Food additives: ugh! Here is some of the latest information.
“Deciding what foods to buy was simpler when most food came from farms. Now, factory-made foods have made chemical additives a significant part of our diet.
In general, it’s best to avoid the following ingredients.
- Aspartame, Acesulfame-K, Saccharin, Sucralose
- Food dyes
- Mycoprotein (Quorn-brand meat substitutes)
- Partially hydrogenated oils (trans fat)
And don’t forget to cut back on sugar and salt, which cause more harm than all the other additives combined.”
