Nasty Food of the Week – Cheese Balls

cheese balls

 

Okay, I realize this one is sort of obvious but I was truly inspired by these glowing balls of cheese. (In a weird sort of way.)

I always have such mixed emotions when I see a product like this on the store shelves. I feel horrified and amused at the same time. Amused because they just look so…silly. I mean, Cheese Balls… seriously??? They don’t even remotely resemble ANYTHING in the natural world! Is there any better example of a non food item than this? I’m saddened and horrified because there are people who actually purchase these products. Cheese Balls wouldn’t be on the market if SOMEONE wasn’t buying them, right?

Cheese Balls contain so many disgusting ingredients I don’t even know where to begin.

Two of the main ingredients in cheese balls are enriched flour and partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Let’s look at enriched flour for a moment shall we? Anytime you see the word “enriched” on a product it means essentially that it has been processed to remove all the healthy ingredients. Soybean oil is a genetically modified organism (GMO). GMO’s have been linked to obesity, cancer, reproductive problems, food allergies and digestive problems. Some of the other ingredients include¬†ferrous sulfate, tricalcium phosphate, sunflower oil and/or corn oil which are all used in processed foods. In a nutshell, there is absolutely NOTHING in cheese balls that should be going into your body.

Although they are funny to look at.
