A to Z Toxic Ingredients in Food
Ever wonder what’s really in the food sold at grocery stores around the world? People keep asking, “What ingredients should I avoid?” Here is a short list that covers all the most toxic and disease-promoting ingredients in the food supply.
I hope you find this article helpful on the hidden toxins in food. My suggestion, as always, to my clients and students is to read labels, read labels, read labels.
Toxic, cancer-causing chemicals formed in foods when carbohydrates are exposed to high heat (baking, frying, and grilling). They’re present in everything from bread crusts to snack chips, and because they aren’t intentional ingredients, acrylamides do NOT have to be listed on labels.
This is a Chemical sweetener that causes neurological disorders, seizures, blurred vision and migraine headaches.
Highly processed form of protein containing free glutamate and used to mimic the taste-enhancer chemical MSG.
A hormone mimicking chemical found in nearly all food packaging plastics. Active in just parts per billion, BPA promotes cancer, infertility and hormone disorders. It also “feminizes” males, promoting male breast growth and hormone disruption.
Milk proteins! Hilariously, this is widely used in “soy cheese” products that claim to be alternatives to cow’s milk. Nearly all of them are made with cow’s milk proteins.
