Not so Cool Whip..... Ditch it!

Even if you can't spend the extra money, or don't have the time to frequent the farmer's markets you can still make healthier choices at the supermarket. Let's take a look at Cool Whip whipped topping.

Wired Magazine did a post in 07'

A delicious blend of sugar, wax, and condom lube.

I laughed out loud when I read that one..... I knew whipped cream was sexy, but...

Here are two of the worst ingredients! hmmm, might inspire one to actually whip cream..

Polysorbate 60

Polysorbates are made by polymerizing ethylene oxide (a precursor to antifreeze) with a sugar alcohol derivative. The result can be a detergent, an emulsifier, or, in the case of polysorbate 60, a major ingredient in some sexual lubricants.

Sorbitan Monostearate
Chemists call this stuff synthetic wax, and it's sometimes used as a hemorrhoid cream. It's one of the magical substances that keep Cool Whip from turning to liquid over time in the fridge.

So, next time you reach for that whipped topping think about those very sexy hemmorrhoids. You might just reach for a carton of plain old heavy cream.......
