I have not seen any discussion about this, but they are no calorie, no sugar, no oil. I use the salad dressings, and the maple syrup is pretty okay too.
Most of their product line tastes a bit like a chemical experiment, so I don't like to use them.
Hopefully these are okay.
Appreciate the input. THANKS.
Walden Farms has been mentioned. If you do a search, you could probably find the old threads. I tried a couple of the Walden Farms dressings several years back. They were okay, I guess, but not great. I wouldn't feel bad about using them to transition from fatty stuff, but I think there are probably some better real food options (more whole food ingredients, less mystery). You just have to find the ones you like through trial and effort. Of course, if the ingredients include real foods--like sugar or fruit, as opposed to artificial sweetener like splenda--there will probably be some
Walden farms stuff is basically thickened water with flavor and artificial sweetener added. Right?
I've come to like salsa for a salad dressing. That's low calorie, but not no calorie. Some people like plain vinegar on salads, but that's not for me. Once in a blue moon, I whip up some tofu sour cream and use a little of that on salads, usually with salsa or hot sauce too.
Maple Grove Farms may have some fat-free salad dressing options for you. I recently purchased the cranberry balsamic dressing to try, and it's pretty good. You might be able to put together your own versions of some of their dressings if you know the ingredients. I think I've seen a recipe for cranberry dressing made with whole cranberries floating around somewhere. I know I've seen blueberry one posted on this forum.

I'd think of Walden Farms as a stop-gap measure. I wouldn't want to make these products a major player in my daily diet, anyway. Mostly I'd probably be concerned about the splenda and where the "flavorings" originated. Where does egg flavor come from, anyway? http://www.waldenfarms.com/nutrition_facts.html#
"Can" is the wrong word, you know. For the most part, people "can" eat what they choose. The question is "Should they?" or "Should we?" Maybe the better question is "Should I?"--because it really is an individual choice. Don't should on me. I'm allergic.
Sem antics. It's what's for supper.
Have a great day!
