Enriched wheat flour sounds quite fine but during processing, a lot of natural nutrients are stripped away, thus other things are added back to the product such as iron, folic acids, cheddar cheese and salt.
The iron supplemented is a metallic form that our small intestine cannot fully absorb. Researchers have also linked the fortification of foods with folic acid to diseases like cancer.
The cheddar cheese is also inorganic since the cows are fed with a diet that is hereditarily adapted grains and then they produce milk for the cheese. The hormones that are injected to these cows that stimulate the cows to produce milk are purely genetically engineered hormone thus might cause diseases such as mastitis which can lead to the need for further treatment with antibiotics. More to that the body becomes resistant to antibiotics that is further transferred to humans which is very dangerous

The caramel color added during coloring is also poisonous since it’s a chemical. Sodas are labeled with attractive labels like “natural flavors” but in the real sense they are vague. This is just to attract the buyer to buy and consume more of the product.
