Which food additives add in the food

Food additives are substances added to food to preserve flavor or enhance its taste and appearance. Some additives have been used for centuries; for example, preserving food by pickling (with vinegar), salting, as with bacon, preserving sweets or using sulfur dioxide as in some wines. With the advent of processed foods in the second half of the 20th century, many more additives have been introduced, of both natural and artificial origin. The current society food additives were used extensively. They make the food to be delicious and to keep a long time. But if the food additives use too much it will be harmful to our health.

There are many food additives in the food. There are “Artificial Sweeteners, Monosodium Glutamate,Trans Fat Sodium Sulfite Sodium Nitrite” and so on these are usually to use in the food. Sodium Sulfite is a kind of preservative, it usually use in wine-making and other processed foods.The majority of these individuals are asthmatic, suggesting a link between asthma and sulfites. Individuals who are sulfite sensitive may experience headaches, breathing problems, and rashes. In severe cases, sulfites can actually cause death by closing down the airway altogether, leading to cardiac arrest. Thought It look very dangerous, but it has to used it. Because it make the food to keep a long time.

Thought the food additives are allowed to used but we don’t know what food additives would be added in the food. As we all know many food additives is dangerous for the health. For example Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil is usually usthe-truth-about-food-additivesed in the fast food Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil is a semi-solid fat created when food processors force hydrogen into unsaturated fatty acids. Partially hydrogenated fats are the principle sources of trans fat in the American diet, that is fast food. The good news: Partially hydrogenated oils are beginning to slowly retreat from our food. Progressive jurisdictions like New York City are starting to restrict the allowable amounts in restaurants, and many chains are switching to healthier frying oil, but some merchant maybe cut down the cost still to use the partially hydrogenated fats. Thought it is nontoxic, if the human eat over the limit that trans fat causes heart attacks. So I think it is harmful to the health. Actually much puffed food for example chips, the most part is oil, about 30% is oil, it is very unhealthy. But it is delicious, and many Youngers like the chip. It can cause the person to be fat. So I suggest the Youngers decrease to eat chip time. And you will have a rule habit to eat the food.

The incorrect use the food additives make person to die

The current there are many events about the food poisoning to cause the person die. And then we will know a kind of the dangerous food additives. Why when person would die with the food additives the media will tell the truth in the event. 2008 Chinese milk scandal) is China’s food safety incidents together. Incident involved a lot of eating Sanlu baby milk powder produced was found to have kidney stones, followed by chemicals melamine were found in its milk powder. According to published figures, as of September 21, 2008, due to the use of infant formula and outpatient rehabilitation therapy counseling and has accumulated 39,965 infants who are hospitalized have 12,892 people, 1,579 peou=2675094783,1537680858&fm=21&gp=0ple had been cured, death four people, As of the September 25, there are five people in Hong Kong, Macao people have a diagnosed illness. It is severity event. The melamine is a kind of the food additives. But it is a harmful additive. It can`t used in the food. The supplier used it in the milk. They cut down the cost but many children would die with these milk. The food additives make the people to die. I think the food additives must be pass detection for innocuity of the health. The current show much compound food. Used the chemistry additives compound food taste. For example used the chemistry additives chicken change taste makes it to become beef taste. It has possibility to realize. I think it is very grand on the diet. But they are harmful on the health. The first is carcinogenic problem. Such as certain artificial sweeteners, colorings and other tests confirmed the animal carcinogenicity. Such as butter yellow pigment can be induced liver cancer in rats, sweeteners glargine and phenyl urea can cause animal tumors. In recent years, also found in food coloring agent sodium nitrite, amine and meat, fish react to form a strong carcinogenic nitroso compounds. The then is Acute and chronic toxicity problems. Because the manufacture of additives impure and contaminated materials used several toxic compounds, causing people to acute and chronic poisoning. These two are big problems in the food additives. After all, is not a natural food additive food ingredients, such as improper use of the additive itself or mixed with some harmful ingredients, it may bring some harm to human health. Thought the food additives isn`t Illegal additives, the food additives must control use. Even if Add food additives legally harmless, but also not good for health

The current the Youngers` health is not very good before. The Diabetes and Subhealth show the low age people. Because these people do the work very busy and they eat the food not very rule. So their health are not vFood-Additives-Examplesery good and then the food that they use the food additives is not any nourishment. They aren’t any helpful to them become heartier. So I think the food use less the food additives. I didn’t think that using the food additive is mistake. After all they are not good for our health.

Food additives for improving food color, smell, taste and other quality, as well as the need for preservation or processing of the compounds into food quality or natural substances. So I think it is grand, the food additives must manage in the law and must pass the detection. All the food additives write the back of the packaging. The customs safety to buy this goods.
