The food industry, like any capitalist industry, is all about cutting costs and increasing profit to the highest it can be. Most of us know that those mass-produced foods we buy every week might not be completely organic. In fact, the food industry now labels their organic food with helpful little green stickers. What does that say about the things we consume? What do you do if you want to be more aware of which foods are fake?

8. Maple Syrup – Most big brand maple syrups are actually not made of maple syrup at all. A quick look at the ingredients on the bottle will show you that it's 100% high fructose corn syrup and caramel coloring.
7. Olive oil – Most of the time, the EVOO you see in the stores is diluted with peanut or soybean oil.
6. Rice – Recent reports have shown that contaminated rice has been making the rounds in China and Nigeria, promoting health concerns in the population.
5. Powdered instant coffee – According to Larry Olmsted, a food writer, some common ingredients found blending in with the coffee powder includes “cereals, caramel, parchment, starch, malt, and figs.”
4. Tea – Research has found that some manufacturers added sawdust and non-tea leaves to maximize profit.
3. Sushi – A study by environmental group Oceana found that 94% of tuna used in sushi in New York City restaurants wasn't tuna. Instead, it was found to be a type of fish called escolar.
2. Crab – Business Insider states that imitation crab is not as nutritious as real crab, and that the main ingredient in imitation crab is a type of fish paste which is called surimi. Surimi is made from pollock fish with added flavors like egg white, starch, sugar, and crab flavoring.
1. Wasabi – Because the original ingredient in wasabi is so expensive and delicate to handle, it's most likely that the wasabi you're eating at a restaurant is a mix of horseradish, mustard flour and green dye.
