Worst Food Additives

Monday, July 27, 2009

I just read this on MSN and I've been trying to eat cleaner foods, so I'm going to pay a lot of attention to food labels.
1. Sodium Nitrate ( In almost all processed meats. I buy the nitrate free bacon and it's like 6$)
3. Propyl Gallate
4. Mono sodium glutamate (msg)
5. trans fat
6. aspartame ( I'm trying to get off of diet cokes)
7.Acesulfame - k
8. food coloring blue 1,2 Red 3, Green 3, and yellow 6
9. pottasium bromate
10.white sugar
And again this is off an article I read, and the article did say the research was only on animals. But I want to be more aware of anything that is harmful to my family's health. I think trying to limit these additives is a great step.

    Coolio, thanks. A friend of mine was telling me just the other day that she read about a new study on aspartame and how terrible terrible it is...anyone else heard about this study?

    Most of these items can be avoided by not eating processed/packaged foods. :)
    And did you know ANY artificial sweetner is bad for you? Even Splenda! So I don't even sweeten anything anymore, unless it's my carb day. Then I use real sugar, honey, or Stevia.
    And I always thought food coloring probably wasn't good for you, but I read something the other day that said certain colors with certain numbers (prob the ones you listed! lol) are REALLY bad for you.

    I've looked at the "eating clean" magazine but I kind of think they are missing the point. This is a good blog. We can actually tell a taste difference, especially in meats and citrus fruits...... emoticon
