Dr. Meaghan and Wendy discuss the different food additives that the US allows in their food.  We discuss the health impacts of these different food additives that are added to the food in order to ease processing, packaging, and storage.  We will talk about some changes that have occurred recently in  the food industry and praise Chipotle for the changes they are making!

 

Podcast 008: Food additives

General Mills has announced this week that they will remove all food colorings and additives from their popular cereal Trix.  These kind of manufacture based changes come from consumer driven demand. 

There has been a switch where consumers have started to demand healthier options.  This is a great trend to see!

www.foodmatters.tv is a great website with lots of information about health and wellness.  It is based on a documentary called Food Matters.  This is a great documentary about how our food choices have changed and how it is affecting us.

The US has been using different food additives over the last 50-60 years.  We now have about 9000 different additives.  Most other countries , like Norway, France, and Germany, have banned most of these additives.

Blue #1 and Blue #2, Yellow #6, and Red dye #3 are some of the biggest culprits and have been linked to certain health concerns such as chromosomal damage.

“Be kind to others, take care of yourself, and make good choices”
