Why is it that the fewer ingredients it has, the more expensive it is?

It just doesn't make sense!  I suppose they're being marketed as specialty, ultra-healthy foods, but still.  You would think that fewer ingredients would mean lower prices, right?  But as you know, the processed big brand/store brand foods all have long ingredient lists, but they're relatively cheaper; whereas the specialty foods with a much shorter and much healthier ingredient list are much more expensive.  I get the whole economy of scale thing, where the per unit cost goes down, if you ramp up production, but that can't be everything, right?  Do people just jack up the price, when they market things as healthy, gluten-free, etc.?  To me, that's how food should be, and there shouldn't really be any premium to it, at least no justifiable premium.  Anyway, I'm ranting.

It is frigging expensive to eat healthy in this country.
