Shocked by his discovery, the institute filed a formal complaint in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US, begging them to investigate the activities of some manufacturers of yogurt on the market because it did not meet the legal definition of yogurt. Yogurt is a favorite snack for millions of people, iits refreshing, full of useful bacteria and vitamins, but do you really know everything it contains? Recently a new report appeared from the Cornucopia Institute which criticizes the modern food industry.
They argue that its easily to buy yogurt which has a lot of explored additives. The shocking discovery of this Institute draws attention to the harmful ingredients that are not marked on the packaging. Institute spent two years exploring the leading brands of yogurt and came to the shocking findings. Their findings show that some yogurts contain worrisome ingredients not mentioned in the declaration. Shocked by his discovery, the institute filed a formal complaint in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US, begging them to investigate the activities of some manufacturers of yogurt on the market because it did not meet the legal definition of yogurt. These are the four very dangerous ingredients in yogurts.
Polysaccharide derived from red algae. For four decades, scientists have warned that the use of carrageenan is not safe for food consumption.
Studies show that this polysaccharide is associated with the occurrence of gastro-intestinal inflammation and a higher rate of occurrence of inflammation of the intestinal lesions, ulcers and even cancers. However, manufacturers ignore it and continue to use this ingredient in yogurt.
Appled in restaurants as a means against formation of foam trays. Also used in the production of yogurt. However, its not mentioned on the label, even if it remains in sediment in the yogurt. The World Health Organization declared the substance safe and FDA allows to be kept by means of formaldehyde, known gaseous compound that causes oxidative stress and increases the risk of immune disorders and cancer.
This toxic additive is a variation of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which contain much higher levels of HFC. According to the long-term study at Princeton University, the effect of consumption of HFCS is more dangerous than the use of other simple sugars such as sucrose. The study found that HFCS-90 not only contributes to the accumulation of fat, but also significantly increases obesity, increases blood pressure, contributes to coronary artery disease, the occurrence of diabetes and cancer. Manufacturers of yogurt cite HFCS-90 as “fructose” or “fructose syrup”, terms that can be associated with natural sugars from fruits. However, there is a big difference between them!
This highly processed form of sugar cant be absorbed in the digestive tract of humans. Any processed sugar cane or sugar beet is usually genetically modified. Its treated with hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide and activated carbon treatment.
Other chemicals are added to yogurt
The report from the Cornucopia Institute also reveals other harmful ingredients added to yogurt.
