Hidden ingredients

I was buying Italian diced tomatoes the other day and decided to look at the ingredients. I was shocked! All but one brand included high fructose corn syrup! I must admit that diced tomatoes are an item I had never thought to read the ingredient list for, I guess I just assumed that they would just contain tomatoes.
I realize that they are not really "hidden" as they are listed right on the label. However, there are items that I am not in the habit of reading the ingredients - items that are considered "one ingredient" items. I also found that certain variety of beans have high fructose corn syrup. Ugh!
So, if you are like me and don't always read every label because you think you know what is in it - be warned and start reading each and every label. Know what you are feeding your family!
