Aldi's announced in October 2015: "The substances that are no longer allowed in Aldi’s products are certified synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils, and added monosodium glutamate."  To see the full article, click HERE.


PLEASE NOTE!!!!
  • Not all locations carry all items
  • Brand names vary between locations and also may change in each location, so check for non-compliant ingredients at all times! (mostly problematic are added sugar, non compliant oil, carageenan)
  • Aldi's is a cash-and-carry establishment; however they do take debit cards
  • You'll need to pay to use a shopping cart, but get your money back once you return the cart

  3. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Fat.

    This means that you actually burn fat by consuming coconut fats (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from major medicinal magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world upside down!
