Food Additives

Food additives are man made chemicals that are added to our food to enhance its flavour, shelf-life and appearance.  Also note that some chemicals can be natural occurring ones but this blog is concerned with the ones found in processed foods that is fuelling the obesity epidemic.

"Food additives have become commonplace in our modern diet but do they really “add” any value to our food?"

It might be common knowledge to you that most processed foods are not ideal for our health. These foods are often laden with artificial chemicals which can cause all sorts of havoc to our body.
Typically these food additives are not easy to identify, as they are hidden under a variety of names and codes and usually in very small font (click the link to read more and download your free copy of 'The top 10 Food Additives to Avoid').

Another very informative site is The Food Additives & Ingredients Association

I believe any great information we can source to help us make the right decision on that next visit to the supermarket is crucial.

All the best,
Till next time
