vitamin supplements, this is the perfect thirst quencher and daily intake of essential vitamins for me…especially in this pandemic time!

  • There are natural organic pesticides herbicides and fertilizers and Farmers need to research it and use safe products and stop causing harm to fellow Americans

  • Make glyphosate a treat? Is that woman receiving a check from Monsanto to say that? OMG! This is sad, do not feed your babies glyphosate period, no level is safe! I hope she enjoys her treats of poisoning and gets cancer for misleading people. Wow! I am in a lawsuit that proves Monsanto did this knowing it would cause a environmental health epidemic and even had a hit squad to kill anyone who opposed their plan of controlling the health for profit of the health care industry! Time to wake up!

  • GLYPHOSATE FOUND IN CHILDHOOD VACCINES MOMS & SCIENTISTS DEMAND FDA & CDC TEST VACCINES FOR GLYPHOSATE https://www.momsacrossamerica.com/glyphosate_in_childhood_vaccines

  • keep in mind this is fox news thats why they let their kids eat this stuff and thats why they are trying to convince us to eat it. Even if it is in small amounts poison is poison and its main purpose is to kill thats why its found in Roundup. the media keeps doing this thing where it insults are intelligence by thinking we take anything they say at face value and we dont.

  • If only Amarica had an agency to prevent this type of poison from entering our children’s food; ohhhh ya we did…. Thanks repugnetons for cutting the EPA budget!!!

  • Glyphosate was originally patened in 1964 as a chelator of b vit., and minerals. A foreign country devised it. Then someone else patened in 1964. Its called the fleecing of america. Get your guts cleaned out. Use passion flower tea, activated charcoal, and or fulvic humic acid used for human consumption and dandelion root. Glyphosate ruins the kidney and liver, then it all goes, and the pancrease needs those b vitamins. Go low to no carbs from wheat grain products. Buy organic if can. Take care.i wonder how many monsanto are investing in the pharmaceutical industry for diabetes, kidney and liver foundations. Take care. And if they cant get you with the glyphosate, they do it with maltodextrin. It spikes the insulin higher and faster than sugar. It wears out the pancrease.

  • How about instead of cutting it down never eat it and boycott that crap, we dont need to give them a penny to kill people with cancer, this is man made engineered madness, monsanto will be shut down!

  • How can something designed to kill life ever be considered safe for consumption in the first place? Use common sense for crying out loud.

  • Bye, Bye Bees. Glyphosate perturbs the gut microbiota of honey bees. Increased mortality of honey bee colonies has been attributed to several factors but is not fully understood. The herbicide glyphosate is expected to be innocuous to animals, including bees, because it targets an enzyme only found in plants and microorganisms. However, bees rely on a specialized gut microbiota that benefits growth and provides defense against pathogens. Most bee gut bacteria contain the enzyme targeted by glyphosate, but vary in whether they possess susceptible versions and, correspondingly, in tolerance to glyphosate. Exposing bees to glyphosate alters the bee gut community and increases susceptibility to infection by opportunistic pathogens. Understanding how glyphosate impacts bee gut symbionts and bee health will help elucidate a possible role of this chemical in colony decline.  https://www.pnas.org/content/115/41/10305

  • These kind of conversation setups are even more toxic than the roundup. Especially this smile: 5:30 after dodging this bullet where she acknowledges it sounds like a death sentence: 5:10
    Well-played Fox, except that glyphosate shouldn’t be in the foods to begin with.
    They engineered their food plants to not die from the glyphosate but they could have also gone a step further and prevent build-up/absorbtion of the glyphosate in the foods. But of course, that’d just be counterproductive in the grand scheme of things, right?

  • Roundup caused an alteration of the Firmicutes to Bacteroidetes ratio.
    An environmental concentration of Roundup has a sex-dependent impact on rat gut microbiome.

  • This is horrible! It’s poison! Don’t eat it any of it. The News and media lie to parents so they don’t drop it sails. Please don’t fall for it. This nutritionist isn’t a good one!

  • all tell tale signs of manipulation, someone is really loading on this stock now. The Beyondmeat is not able to defend itself during mandated gag order by FDA, this is just stupid.

  • I so agree with this lawsuit. It is getting worse by the year. Especially with the necessary toilet paper. The rolls are fluffier and the double roll has the same number of sheets as a single roll. Which I don’t think can be purchased anymore.

  • How many grass hopper left after the councils spray this crap around our coastal area = none there used to thousands,Poole Dorset UK!

  • But is the net weight listed accurate to the contents and/or does that include the container weight? If it includes the overly large container then yes that would indeed be deceptive.

  • Fast Money should be a little more skeptical. The Hexane used for protein extraction won’t remain in the end product so it’s actually healthier and safer than actual meat. On top of that, it’s very obvious why the stock is so overvalued, hype, small float, and short squeezes, that doesnt mean it’s safe to short though, because another short squeeze could come. However yes it’s very overvalued and will go down in price eventually, especially around when the lock up period ends.

  • I don’t drink vitaminwater but i do take vitamins since I know my diet can be limited i only take half the reccomended dose cuz I know there is no point in getting too many vitamins. Now im wondering how much sugar are in these gummys…

  • Democracy Now independently tested the amount of glysophate in cheerios and found out that it was a 1000 to 2000 parts per billion not the 60 ppl that the EPA said their in bed with Monsanto like the rest of Congress. All that matters is the money to these pigs and dont listen to this ignorant women she has no idea of what shes talking about

  • Yes, the meat industry hires an army of experts to say that meat is good for you and that their competitor’s product is bad for you. My guess is that Beyond’s price legitimately represents potential.

  • Brew: telling me how much vitamin is in ONE orange
    Me: *knowing that eat like 20 oranges in a day every time i get oranges” (. )>

  • Yeah if you haven’t realized the cancer is good for the economy as a lot of big corporations make about a 1/2 a million dollars just off the poisons that they infuse cancer patients with during their so called treatment really increases the quality of life as they die in radiation sickness before the cancer kills them

  • This crap will continue until those responsible will be held CRIMINALLY responsible. Financial penalties are merely written off as a cost of doing business.

  • Round Up was released by Monsanto in 1974 and The National Center For Biotechnology Information started keeping records on childhood cancers one year later in 1975. Draw your own conclusions.

  • It is obvious this was a hit piece put into play by those on the side of shorts. And that folks is how the pros do it. There is going to be a lot more of these media pieces on both sides. One fact nobody can argue with is the stock valuation is ridiculous and this has a lot more downside ahead. The bigger picture is investors are getting desperate for returns in this retiring bull market so these one hit wonders are going to be around for just a little longer before the larger correction kicks in

  • So they want us to cut back on our daily intake of weed killer! I’m Boycotting All their Products! They need to remove all this crap from the grocery stores, I don’t care if there are traces of it in the product!

  • American media in a nutshell….Sit a few smucks in a professional setting with suit and tie having their strings pulled by the rich and powerful. People will buy into it because other medias have conditioned us to assume that a con man looks like a pimp and not like these puppets and they’re string pullers

  • Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • General Mills & Kellogs are quoting EPA regulatory safety levels when they contribute to paying the EPA year after year to raise said levels. What a joke.

  • “Doesn’t have money?” Packaged, processed foods are a lot more expensive than fresh, whole foods! Want to save money? Buy fresh, and cook from scratch: there are thousands of very simple and quick recipes.

  • Are there limits as to how much Roundup we are able to safely consume?

    There are safe guidelines as to how to use and apply roundup. But are there guidelines as to how bad it is for you if you eat foods that roundup was sprayed on?

    I ask because it’s in mostly everything we’ve been eating for 2 decades. It’s in the animal meat we consume too, animals are fed grains that were sprayed with roundup. It’s on every vegetable that isn’t organic, and there’s no proof that roundup isn’t on organic produce too. What are the consequences for eating all these foods everyday that we’re treated with roundup? There’s no confidence anymore in our food chain.

  • It’s the serving size. It doesn’t matter how full or empty the tub is, as long as you get the proper amount of serving sizes from the container

  • So did they actually find harmful chemicals in the finished product? This news piece is totally useless as it didn’t address the claims of the “consumer group”.

  • This video seems very biased. I always advocate for a mostly plant-based whole foods diet (and listening to your body for your individual protein needs, which is different for everyone). But to clear up a few things here… Beyond meat issued a statement clearing up that they actually use water (not hexane) to separate the plant protein. And if we are going to talk about reproductive health (and a lot of other health issues), we should address that a factory farmed (not pasture-raised) beef burger is proven to be carcinogenic and the antibiotics in hormones in that have way more of an effect than a Beyond meat burger…so having one of these meat alternatives on occasion instead of that kind of standard burger is definitely better for your health. Even better would be to make your own veggie burger with beans and quinoa! Or just be more mindful about eating more whole plants and a small amount of humanely raised meat if that’s what works for you.

  • She conflated hexane and Beyond Meat’s products. As far as I know, hexane is used in the production of soy protein isolate. If you listen to her words carefully, she said “THERE ARE OTHER COMPANIES THAT USE SOY BEANS”. Beyond Burger doesn’t have any soy (see the ingredient labels and Soy Free labels). Am I missing something? Did Beyond Meat disclose the use of hexane in the extraction of pea protein isolate? If you’re thinking the Canola oil, it expeller-pressed so it doesn’t use solvents like hexane. It’s squeezed mechanically. If I’m wrong, let me know.

  • The name “non-functional slack fill” contradicts itself. If the space is non functional.
    Then it’s not for slack or any thing else.

  • WOW It’s more than Cereal it’s in your coffee, Wine, Beer, Peanut Butter, Jelly. Here a LITTLE Glyphosate there a LITTLE Glyphosate. What is the GLYPHOSATE in Round Up Weed Killer supposed to do??? To Kill Plants To Kill Bacteria, what in in our Gut? Bacteria. Do Your Research, what Happens if Your Gut Bacteria is Damaged? GLYPHOSATE By Dr Stephanie Seneff YouTube and check out this Video on What happens to your Gut when you eat a little Glyphosate here, drink a little there… just a little. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jB0lL4RmutA&t=38s

  • It’s far more than cancer. Glyphosate is destroying our Gut Microbiome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_AHLDXF5aw&feature=youtu.be

  • Guess what else has Glyphosate in it.. Vaccines. Something to think about when we allow those 60 plus doses of vaccines to be pumped into our kids. Not mentioning Thimerosal (mercury) in your flu shot etc. These chemicals in our foods will be the cigarettes of the 21st century. Ohh its a safe amount. Not when you multiply all of the other food we injest or products we use. Is there some other reason, other than profits, we decided it was ok to use chemicals in everything?

  • Remember when researchers said that smoking didn’t cause cancer? Pork is good for you than beef then bad for you. Beef is good for you now bad for you. BS news hit sponsored by meat industry and pharmaceutical industry to fight their end of the run. Stop eating meat about six months ago my heath got better stop having crippling gout attack that come from eating meat and shellfish.

  • These products have a label that informs the consumer how many servings are in that container. They also provide the weight on the container. They also provide how much each serving is by weight. Anyone that reads the labels will know how much they are getting and how long it will last.

  • I only believe in eight feet mutant chicken from KFC, everything else is just fake.
    Amerika is fake, Columbus is fake, Trump is trumped up fake, they are all just a bunch of obnoxious
    aliens from the darkside of the moon. ��

  • I think there is a misconception here. Veganism CAN And IS unhealthy if you consume these chemical “meat and cheese” substitutes. PLANT BASED is when you eat raw/cooked fruits and veggies and nuts and make substitutes using these whole plant based ingredients or at least trying to limit your intake on these commercial/chemical “vegan” products. I’m “vegan” but I like to be called plant based. I see so many large corporation taking control of “vegans” and trying to gain profit off of them. I was one of them. Until I found out how my body became more sick from relying on these chemical substitutes too much. Btw, Bill Gates, the man who now wants to put a geo-engineered chemical cloud up in our atmosphere to “stop” global warming, owns a big stake in the Beyond Meat Co. So does Tyson Chicken…. they own a 6% share in the company which is a lot in the scheme of things since beyond meat is really being marketed now and is taking off…. you’re still paying for slaughter. You’re still paying for something made in a lab. Grow your own food. Make your own food. Do your own research and find what’s the best option for you.

  • “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
    People who buy this stuff and find the container half empty are free to not buy it again. If they keep buying it, they obviously don’t care that it’s half empty. They like the product, they’re satisfied with what they get for the price they pay, and they don’t care that the container is twice as big as it needs to be.

  • I don’t eat/drink much sugar and I should get more vitamins daily… I do like Vitamin water. The dragon fruit one is great, but I’d only need one a day, the rest is water or the matcha latte I make. (Sometimes I want soda or a slushy w/ some sake)

    I remember when I was younger in NYC, the subways had hundreds of empty Vitamin Water bottles all over the place.

  • A $2,000,000,000 punitive award to a couple who ‘believe’ glyphosate caused their cancer. That ridiculous sum of money will surely be whittled down as appeals proceed. The decision of that jury illustrates the deficiency of intellectual curiosity our nation has. Science did not inform that jury and Monsanto does not rely on belief to engineer its products. Glyphosate is by an order of magnitude safer than previous herbicides in the organochlorine and organophosphate classes. It is disturbing to see ignorance prevail in our nation.

  • Glyphosate basedherbicide exposure affects gut microbiota, anxiety and depression-like behaviors in mice
    Glyphosate-based herbicide exposure leads to despair behavior.
    Glyphosate-based herbicide changed the gut microbiota abundance and composition.

  • Protein powder is a rip-off don’t buy it unless you are advised buy a doctor to treat a medical condition. You don’t need extra protein in your diet. Too much protein stresses the liver and is has been identified as a mechanism for the promotion of cancer.
    But you want to get big that’s why you take protein powder right well first off
    a baby doubles in size in 6 months just drinking breast milk which is around 5% of calories from protein (this is the fastest you’ve ever grown in your life) which you’ll easily get from your diet.

    2) muscles grow from resistance exercise keep lifting the weight.

    3) A big tub of heavily processed powder made from whey (an industrial waste product) is not something that you want to be putting in your body.

    Think about it if they are happy to trick you into thinking you’re getting more then you actually are, then it doesn’t take much to think that they can trick you into buying a cheap industrial waste product at a premium price wrapped up in an oversized glitzy package. It’s a big scam!!

  • They literally has to change the DNA of grains so it could live through being sprayed with the poison.Some grains are double, even triple sprayed. The soil maybe sprayed before planting, then the plants are sprayed and then many are sprayed right before harvest to speed up the drying process.

  • Something tells me they were never eating Cheerios in the house or Rothschild or Buckingham Palace. Look into ‘Agenda 21’ & human population culling.

  • It cost more to gave these convenient packages. Set one day aside a week and make your own products for your children. Get out the blender get out the mixer do whatever you have to do but stop purchasing all these convenient Foods just because you can’t schedule your life. And Livia schedule don’t let things interfere in your life and besides all this Convenient Food is made from plastic containers what’s with that and we’re polluting Earth with convenience

  • Read Dr. Gundry’s books on the Plant Paradox Diet…huge eye opener about all the foods you eat that you think are healthy for you.

  • Interestingly, tests by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) published in 2018 found a lower concentration of glyphosate in Cheerios (averaging about 500 ppb) than the earlier studies, although it found 390 ppb to 1,300 ppb in samples of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats. Samples of Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats contained just 20 ppb or less and samples of Whole Foods Bulk Bin conventional rolled oats contained 40 ppb or less. Glyphosate in instant oat cereals ranged from no detectable amount in Simple Truth Organic Instant Oatmeal Original to around 700 ppb in Giant Instant Oatmeal Original Flavor and Quaker Dinosaur Eggs, Brown Sugar. EWG found no detectable glyphosate in an organic granola bar from Nature’s Path, but 30 to 620 ppb in samples of other granola bars. Additional testing by EWG in 2019 of 21 oat-based cereal and snack products found a higher glyphosate concentration (729 ppb) in Cheerios than in 2018, while the product with the highest glyphosate concentration was Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch (833 ppb).

  • Do you other people take vitamins everyday. Cause I started a year ago. I went a decade with out drinking or eating and vitamin supplements. But I have smelled reptile vitamin and calcium supplements

  • I’ve been using zantrex protein powder and I’ve never seen anything disappointing. It’s also a transparent container and the product works for me.����

  • “Everything in moderation?” When it is poison it is still poison no matter the amount. And why is a nutritionist recommending processed foods? They are packed with pesticides, sugar, and other unpronounceable chemicals. Why is she recommending eggs when they cause fungal growth in our bodies??????
    People, do your own research and don’t listen to the media or anyone else.

  • It is more than the glyphosate… do your own research into all the other chemicals that make this potentially MORE dangerous than just the glyphosate alone.. There is NO reason good enough to put poison on our FOOD!

  • If it has salt in it too, you need some sugar for electrolytes, remember who they market too, bikecyclists. Electrolytes, id a combo of salt and yes a bit of sugar.

  • America is turning to shit. First, there’s the lack of education about how these vanity products do ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOTHING, but worse, we’re losing values set out in the fucking Magna Carta, written in 1215. In this timely and thoroughly modern document that is several centuries old, we have things like:
    1. The king or ruler is NOT above the law.
    2. There is a distinct legal process and individuals have legal rights (habeus corpus).
    3. The government can NOT seize land or property without due cause, and………..wait for it………….wait for it………

    No kidding, folks, it was established in the fresh and happening year of 1215. History, kids, is important, lest we forget or are doomed to repeat it.

  • Well actually…Syntha-6 packages their protein in a lightly tinted plastic container. You can see exactly how much is in there prior to buying. Also there are some retailers that offer a money back guarantee; in this case if you open it and you’re not satisfied with the amount in the container take it back. Have them recommend a brand that gives you your money’s worth.

  • This is a non issue, read the freaking label! Also many retailers disclose cost per serving. Manufacturers shouldn’t get punished because of the container they choose.

  • I eat oats all the time and I feelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllliluhop8hp7jp9;;;;;;;8jj;00000000,

  • A pre-workout is not a protein powder, its something you take before you do your workout. And what you get depends on what brand you buy because some are very good and some are not, that’s why I buy my products from Nutra Bio its fully transparent and a high end product, it costs a little more, but its worth it. I have tried Cellucor products before but they are not worth the money if you are into fitness and health, and pre-workout products are a waste of money because they provide no benefit at all and are just a gimmick, all you need is protein powder (preferably a mix of slow and fast digesting protein Whey and Casein) and a post workout to replenish electrolytes and BCAA’s, and creatine monohydrate, that’s all you need.

  • Knowling this, why isn’t the FDA having these products pulled from the shelves. The solution is not to drastically reduce the cost, but to remove them because the health hazard remains. Who is protecting us, surely not the government and not the FDA. What a joke!!

  • My roommate is a vegetarian so she had me try it. It tastes just as gross as other meat imitators out there, so if you’re a meat eater or you just don’t like other processed veggie meats, you probably won’t like this. It would be far healthier to pick out a nice lean steak and have your butcher grind it for you than it is to eat this over processed garbage.

    Beyond nothing… it’s just another tofurky company, profiting on ignorance.

  • Let’s talk about ‘Processed meats’ being classified as a group 1 known carcinogen by the American Cancer Society and ‘RED MEAT’ is a Group 2A Probable carcinogen.

  • No shit, people need to be told about this obvious scam thats nothing new? Kinda like telling someone about the weather they are standing in….

  • Wouldn’t there be a weight? Also it seems kinda silly for them to do this due to the extra space they have as slack fill could be used to put more bottles/jars whatever in so that there would be less transportation costs. Just seems weird to me. I always check price per unit product

  • Think of all the crap made in China as well. They cant even get drywall made safely. If we think American companies only care about their bottom line, China and others are even worse. Deep breathes…

  • Anyone that takes protein supplements is a dickhead. Anyone with the brains to have a balanced diet doesn’t need supplements. Spend your money and make some effect to learn about nutrition instead of tossing off over how big your muscles are getting.

  • Isn’t it up to the consumer to read the label and see how much he’s buying poundage? Consumers are buying by weight, regardless if 10# comes in a container that is full to the top or a larger container that is 3/4 full. Supplements are sold the same way. I buy 100 pills and the bottle is 3/4 full, or even 1/2 full, but there are 100 pills in it.

  • If you are still feeding you kids genetically modified poison and you know better! Bullshit! Fuck Monsanto. They are owned by Bayer. Monsanto is all about the bottom line. Money and their shareholders. Do your research. Stop feeding your kids this shit. General mills is a big time offender.

  • Heart starts skipping when I’ve eaten cheeros stopped long ago. oatmeal too. Had to stop. I thought it might be glyphosphate??? Only eat organic cereal. Make sure have enough potassium and magnesium.
    If have kidney disease check with doctor about potassium magnesium etc. Research research.

  • 133-week pilot study on glyphosate and Roundup administered at human-equivalent dose to Sprague Dawley rats: effects on the microbiome. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides initial evidence that exposures to commonly used GBHs, at doses considered safe, are capable of modifying the gut microbiota in early development, particularly before the onset of puberty. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29843725

  • stock will be at $300 before summer ends. these CNBC exporters are arsonist for hire in their spare time. i eat beyond products at least 2 times a week and i am strict vegetarian because, eating meat causes an attack of crippling gout. talk about nerve.

  • Its probably in all grains and produce. Breads, pasta, all flour products. If you want to live in this world, you gotta roll the dice. Screw it, smokem if you got’em!!!!

  • I refuse to drink vitamin water because on a road trip with my family. I was drinking vitamin water, and I got car sick. So we had to stop in the parking lot of a church, and I vomited allot. it’s one of the only things I won’t drink

  • If I get a cold I uselly mega dose vitamin c and my cold don’t last more then a few days I’ve took up to 30,000 mg before I can assure u 2000 mg isn’t a overdose��

  • I got kidney stones like a few years ago,again! after not knowing where it really came from…this kind of gave me an idea now! where it came from LOL

  • Too much of ANYTHING’S no good, actually. EVERYTHING’S going to Take us out, eventually…
    Who in they right mind WANTS to Live forever on this planet, any old way(?)

  • As you noted, while difficult it is possible to overdose on water soluble vitamins. I pulled off a Vitamin C overdose about 17 or 18 years ago.

    I was volunteering at a day camp. It was a hot day and I had unfettered access to cases of Sunny-D. Sunny-D specifically has added Vitamin C. That being the case, by the end of the day I was in the bathroom with my insides exiting my body at great speed. I learned a lot about vitamin overdoses that day.

  • I take ORGANIFI green juice every morning I take the red juice and I take the gold so I get everything I need, Everybody jump on this ORGANIFI do the research, and it taste magnificent thanks you guys, I love all of you as a species

  • federal judge vince chhabria, on july 12, 2019 denied monsanto a new trial, he ruled that edwin hardeman presented sufficient admissable evidence to the jury that exposure to roundup caused his cancer. 13,400 trials to go

  • Glyphosate is banned in all of Europe! We DO KNOW this causes disease and death! Greedy US corporation big boys, could care less about our health. Regulatory agencies like FDA is being paid off.

  • This isn’t entirely accurate information. The daily recommended intake is the amount you should take to NOT be deficient. Vitamin C can cause oxalate kidney stones at rather high doses (regularly taking 20grams a day’ll do it.) Also, cholecalciferol (D3) when mixed with macrogolglycerol ricinoleate becomes water-soluble.


  • Y’all realize that even “organic” foods still probably have some form of GMOs? You’ll never escape stuff like this in your food. Just deal with it

  • I own the stock but after hearing this I am going to be skeptical of actually eating one of their products. Hexane in the meat does not sound good.

  • This is S.C.A.R.Y!!����������. I sure hope someone comes out with something soon that finds a way to grow our crops without the use of pesticides.

  • 4yrs ago I lost 60lbs going with a Paleo diet of veg and clean meat. My labs are better than ever, weight still off. My science, my facts, are my body.

  • My family has been avoiding this fake “plant based* meat ever since it came out. We live in a farming community. Buying and slaughtering a cow is the safest and more natural way of feeding growing kids.

  • Center for Consumer Freedom is run by Rick Berman aka Dr. Evil. He receives money from the meat industry, oil industry, and big tobacco companies. Of course he would run a smear campaign against Beyond Meat. Besides it’s all FALSE INFORMATION. Look up Rick Berman he claims mercury in fish is not harmful and that trans fat unclogs your arteries. The guy is a corrupt lobbyist.

  • Lady…!!! You are talking about servings of poison when I am asking what the hell it’s doing in our food..?? Moderation..?? Of poison..?? What..???

  • Are you for real?????….”everything in moderation”…..even glyphosate and arsenic. And she’s a nutritionist, I won’t be seeing her anytime soon.

  • I complained to Kelloggs about mostly empty cornflakes. They said it is necessary for packing settling. However, Dorset cereals are filled to the top. If they can fill full, so can Kelloggs.

  • I like how Rick always thinks a big company can just do everything smaller and more nimble ones are doing. I work in a mega Corp and there is a reason we just buy the smaller competitors. Our engineers sometimes can’t figure it out or we don’t have have the bandwidth. He’s really stupid. Look at Tesla, it’s been out for 10 years now and the big boys are still behind. It’s not by choice.

  • OMG. Reason I no longer watch this shit show. Nothing but hot air to drive viewership. No real data or intelligence required here. Much like the Trump administration

  • Glyphosate does not only cause Lymphoma, it’s destroying the gut flora which is the foundation of most of the diseases plaguing this country. Look into the links of Autism and compromised guts and how it ties to the contaminated Glyphosate food in USA. USA is spraying 25% of the Glyphosate and we make up 5% of the world’s population and we have the highest rates of Autism in the entire world. People need to start doing research into all of this. We all need to be concerned. FDA is said to now be testing our foods and the Glyphosate levels….40 years later. We have been poisoned.

  • so the people who eat a flour bun, ketchup, relish, mayonnaise, and barbecue sauce are terribly concerned about you eating processed foods that are unnatural

    they want you eating your ketchup directly from the natures ketchup vine

    notice how they say harmful chemicals without telling you if those chemicals are actually in the product and how much and how much is a problem

    its all vague with these jackasses. so they leave the burden of proof up to the listener rather than the one making the claim.

    they never look at the studies from long term vegans, life long vegans who eat these things all their life and absofuckinglutely not a single health problem

    imagine that. kids born vegan, eating this stuff not a single health problem as they enter adulthood.

    but look at a study they do on rats, they want to apply to humans and these retards become scientists. meanwhile they go home to their processed meats and blame vegetables that are processed as the problems in the world

    if you want to prove that Beyond meat is bad, go to the peer reviewed scientific journals. Not a retard journalist pretending to be a health coach. and when your search comes up empty, shut the fuck up.

  • That’s messed up. This video was released 8 days ago, and there’s only approximately 8,000 views. Why isn’t this on the front page of YouTube? Why isn’t this on the main news cycle? shakes head only heard of this because of an instagram post and reddit post…

  • Meat industry is trillions of dollar industry world wide. If beyond gets 1% of that then this is a multi billion dollar company. Bynd is ahead of their competitors, have excellent products, and selling worldwide already. Green revolution is here to stay and lead the world.

  • I can’t believe the nutritionist suggested to only eat the glyphosate ladden products once weekly! That is not okay. I do agree however the make your own baby food and not buy prepackaged options.

  • Just got done eating one, opening the package smelled like cleaning solvent very strong non organic smell, cooked it still gave off strong solvent like smell, made burger, texture was good condiments drowned out any meat flavor but when done my breath smelled like solvent and my lips are dry….never again, threw the second patty away! Bought it at Albertsons on sale for five dollars to see what all the rave reviews were about, now I wonder how much they were paid!

  • Worked in this field for over 25 years now and have degrees in nutrition…sorry buddy. All nutrients are light sensitive and the stores that sell them sometimes deal with sunlight coming into the store directly and it’s a means to keep the protein or powder fresher for longer. Please stop looking like an idiot looking for a greater issue than the one we’re presented with the oversized containers.

    The other reasons hey use too large of a container for too little product is to take up extra space on shelves and hopefully drive out competition from shelf space. The planograms of any store that sells nutritional products has a finite amount of space and they do like to squeeze out any chance of comparable products being set side by side in some cases.

  • There is also a flow-on effect of “non-functioning slack fill” — instead of fitting a shipment in one container or truck, it takes two, and so on. Then there’s more trucks on the road, more rail carriages, more shipping containers requiring more ships, more fossil fuel being used — great for profits, screw the environment is the business profit mindset. PS Instead of raising prices, there are less and less biscuits in a packet. One day, there will only be one biscuit in a packet for the same price as today.

  • These brands/products do not use GMOs or hexane for their veggie processed foods.

  • How about you be a real mom and make them some breakfast instead handing them factory boxed crap then complaining its not “healthy”

  • This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen. The weight is right on the container. There can be a million reason for the size of the container. It can be cheaper to have a couple of sizes of containers for the manufacturer. There can be a need for air. This is just someone trying to exploit a dumb legal system where you can earn millions because you claim you did not know that coffee is hot.

  • Dear fellow Americans I’m utterly appalled at the level of shameful ignorance our “News” people are so abundantly blessed with. These people are who you look towards for news and yet here we are in 2019 and 10 yrs ago I knew enough about Glyphosate to STOP eating any and ALL GMO foods I had lost plenty of family pets purchasing what I was told was a healthy diet food and it was literally killing my beloved pet’s it wasn’t until My Vet told me to switch to a Natural NO GMO OR ROUND UP foods.. This lady should be ashamed of herself.. I hope her kids at home enjoyed the round up ready corn puffs But you go ahead listen to this lady.. make sure you enjoy your Round up ready corn puffs.. NO AMOUNT IS A SAFE AMOUNT.. Remember your listening to the same people who told you DDT was good for you and Me the same people that told you PCBs were safe.. So enjoy..

  • HONEY… these leeches are not about to list GLYPHOSATE as an ingredient on food labels. Look at your Mayonnaise jar…, by % of content the ingredient most abundant in a food item is listed first. 100% of all SOY grown in America is ROUNDUP READY. Even Olive OIl Mayonnaise has SOY OIL listed as the second most abundant ingredient. ROUNDUP manufacturer ” MONSANTO ” has gotten in bed with the kings of Bio Toxins. NAZI GERMANY, Hitler’s Niece Angela Merkel is the current President of Germany. Any GRAIN grown in a field where weed KILLER roundup is used, transports GLYPHOSATE into such things as Oatmeal, Wheaties, Cornflakes, Soy OIl, Soy Lecithin, Soy Protein, Soy flour. Nearly all foods….

  • Any terrorist group that want to destroy America should stop working on weapons or nukes & just export a lot of sugar, corn syrup, maple syrup etc…and Americans will destroy themselves by overdosing.

  • We need the news media to talk more about the studies that are being done at Rodale Institute, they are leading through science on farming methods that are regenerative. If you have not heard of Rodale, here is the web address. https://rodaleinstitute.org/science/

  • Yeah here in Korea there’s a pretty well known story? where this man took vitamin water every single day before heading to work and he developed severe neurological problems

  • smh… pretty much all cereal is bad, so dont eat it expecting “healthy”. on the rare occasions i eat cereal i have some delicious cap n crunch or frosted flakes and i dont worry about nonsense nutrition facts. like the old saying goes “everything in moderation”
