Day 330- Nutrition Bite

Food additives that certain people should avoid are artificial colorings (yellow 5), caffeine, carmine, casein, cochineal, gums, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, lactose, MSG, mycoprotein, quinine, sodium benzoate, sodium caseinate, and sulfites. Some of these foods with additives have been known to cause birth defects, digestive complications, hives, nausea, diarrhea, asthma, etc... A few foods are carbonated drinks, dried fruit, processed potatoes, breakfast pastries, tonic water, meat substitutes, beef stew, cottage cheese, ice cream, and salad dressings.

I know the list might be overwhelming. My caution would be if you have adverse reactions, limit your intake of food additives. Stick with natural brands such as Organic Valley, Amy's, and Kashi.
