    The thing about sugar is that it's disallowed not for its inflammatory properties, but for it's addictive properties and for learning how much it is in EVERYTHING... even things that shoudln't have sugar in them (for example, hello sweetened applesauce??)  So when saying it doesn't 'reset  your reset', that's to do with your gut.

    We (we being the whole30 creators, staff and moderators) don't 'allow it', but we do understand that adults are capable of making their own decisions... in the example above, the point was that it won't reset the gut reset but it's not likely that a tablespoon of salad dressing is going to send someone into a down hill sugar spiral ending in a gallon of oreo ice cream...

    We ALWAYS stand behind starting over 100% of the time, but since we can't enforce it, we do give people the tools to decide for themselves.... an accidental sugar misstep in some salad dressing on the second to last day is quite different from choosing to eat a cookie on day 10... 

    Thank you!

    “There wasn’t sugar, but there was honey—that’s not the same though, honey is natural.”

    In this context, you’ve done everything you can do. You asked the right questions, got the right answers, and proceeded exactly on plan with the Whole30. As added sugar is unique in that it won’t disarm your “reset” button (and salad dressing isn’t likely to send you spiraling into sugar cravings), we can see a decision (especially on Day 28) to chalk it up to a learning experience and move on. Which brings us to the next point...

    I'm confused.
    1. "Added sugar... won't disarm your reset button"-- what does that mean?
    2. "..we can see a decision (especially on Day 28) move on"-- in other words, We'll allow it?

    You may want to visit a doctor for this... that is not a normal reaction to eating meat, veggies and fat and very possibly has nothing to do with your diet... please see a medical professional.

    Thank you!

    I think it's because people have been calling it tortula. ;)  I'm actually going to edit the title of this thread so that it is spelled correctly and thus will come up in a search. :) 

    Yeah I saw that misspelling earlier, and I was spelling it correctly. The website's internal search function doesn't really function. Like people have said, Googling "Whole30 + _____" works better :)

    Miracle Whip was created as a result of the war effort in 1933. Wartime cooks did their effort by saving eggs, and other rationed foods for the soldiers.  So Miracle Whip was created and 1 cup of sugar was added to take the place of oil.

    The primary ingredients are water, soybean oil, vinegar, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, modified corn starch, and dried eggs. The HFCS and corn starch are made from non-genetically modified maize.

    Which war effort?

  6. Trying to find compliant beef stock or boullion at Mariano's/Roundy's. Most compliant item is Pacific-brand beef broth. In addition to yeast extract (which I know is a wild card), it has 'torula yeast,' a fungus made using wood, and that has a meaty-umami flavor. What's the rule-a on torula (yuk yuk)?
