What do these major brands such as Subway, McDonalds, Burger King, Sara Lee, Pillsbury, Jimmy Dean, Little Debbie, Kroger, Tyson and Wonder have in common? Azodicarbonide (aka ADA). What the heck is that? It's a polymer plastic gel that bubbles and foams used to make your flip flops and yoga mats! The food industry realized that it foams so well that they use it as a dough conditioner and bleaching agent in bake goods. The result, spongy and light bread that has a long shelf life lasting 2 years from date of manufacture. Yummy!
Pretty shocking to think that our food industry creates interesting ways for preserve shelf life of food, dough conditioners on bread and bleaching agents in pastries. Most health problems are generated because our body cannot recognize these synthetic chemicals. Over time the breakdown of such chemicals, wreak havoc in your system leading to a myriad of conditions such as autoimmune disorders, neurological disease and digestive dysfunction to name a few.
Here are some facts about Azodicarbonimide that I found from the Food Babe, Vani Hari. Her fight and stand is amazing. She has generated much buzz in the food industry to investigate, reveal and remove harmful agents.
