4 Ingredients Your Snacks Shouldn't Have

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by all of the advice and information about what you should or shouldn’t eat swirling around. Everyday it feels like there’s some new trend in healthy living going viral on the web. Don’t fall down the clickhole of trying to sort through fact or fiction, healthy or harmful. To help you start eating right, NatureBox is offering 50% off all snacks


Read on for a list of ingredients we like to avoid as a rule of thumb.

Artificial colors. Food coloring can and should come from natural sources. Artificial dyes are foreign chemicals going into your body, and people can have adverse reactions to them. Besides, why use Red Dye #2 when natural beet extract works fine?

 Corn syrup. Highly refined sweeteners should be a no-go, and high fructose corn syrup is no exception. Opt for snacks with less processed sweeteners like honey or cane sugar.  

Hydrogenated oil. Another heavily processed product, hydrogenated oils contain trans fat that’s meant to extend the shelf life of food products. It also happens to be linked to a higher risk of coronary heart disease.  

MSG. Aka monosodium glutamate, MSG is used as a flavor enhancer in restaurants and commercial food products. Some people have been known to experience adverse reactions to it, so we avoid it altogether. Instead we “enhance” our snacks with flavorful ingredients and creative spice combinations.  

You won’t find any of these icky ingredients in NatureBox snacks, so you can browse our 100+ options and feel good about anything you choose.
