Ever wondered what was inside a Twinkie?
The Twinkie, which was created during the Depression, contains
thirty-nine ingredients. One of those ingredients is a preservative,
sorbic acid. Sorbic acid is an ingredient I see on many packages, and I
have never thought twice about it. But author Steve Ettlinger did. He
found that sorbic acid is actually derived from natural gas.
If that isn’t shocking enough, he goes on to talk about other
ingredients like cellulose gum, Polysorbate 60, and calcium sulfate.
Apparently, these ingredients are also used in sheet rock, shampoo, and
rocket fuel. No wonder Twinkies make kids run around like crazy and
have even been used as a defense for murder!
