Just how much extra chemicals, preservatives and additives go into the food that you and your family eat on a daily basis? It has been found that in the United States, consumers spend nearly 90% of their food budget on foods that are processed! And when you think that nearly all processed foods contain additives and chemicals , what exactly are you eating?
Many common food additives and chemicals are food colorings or flavor additives that are commonly referred to as high fructose corn syrup, food dye and sodium nitrite. With countless artificial sweeteners and food coloring in nearly 9 out of 10 food products consumers purchase, just how safe are these additives?
The Food and Drug Administration has approved over 3,000 additives for use in food products in the United States, but many of these additives go under vague names such as Blue #4 and Chicken Flavoring, which leaves the consumer in the dark as to what exactly is in the product they are eating! For example, an artificial sweetener used in many products such as soft drinks, cookie dough and gum is actually called Acesulfame-Potassium. This “sweetener” is OVER 200 TIMES SWEETER than natural sugar! In addition, it was tested laboratory rats and scientists found that in large doses Acesulfame-Potassium negatively affected the thyroid gland.
This product is one of thousands that are found in nearly every processed food in grocery stores across the country. As a consumer, how can you ensure that you are feeding you and your family natural, unprocessed foods that are SAFE?
