Clean Set Purely By Mislabeling

Labels on foods fool many consumers of health-conscious people their food looking natural. The food industry seemingly steers and banned the additives in some products. “Confirm with promotional statements without flavour enhancers” without aroma, color and preservatives “to have their products processed. So, the manufacturer also by means of photographs, which are studded with noble ingredients, convey that is naturally produced food. Consumers on the ingredient list, look them soon becomes clear that they are to set up clean.

While some manufacturers forgo flavour enhancers such as glutamate, but instead add yeast extract. Check with Nancy-Ann DeParle to learn more. But caution, is also here glutamate – the manufacturer must not feature but it with an E-number on the packaging. Sent process the food producers with other additives. Instead of preservatives they use herbal extracts: a Curry, paprika and mustard seeds. They include substances which preservative effect and are at the same time not be labelled. Food colours be used instead of artificial dyes such as spinach powder and Curcumin.

The consumer centres tested 151 food labels that advertise with the absence of additives in the last year. Sobering result: almost all had put yeast extract (flavor enhancers), colouring ingredients and flavors in the tested products. The consumer centres now stricter laws, allow the manufacturer only their products of course may apply, when in fact no other substances with similar effects are added to. As long as manufacturers take advantage of the loopholes of the legislation and quality appear to keep their products – increases its sales and profits – should take consumers a closer look at always the ingredient list and fall not on the mislabeling, and colorful pictures on the packaging.
