Food Additives F.D.A.
Additive Requirements Aspartame detialed report created by regulatory specialists Articles

A low-calorie sweetening ingredient
that tastes like sugar and is used in
many foods we consume every day. Purple Where can we find Aspartame? Aspartame was denied 8 times by the FDA before it was approved carbonated beverages
dairy products
fruit spreads
chewing gums
tabletop sweetener chemical identity, intended use, restrictins, labeling requirements, permitted diluents after submitting the detialed report they will recieve... VERY IMPORTANT FEEDBACK. batch treatment protocol, record-keeping requirements, recommended best practices

each individual additive needs to be proposed to the FDA seperately if approved... http://us.cdn2.123rf.com/168nwm/eyematrix/eyematrix1102/eyematrix110200021/8898160-rejected-rubber-stamp.jpg initial report fee
$295 certification filing fee
Even researcher Ann Reynolds who was hired by Searle (founder of aspartame) reported that aspertame was dangerous
The FDA board said that they "had not been presented with proof of reasonable certainty that aspartame is safe for use as a food additive" Arthur Hayes, newly appointed FDA Comissioner of 1981, overruled thhe scientific review pannel and allowed aspartame into our foods. ^Dispite the fact that 3 out of the six scientists were against it. He also got it approved for beverages, even though the National Soft Drink Association was against it. Aspartame victim support groups have been created for the many who have become sick from aspartame. Now, there are 92 known side effects for aspartame Some of these include: Memory loss Nerve cell damage Migraines Reproductive disorders Mental confusion Brain lesions Joint pain Alzheimer's Bloating nervous system disorders Hair loss Food cravings weight gain Methyl alcohol, an ingredient of aspertaim, converts into a deadly neurotoxin called formaldehyde when injested Sweet & Low contains a coal-tar compound called saccharin Equal contains phenylalanine can increase your chances for seizures, depression, and schizophrenia Green Mcdonals cooks it's french fries in 93% beef tallow. That's more saturated beef fat per ounce than a Mcdonald's hamburer! Things that say they have "Natural flavor" and "Artificial flavor" have more similarities than differences. both are man-made additives they are used to give flavor to processed foods that have lost their taste due to canning, freezing, and dehydration (International Flavors & Fragrances) The IFF is responsible for the flavor of: Potato chips Corn chips Breads Crackers Breakfast cerals Pet food Ice cream Cookies Candies Toothpastes Mouthwashes Antacids and more... IFF also makes scents for Clinique's "Happy" Estée Lauder's "Beautiful" Lancôme's "Trésor"
Calvin Klein's "Eternity" The basic science behind your household products are the same that have created your meals <The American flavor industry now has annual revenues of approximatly 1.4 billion The fda does not require flavor companies to disclose the ingredients of their additives. A typical Burger King strawberry shake contains Amyl acetate,
amyl butyrate,
amyl valerate,
anisyl formate,
benzyl acetate,
benzyl isobutyrate,
butyric acid,
cinnamyl isobutyrate,
cinnamyl valerate,
cognac essential oil,
dipropyl ketone,
ethyl acetate ehyl amylketone,
ethyl butyrate etyl cinnamate,
ethyl heptanoate,
ethyl heptylate,
ethl lactate,
ethyl methylphenylglycidate,
ethyl nitrate ethyl propionate,
ethyl valerate,
hydroxyphenyl-2-butanone(10 percent solution in alcohol),
isobutyl anthranilate,
isobutyl butyrate,
lemon essential oil,
methyl anthranilate,
methyl benzoate,
methyl cinnamate,
methyl heptine carbonate,
methyl napthyl ketone,
methyl salicyate,
mint essential oil,
neroli essential oil,
neryl isobutyrate,
orris butter,
phenethyl alchol,
rum ether,
and solvent. Artificial flavors have been around before the 1960's A professer at Cornell University said that natural flavor "Is a flavor that's been derived with an out-of-date technology" Natural and artificial flavors sometimes contain the exact same chemicals Natural flavor is not necessarily healthier Cochineal extract ( aka carmine or carminic acid), is made from the desiccated bodies of female Dactlyopius coccus Costa, a small insect harvested in Peru and the Canary Islands. Theses bugs feed on red cactus berries and the color from the berries accumulate in the female's unhatched larvae. The insects are collected, dried and ground into a pigment. Dannon strawberry yogurt gets it's color from Carmine, and many candies, frozen fruit bars, fruit fillings, and Ocean Spray pink-grapefruit juice. Blue Orange Sugar may be found in places you would never guess "Sugar is like crack...you'll keep coming back for more" During the refining process of the sugar cane plant there are many important things destroyed Enzymes Fiber Vitamins Minerals No nutritional value in refined sugar In food that has a TON of Fat Calories Cholesterol Saturated Fat Hydrogenated Oils Refinded sugar has been linked to: Hypoglycemia Yeast Overgrowth Weakended Immune System Hyperactivity ADD Enlargement of kidneys or liver Increase of uric acid in the blood Mental and Emotional Disorders Dental Cavities
Imbalance of Neurotransmitters in the Brain Juice
Soda Beer Yogurt Energy Bars Cookies Candies Breads Frozen Foods High Fructose Corn Syrup Dramatic effect on Blood-sugar Levels Diabetes and Obesity: directly linked to eating refined sugar and fructose corn syrup Animals in tight spaces Imprisoned In Buildings Branding Burns testicles, tails, ears, teeth and horns ripped off Urine, Feces, and Vomit with Infected Festering sores and wounds Unsanitary Conditions Antibiotic resistance to consumers Eating Beef = Urinary Tract Infections Partial list of what's in Meat, Poultry, Seafood, and Dairy: Benzene Hexachloride (BHC) Chlordane Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) Dieldrin Dioxin Heptachlor Hexachlorobenzene Lindane Linked to:
Liver, Kidney, Lung and Reproductive Disorders
Birth Defects
Nervious System Disorders Exposed = killed by pesticides BHC=19X more carcinogenic than DDT Chlordane= 4X more Dieldrin= 47 to 85X more HCB=23X more Heptachlor = 15 to 30X more Of 450 species of Endangered animals, half were threatened more Meat, Fish, Dairy, and Eggs are 95-99% of Toxic chemicals in food Bacon=48 different pesticide residues Bologna and other luncheon meants=102 different industrial pollutants and pesticides Fast food Hamburgers= 113 residues Hot dogs= 123 residues Ground Beef= 82 industrial chemical and pesticide residues Meat = 4X more pesticides than Plant foods FACTS: Every year- One billion pounds of pesticides= US Many animals given Arsenic-laced drugs 200 times sweeter than sugar
it can replace up to 99 percent of the calories in soft drinks. Arsenic-Laced drugs given to many animals Animal skin often sprayed with chemical pesticides Steroids and growth hormones given to animals- more products mean more money to farmers Eating factory-farmed chicken, beef, veal, pork, eggs, or dairy = (basically) eating Antibiotics, pesticides, steroids, and hormones REGULATIONS: “The essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional” (21CFR101.22). The definition of Natural flavoring by the Code of Federal Regulations Artificial flavorings are simpler in composition and potentially safer because only safety-tested components are utilized.

Preservatives in Meat Antioxidants Corn Syrup Gelatin Sugar Texturizers/stabilizers/thickeners How do these affect our body? may be harmful if exposed consistently for long periods of time Immediate Effects Headaches Change in energy levels Alterations in mental concentration Immune response Behavior Potasium Bromate Makes bread stronger and more elastic It's illegal in Canada and the European Union Can cause cancer Twinkies Ingredients come from phosphate mines in Idaho, gypsum mines in Oklahoma, and oil fields in China Contains thirty-nine ingredients One of those ingredients is a preservative, sorbic acid, which is actually derived from natural gas Cellulose gum, Polysorbate 60, and calcium sulfate are also used in sheet rock, shampoo, and rocket fuel. The vitamins, artificial colors, and flavorings in Twinkies come from petroleum. Limestone that makes Twinkies light. The tasty cream center is made of shortening; there is absolutely no cream in the cream. Corn dextrin adds a certain cohesiveness to that sticky Twinkie crust. But in a separate life, corn dextrin also serves as a glue. In fact, it's the glue that you find on the back of envelopes. All the fresh ingredients they replace for a longer shelf life makes twinkies last for months. What do other countries allow in terms of food additives? All additives in the UK and Europe are controlled by law, and can only be used following stringent tests and approval by an independent committee of scientists and medical experts. Europe has a numbering system called the “e-numbers” and each food additive has its own unique number. These additives can be natural, semi-synthetic, or synthetic which are licensed by the European Union (EU) and the e-numbers run from E100 to E1999 and are found in processed foods. United States has the most additives in their food out of all the countries, resulting in us having the most behavior problems Iceland banned artificial colors and flavors. How is this a global issue that affects us? Food additives that are not allowed in the United States are being sold to other countries around the world for them to be used in their food products and the United States is buying it back from them. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/video/navigating-food-additives-9375956 http://digitaljournal.com/article/314408
