Light Produkte – ihre Inhaltststoffe und Wirkung

Was steckt wirklich in Light-Produkten? Was bedeutet es überhaupt, wenn ein Produkt als „light“ gekennzeichnet ist? Bedeutet „light“ leichte und gut verdauliche Nahrung?

Light-Produkte versprechen Genuss ohne Reue. Bei genauerer Betrachtung stellt sich aber heraus, dass es sich um eine Marketingstrategie handelt. Light-Produkte sind Imitate des Orignals, bei dem ein oder mehrere Bestandteile ersetzt werden.

High Fructose Corn Syrup

CC-by-sa ethify.org & literature

The United States is among the world’s largest sugar producers. Sugar production increased when the U.S cut ties with Cuba in the 60’s, and stopped importing sugar from them. Even more sugar began being produced since government farm subsidies were introduced in the 90’s. Since then the production of the cheap sugar alternative high fructose corn syrup has increased and started making way into more and more American foods. HFCS increased from 2.2 million tons in 1980 to an average 9.2 million tons in the 2000s. Demand for HFCS is driven by demand for products that use the syrups as inputs. For HFCS-55, the major use is in the beverage industry, which demands over 90 percent of total domestic deliveries.

Film Review // Fahrenheit 9/11

CC-by-sa ethify.org & literature

Documentarians always have their own points of view, but Michael Moore takes what he needs to convince his audience of his political opinion. Moore produced this film with the explicit goal to prohibit the reelection of George Bush. The Movie is filled with controversy. As footage he used many cuts of tv-news and ‚personal‘ interviews made by himself with a big portion of dry sarcasm.
The title of the film refers to Ray Bradbury’s 1953 novel Fahrenheit 451, a view of the future United States, drawing an analogy between the burning temperature of paper and the date of the September 11 attacks.
