Do South Beach Diet foods contain preservatives?

Preservatives are not required in many of The South Beach Diet weight loss  foods due to the type of processing methods used. Any preservatives that are used meet FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) criteria and can be found in many grocery store foods; these include potassium sorbate, BHT, calcium propionate and sodium benzoate. If you wish to avoid preservatives altogether, please contact a counselor for a list of foods containing them.
