Why phosphate additives will be the next taboo ingredient

This time, it’s something most people would consider to be healthy: grilled chicken breasts. I’m one of the instigators. I was contacted by the producers of “CBC Marketplace,” an investigative consumer TV program, to examine the nutrition and ingredients in fast food chicken breasts. Along with sodium, that common nutrition and health scapegoat, there was a group of ingredients I flagged that the producers had never heard of before: phosphate additives.

Mark my words, phosphate additives will be the trans fats of the future; at one time prevalent throughout our food supply, and eventually banned due to overwhelming evidence of their negative impact on human health.

The association has launched a “five-part initiative to help modernize the process” of evaluating whether additives should be considered safe, including establishing a “GMA-sponsored database” that will provide the FDA and “other stakeholders” access to the food industry’s safety assessments of its own products. Hold up a minute: The FDA doesn’t already have its hands on the data food companies have been using to determine whether the additives they’re putting into the food we eat are safe for human consumption?

China has experienced an impressive growth in middle-class consumer spending! " That's generally seen as a 'good thing' in economics. But let's just take a moment to see what the consequences have been - or, in other words, what are the Chinese spending their money on? For one - they spend more money on crappy food that's filled with sugar. This is great news for companies like KFC, Coca Cola and McDonalds. The same pattern occurred in America - where Diabetes, obesity and heart conditions have become a major health problem. So - what's the deal with sugar? Now - aren't there scientific studies being done on these types of health-hazards, where, if certain foods have been established to be harmful, it'll have governments place a ban on those foods?

Nestlé retira macarrão instantâneo Maggi das prateleiras na Índia. RIO — A Nestlé, que enfrenta uma crise de reputação na Índia, tirou seus macarrões instantâneos Maggi das lojas do país nesta sexta-feira, após testes feitos pela agência reguladora alegarem que alguns pacotes continham excesso de chumbo.

Após ter sido alvo de críticas por não reagir de forma rápida e decisiva, a Nestlé curvou-se às pressões no início desta sexta-feira e anunciou um recall na Índia. Em um esforço para sufocar a mais significativa crise alimentar na Índia em quase uma década, a gigante suíça enviou o presidente do grupo, Paul Bulcke, para acalmar consumidores em uma coletiva de imprensa televisionada. Ele enfrentou tumulto, e foi frequentemente calado por jornalistas indianos. Mas afirmou, durante a coletiva, que os macarrões eram “aptos para o consumo”. “Retiramos do mercado por causa da confusão, já que a confiança do consumidor foi afetada”, disse. O estado de Uttar Pradesh, por sua vez, decidiu processar a filial indiana da Nestlé.
