Things that you are most likely to look for are saturated fats, aspartame or perhaps peanuts if you have an allergy. It is a little strange that you don’t do the same thing when picking up a packet of cigarettes at the supermarket as well. You see a warning that “smoking kills” or a gruesome picture showing the affects of what smoking can do, but there isn’t a section on the pack listing the ingredients.
