According To The FDA, Frosted Flakes Are “Healthier” Than Avocados The Food and Drug Administration is an organization whose motives and influences have long been questioned by. FDA: Frosted Flakes Healthier Than an Avocado Under the FDA’s current rules, some cereals and snacks are deemed healthier than fruits and nuts based on fat content. FDA: Frosted Flakes Healthier Than an Avocado. Under the FDA’s current rules, some cereals and snacks are deemed healthier than fruits and nuts based on fat content.

That is likely to change. The FDA says that Frosted Flakes are healthier than an avocado. What is up with that?

Marc Lobliner explains. Frosted Flakes are Healthier than Avocados, According to FDA May 30, 2018 at 9:55 pm FDA says Frosted Flakes, Pop Tarts and Spaghetti-Os are. Frosted Flakes vs Avocado In a widely-circulated example of the absurdity of this logic, the FDA essentially says that Frosted Flakes, which are loaded with sugar and have minimal nutrients, are healthier than avocados. “FDA says Frosted Flakes healthier than an avocado” That’s a real headline that was on the WSJ last night.

But what’s even more shocking is that the FDA has thought this way for nearly 20 years It’s only now at the urging of food companies that they’re going to categorize foods like avocados and nuts as “healthy”. / The FDA / FDA: Frosted Flakes Healthier Than An Avocado FDA: Frosted Flakes Healthier Than An Avocado August 24, 2018 The FDA Comments Off on FDA: Frosted Flakes Healthier Than An Avocado. That doesn’t mean that some foods aren’t better than others we have pretty decent evidence that foods with trans fat or a high omega-6 to omega-3 ratio lead to poorer health outcomes, for example.

But, generally speaking, we’re missing the point as long as we’re talking about “good” and “bad” foods. You can eat too much of either of them. Under the FDA’s current rules, some cereals and snacks are deemed healthier than fruits and nuts based on fat content.

That is likely to change as the agency.

  • If the FDA says eat it and its good, do the opposite. Food and pharma are ONE and they want everyone sick and taking their drugs for life or having their cancer treatment…and btw Vaccines are poison.

  • WHO CARES ABOUT FOOD, HOW ABOUT WHEN THEY START BANNING INGREDIENTS IN SUPPLEMENTS WHICH ARE PROVEN TO BE SAFE, SOME ARENT SO YEAH BAN THOSE, BUT I BET SOON THEY WILL START BANNING BETA ALININE FOR FUCK SAKE

  • You would think that the FDA would actually know something about food, guess I was wrong. It’s clear to see whose pocket are they in?

  • FDA? F-ING DUMB A-HOLES, this is such bs, they’re not even mentioning the chemicals n ‘fake’,’ non-natural shit in the pre-made foods mentioned that’ll affect you in the long run..

  • These people are nuts. Ok avocado may have fat but it’s healthy fat. Your body can process it through your body easier then some pop-tarts or frosted flakes… This is ridiculous.

  • It’s funny how everything in a BOX is “healthier” than the foods that are grown?!�� It makes me wonder how IGNORANT these people that actually have to go to school to be this dumb are! Institutionalized Education clearly ain’t cutting I️t.

  • Before worrying about and seeing the calories, sodium, and fat: Why not take a look at the INGREDIENTS!?!?
    “What trash are they stuffing in it?” Artificial Colorants, preservatives, more food additives, ‘flavors,’ yet the food industry itself is purposely trying to reduce awareness of this. It’s because:
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    Isn’t it “natural?” Corporations and businesses both want and need currency, they worked hard, thus they’d like to ‘expand’ that “money and power.” Just look at the marketing strategies used!
    Food additives causing hyperactivity in children: Making the eating feel ‘rewarding,’ so the individual wishes to eat more. Disorienting eating disorders: High fructose corn syrup, don’t worry! The FDA says it’s safe! So do the food corporations and some ‘shady individuals,’ and more! Yet by then, masses of the people of the United States become desperate to loose fat, and the large “food industry” knew how to capitalize on that! “Diet sodas! Low carb, zero cal! How healthy!!”

    Please, count less calories, fat, and even sodium(might wanna count sugar if you don’t want candida taking over your gut), and start counting additives, and try to figure out if it’s GMO or not(that could mess up your testosterone if you’re worried about that), and why trust everything you hear? (Not being paranoid about ‘thinking outside the box, thus really: It would be great if individuals would begin ‘researching'(just searching) and thinking for themselves, rather than listening to what they’re told by ‘giants).

    Sure, though the United States has freedoms many other nations have, and sure, the Russian Federation has low political freedoms, and poor ‘freedom of speech,’ and the United States has many freedoms other nations don’t have, probably Vladimir Putin would care more about a single ‘Russian average joe’ and the Russian population more than Mr.Obama and some other ‘leaders'(presidents) would about an average ‘American joe’ and the American population. What ‘nice deal’ did Monsanto get? ‘Justice’ immunity!

  • The issue is they spotlight fat because people are fat. They don’t understand sugar and carbohydrates are the main culprit. There is a 0% reason to be eating portraits or flaked cereal.

    On the other hand Salmon provides protein with some of the healthiest fats on the planet… Thanks FDA for doing none of your job

  • While I’m not a fan of the FDA, these articles aren’t accurate either. They never specially said Frosted Flakes are healthier than avocados or recommended one over the other. The FDA guidelines could be construed to suggest sugary cereals are healthier than avocados, almonds or salmon; which isn’t the same as the article claims.

  • Nice job government. Saying stuff that increases your chances of diabetes is healthier than fish and veggies, which is good for your heart and joints. WAY TO GO!!!

  • Processed food is never healthier than unprocessed, natural food. The FDA would like us to think it’s more complex, but it isn’t.

  • Sugar or perhaps the dopamine it produces is an addictive chemical. Load kids up on it with constant advertising and it’s no wonder their stupid and fat and don’t care if the food they eat is terrible for them because it “tastes good”. Poor bastards can’t even stop because their body has been conditioned their whole life to crave these sugary foods because almost everything, even fucking bread, has tons of sugar.

  • Paid for by Kellogs, makers of Frosted Flakes and the FDA aka (Fucking Dumb Asses!) They approve drugs that give you cancer and make you blow your brains out! BULLSHIT!

  • This is the most messed up angering thing I have ever heard. What is happening to this world? These people need to be fired, what do we have a bunch of morons working there? This is sad.

  • Ever since I started eliminating processed sugar from my diet, my body has changed dramatically. I eat about 150 g of protein, 150 g of carbs, and 50 g of fat per day and feel great. It’s been just two months, and my friends stop me on the street and say they can’t believe how thin I look. I’ve also gained some muscle in the gym. I only exercise about three times a week, and believe it or not, little to no cardio. The sugar I get is from fruits, mainly banana. What a disgrace that the FDA has taken so long to formally change its mind. Unfortunately there are so many obese people in the US right now, god bless their souls!

  • The FDA is a joke… They don’t do their job because large corporations have their hands in the FDA’s pockets.

    One question, why is sugar not shown as a % of the daily diet? (Because the amount of sugar used in food is a crime, and the FDA tried to change it but was overpowered by large corporations)

  • I think Mitchell Obama should educate herself about nutrition before she starts changing the nutrition labels on food. anyone in bodybuilding could run that 100x better than her

  • Ok, the FDA is ok with diabetis… and helping out unhealthy food componies against the growing trend of altering your diet to one that lack the exact same things listed as here as healthy…fucking suspicious…

  • obviously Kellog is paying a good amount of money to the FDA, There is Good fats that your body NEEDS and there is bad fats, Avocado is obviously on the GOOD fats and moderation in good fats IS good for you.

  • I think Mitchell Obama should educate herself about nutrition before she starts changing the nutrition labels on food. anyone in bodybuilding could run that 100x better than her

  • Cereal companies must be losing too much money now that many of us have learned it is just a box of processed carbs/sugar.

    Unhealthy propaganda should be a criminal offense.

  • wth I could have sworn healthy fats are better for you than processed sugars from processed foods, esp. if you’re trying to gain weight right?

  • the link you gave is the exact same thing you just said on your video like it’s the script lol. Didn’t the FDA announce last week it is revamping the nutrition guidelines to include healthy fatty foods like avocados and fish as well as ensure frosted flakes were not categorized as healthy items due to high sugar content? sounds like your talking about the previous revision that took place around 1996. The FDA has learned that all fat is not bad, just like people hate carbs now, they used to hate fat back in the 80’s as you know but from what I have read and watched on the new proposed changes what your saying is just a rant and click bate.

  • These A$$clowns the fate of my natural alternative to opiates lies in their hands and they are trying to take it away…. Makes my blood boil, all about the almighty dollar. And as far as fats go.. I started a low carb, no sugar diet last month, I’m down 12lbs, I feel great, no more gluten, no more sugar, no more ASTHMA already. They infuriate me with their lies! I guess the coconut flour pancake with walnuts with an avocado I just had for lunch is going to kill me.:/

  • I will certainly be sticking to avocadoes.

    I hate the corruption of this world, be it clothes for children…. food that is not food at all… and those in power who are the vilest of the vile.

    The movie Idiocracy in full-effect.

    Teach your family the truth.  Keep being the real, God-given natural that is good for you.

  • If the FDA says eat it and its good, do the opposite. Food and pharma are ONE and they want everyone sick and taking their drugs for life or having their cancer treatment…and btw Vaccines are poison.

  • The FDA should be ashamed. Talk about a load of rubbish! Sure…fill yourself up with sugars because that’s been working out so well.

    Healthy fats ARE healthy accompanied with lowering your bad carbs and BAD fats.

    Nothing like the FDA advocating killing people.

    As a T2 diabetic that has lost 88 lbs, now with very good HbA1c’s for nearly 5 years now, lowered cholesterol, yep, LOWER CHOLESTEROL! Eating healthy fats and none of that processed crunchy bowels of sugar.

  • I have to say: Is ‘fat’ bad? Well the ‘big greedy food industry’ pointed fingers at fat, than food additives and
    sugar.
    This is bull sh**! For god damn sake, ‘we the people’ have been put in bedlam from large corporations, via lobbying, calories, fat, even sodium, aren’t the ‘true enemy,’ the real enemy and one behind the ‘American obesity epidemic?” Processed food additives, low testosterone, high estrogen levels, the FDA is saying ‘you need dairy.’ Why would you trust the FDA, if it’s backed and being lobbied, and perhaps bribed by the large food corporations, when food corporations don’t care about the people’s health, and are diving in for money? Yay, Monsanto! “Global stability”(more like global obesity), why is the food and pharmaceutical industry having ‘connections’ with the FDA and USDA?

  • You would think that the FDA would actually know something about food, guess I was wrong. It’s clear to see whose pocket are they in?

  • Avocados are loaded with ton more fat and calories than frosted flakes. You will turn into a tub of blob eating avocados, and get thin eating frosted flakes.

  • This is what happens when we put the wrong people in an extremely important role. Or we allow incompetent individuates to remain in charge because they either have an “in” with someone, are buddy buddy with the ones who can actually make a difference, or no one else wants the job.
