Kitchen Cupboard Detox (Part 2)

Be sure to catch the first part of this article! detox- copy Artificial Colours like Yellow #5: Almost all colorants approved for use in food are derived from coal tar and may contain up to 10ppm of lead and arsenic. Artificial OR Natural Flavours: Okay, so the avoiding anything artificial is smart, but you also have to be careful with anything that says ‘natural flavours’ as well! Food labeling is very sneaky and GMO flavour enhancers can be listed under the natural or artificial labels. Propylene glycol alginate (E405): this food thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier is derived from alginic acid esterified and combined with propylene glycol. Bear in mind that even though propylene glycol is used as a food additive, it has many industrial uses including automotive antifreezes and airport runway de-icers. Polysorbate 60: short for polyoxyethylene-(20)- sorbitan monostearate this emulsifier is widely used in the food industry. Made of corn, palm oil and petroleum, this gooey mix can’t spoil, so it often replaces dairy products in baked goods and other liquid products. Enriched flour: these pretzels are made with enriched flour. But don’t let the attractive description mislead you: like most highly processed foods, enriched flour is devoid of nutrients and more often than not it is also bleached. Since the wheat germ and bran are removed from this type of flour, the body treats it as a refined starch. Cheap Oils Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils: Synthetic trans fats are known to promote inflammation, which is a hallmark of most chronic and/or serious diseases.They are found in packaged foods such as crackers, chips, most store-bought baked goods, and any fried foods, just to name a few examples. Soybean oil:You might have guessed, but soybean oil is a big reason why so much of the soy crops are GMO. Soybean oil is a common additive in processed and packaged foods because it is subsidized by the government, making it an obvious choice for food manufactures’ concern with their bottom line Canola Oil:Also, GMO unless stated otherwise. Canola is another cheap oil that is used in many premade, packaged and processed foods. It is commonly used in restaurants for cooking oils, which is another good reason to cook your meals at home. It is very important for your overall health that you avoid these acidifying chemicals that can cause a variety of undesirable side effects, besides accelerate your bone loss, they can cause you a lot of trouble with your digestion, brain function and kick start chronic and degenerative disease!
