Neotame – Hidden danger in holiday food supply

Neotame is an artificial sweetener made by NutraSweet that is between 7,000 and 13,000 times sweeter than sucrose (table sugar). The product is attractive to food manufacturers as its use greatly lowers the cost of production compared to using sugar or high fructose corn syrup (due to the lower quantities needed to achieve the same sweetening)

By Mary Nash Stoddard
The Aspartame Consumer Safety Network

Everyone wants to indulge a sweet tooth at this festive time of year,   without suffering the inevitable consequences of weight gain. But, be   aware of the hidden (not listed on ingredient labels) dangers of  Neotame  sweetener in almost everything consumed by humans, and now even  in feed  for livestock raised for human consumption.

In 1998, Monsanto applied for FDA approval for a monster molecule,   “based on the aspartame formula” with one critical addition:   3-dimethylbutyl [listed on EPA’s most hazardous chemical list]. Neotame   is touted as being 13,000 times sweeter than sugar.

On July 5, 2002 – Monsanto’s Neotame molecule was approved by the  US  FDA over formally registered objections of the Aspartame Consumer   Safety Network and others. (Long term effects on humans are unknown.)   Read the full release on The Aspartame Consumer Safety Network.

The food labeling requirements required  for aspartame have now been  dropped for Neotame, and no one is clear  why this was allowed to happen.  Neotame has been ruled acceptable, and  without being included on the  list of ingredients, for:

  1. USDA Certified Organic food items.
  2. Certified Kosher products with the official letter k inside the circle on labels.

What’s in Fast Food? What’s in the Non-Chicken Half of the McNugget

by Dr. Joseph Mercola

Posted  by sakerfa on January 15th, 2011

(HuffingtonPost) – Do you put  dimethylpolysiloxane, an anti-foaming agent made of silicone, in your chicken
dishes? How about tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), a chemical preservative so  deadly just five grams can kill you?

These are just two of the ingredients in a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget. Only 50  percent of a McNugget is actually chicken. The other half includes corn  derivatives, sugars, leavening agents and completely synthetic ingredients. There’s no doubt processed food like that from McDonald’s is not part of a  healthful diet, and I’m grateful I’ve never had a chicken McNugget. But many  Americans cannot say the same. This sentiment was echoed by Federal Judge Robert Sweet in a lawsuit against  the restaurant chain in 2003: “Chicken McNuggets, rather than being merely  chicken fried in a pan, are a McFrankenstein creation of various elements not  utilized by the home cook.”

Time Magazine reported that Judge Sweet “questioned whether  customers understood the risks of eating McDonald’s chicken over regular  chicken.”

Sugar substitutes and the potential danger of Splenda

by Marcelle Pick, OB/GYN NP

Few of us are really aware of how many new Splenda® products there are in the supermarkets. We’ve been told that this artificial sweetener is different from all the past failures — Sweet’N Low®, NutraSweet®, etc. — and according to the claims, that this Splenda is the perfect sugar substitute: as sweet as sugar, but no calories; as sweet as sugar, but no surge in insulin; as sweet as sugar, but no side effects or long-term health damage.

The wave is coming because “low–sugar” or “sugar–free” is the latest fad — a welcome trend, given the health hazards of all the sugar in the average diet. But of the hundreds of new diet foods that will soon appear, most will use Splenda as a sugar substitute. This is important because for tens of millions of women, their diet soda or artificially-sweetened food is a keystone of what they think are healthy nutrition and food choices — both for themselves and for their families.

On the other side of the argument are responsible experts who say that Splenda is unsafe — the latest in a succession of artificial sweeteners that claim at first to be healthy, only later to be proven to be full of side effects. These authorities say that Splenda has more in common with DDT than with food.

What do we believe? We think that our regulatory system doesn’t do a good enough job ensuring our long-term safety. We’re concerned about the bigger picture, too — the dependence on sweets in the American diet to make us feel good — whether those sweets are satisfied by sugar or artificial sweeteners like Splenda. And we are especially sensitive to the women who can benefit from using artificial sweeteners as a bridge to a better life with healthier nutrition.

What should you think about artificial sweeteners? We want you to be fully informed about the dangers of Splenda (which isn’t what food marketers want!) so you can make the best choices for yourself and for your family. So let’s make sure you are.
