Agreed; most of the artificial substitues for natural ingredients that have been developed over the last several decades have been mediocre at best, and clearly substandard if not downright dangerous at their worst.

Seavixen, I also agree with you for the most part about cooking from scratch; I get a lot more reward from the accomplishment as well as control over the end product. I can easily see the example of someone who simply opts not to invest the time and attention into cooking something complex from scratch because they've been on their feet all day at work and still have several hours of work to do at home, i.e. college classes, kids, side job, etc. That's not the responsibility of food manufacturers, to deal with our busy lives; what we do with our time is our problem. Food manufactureres are supposed to make tons of money by providing its customers with respectable options rather than slowly killing off the populace with microwaveable trash in a box.

And all this from someone who drinks water or espresso all the time because all the soft drinks are just too sweet, and dislikes most convenience foods having about half the daily recommended allowance of sodium in a single serving; my salt is used only in baking.
