Just a New Name to Disquise An Old Silent Killer - Hydrogenated Oils

First, let me make it clear, mono-diglycerides are nothing more than hydrogenated oils. There are those that will say I do not know what I am talking about concerning this new name the food industry is using for hydrogenated oils, but let me assure you, mono-diglycerides are hydrogenated before separated into mono-diglyceridies. The "mono" means they are a combination of various oils mixed together, hydrogenated, then certain fatty acids called diglycerides are then separated out. It is truly amazing how many people when confronted with the truth will still try to convince others the opposite of the truth.

Mono-diglycerides remain the most widely used emulsifiers in food production. They are called mono-digylcerides because they are made from oils that have a high mono saturated fat content, but they are still hydrogenated. These are used in a wide variety of food manufacturing such as, breads, bagels, muffins, cookies, cakes, pies, donuts, pasta mixes, potato chips, ice creams, almost all packaged desserts, nearly all margarines and other spreads. Your local grocery bakery including Walmart bakeries use these oils. New margarine spreads Benecol™ and Take Control™ contain hydrogenated oils . Just read your label. Remember...its' your health!

There are many food oil companies that produce mono-diglyerides. So when you read mono-diglycerides on packaged foods, it is nothing more than hydrogented oils. Below is a sample of one product listings from Gillco, oils manufactured by Quest International, one of the largest food oil producing companies worldwide. Gillco's url address is http://www.gillco.com. They sell mono-diglycerides using these names, Myverol®, Myvacet®, Myvatex®, Myvaplex® and they stipulate on the company's fact sheet that they are "hydrogenated".

Product Type Fat Source
Dur-Em114 Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
Dur-Em117 Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
Dur-Em204 Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
Dur-Em207 Partially Hydrogenated Soybean/Cottonseed Oil Combination
Admul MG 6203,4163, 4223, 4343 Hydrogenated Palm Oil

The oil products above contain anywhere from 36% to 60% mono saturated fats. The company also makes a variety of oils using pure Canola oil. The product listed below is made from a combination of Rapeseed, Palm and Cottonseed oils. We all know the dangers of Rapeseed oil and Cottonseed oil is one of the worst oils you can cook with, very high in fat content. Palm oil is reasonable when used in very small percentages mixed with other oils, but only un-refined, un-hydrogenated oils.

Improve your health with these amazing water wands !


The water wand introduces passive natural energy waves into clean drinking water, fruit, vegetable and vitamin drinks. This process causes water molecules to shed excess minerals and other substances, which break down into finer more usable nutrients. Since the water molecule becomes lighter, you can drink more liquids. This process balances pH, transports nutrients, and absorbs more waste in the body at a faster rate. Drinking more water and fluids helps increase your rate of hydration, assimilation of nutrients and elimination (detoxification). This subtle energy is discernable and gives a feeling of well-being.

red blood cells before and after use.
