- In the USA –
- Two prominent dairy associations have filed a petition with the FDA requesting the agency “amend the standard of identity” for milk and 17 other dairy products to provide for the use of any safe and suitable sweetener as an optional ingredient—including non-nutritive sweeteners such as aspartame to deceive you by not having to indicate its use on the label
- The FDA already allows the dairy industry to use the unmodified “milk” label for products that contain added sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Because of this, the petitioners maintain that “consumers can more easily identify the overall nutritional value of milk products that are flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners if the labels do not include such claims”
- Aspartame, E951, is the most dangerous food additive on the market today, accounting for over 75 percent of adverse reactions reported to the FDA, including seizures and death
- (TAP – It’s in all squashes and cordials in the supermarket given to children all over the western world as the most natural drink for children. Yet no one realises.)
- Methyl alcohol is metabolized differently in the human body compared to other animals, and is FAR more toxic in humans which is why studies have trouble nailing down the hazards related to aspartame
- Methyl alcohol, after it is taken up by the body as a “Trojan Horse” into susceptible tissues like the brain, converts rapidly into formaldehyde. This causes severe damage to proteins and DNA that can contribute to many serious and chronic diseases, such as cancer, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
TAP – High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a known cause of obesity, diabetes and other undesirable health effects. Better to buy unsweetened products all round. Muscovado sugar – partly refined cane sugar – is the most natural form of sweetener as far as I know.
At some point all this food tampering will surely backfire.
Raw milk is by far the best way to drink milk.
