Common Additives In Foods

>> Monday, January 5, 2009

What will you find in your food after you read those labels. Lots of chemicals added to enhance the flavor and life of your food. This will be a three part process on listing those ingredients that can reak havoc on your body. Especially those who are considering the Feingold diet or are worried about additives. This list is taken from a book called," Why Can't My Child Behave?" By: Jane Hersey

Although it's possible to be sensitive to anything, most food additives present no problem, even for the chemically sensitive individual. Here are some of the ones in common use.

Additives that are NOT allowed on the Feingold Diet:

Artificial flavoring
Aspartame (synthetic sweetner)
BHA(butylated hydroxyanisole)
BHT(butylated hydroxytoluene)
Citrus Red No. 2
Cyclamate (synthetic sweetner)
Ethyl Vanillin (synthetic/artificial flavoring)
FD&C colors
MSG (monosodium glutamate)
Neotame (new more potent form of aspartame)
Saccharin (synthetic/artificial sweetner)
Tartrazine(FD&C yellow No. 5, synthetic/artificial coloring)
TBHQ(tertiary buty hydroquinone)
Vanillin(artificial flavoring)

This is just a start, and there are some that can have a potential effect on those who are chemically sensitive. Once you think about it and find out what exactly is in these additives you would want to eat from the ground up and not from the boxes of food you buy at the store.
