We all know Sabra Hummus is more addictive than crack. Once you start that stuff, you will not be stopping. Hummus is truly one of the wonderous pleasures of gustatory experience.
Can you even believe Sabra Hummus contains sodium benzoate? WTF! Maybe that’s the “closely guarded secret Mediteranean” ingredient that makes it “richer, smoother and tastier.” Please visit http://www.guerrillanutritionlabels.com, print some ‘sodium benzoate is krap’ labels and inform your fellow citizens pronto.
The good news is that there are PLENTY of alternatives and not only are they SB-free, they are usually cheaper and lower in bad fats. Once I switched to a natural brand (available anywhere, even chain groceries), when I tried Sabra again it tasted funny. Locally, I’ve found Wakim’s to be de-lish.
For the cooks out there, I’m offering this simple recipe for delicious, SB-free homemade “slightly garlicky, blissfully satisfying” hummus from Savvy Vegetarian. Let us know if you try it!
