Some of these things are sinister, such as ingredients that may have negative effects, but mostly these bits of information are simply meant to make us consume more of their products. This is the case with products such as Cheetos, which trick our bodies into thinking that they have fewer calories because they dissolve when they eat them. Buzzfeed recently released a video exposing the marketing ploys behind many companies whose products we use every day.
