Beware...Neotame is out there stalking us!

Monday, July 29, 2013

This was on Teresa' Tapp's newsletter today. I think it is REALLY important information. Beware!!!

"Another of Monsanto's chemical catastrophes is hitting the shelves now... and you won't even know it's in your food. Neotame, which is aspartame (ie. Equal and Nutrasweet) on steroids, is 3,000 times sweeter than regular sugar and 30 times sweeter than aspartame. It is being used in commercially processed foods but it is not required to be listed on the label of organic processed products either because it falls below the 3% limit needed to be listed. Monsanto developed Neotame because their patent on aspartame was running out. For most people, Neotame produces instant nausea even in small amounts! People often ask me why aspartame is so bad; when our bodies break down these chemical sweeteners, a byproduct is formaldehyde. Formaldehyde even in small amounts is highly toxic to our bodies! I think we've all become dedicated label readers but this new move to ruin our food supply is beyond believable. If you find that you experience effects from aspartame or suspect that Neotame might be silently making you ill, you can file a report with the US Food and Drug Administration at FDA Safety Reports. Grrrrrr!"

    emoticon Creepy!
I read that this stuff is especially bad because no safety studies have ever been conducted on it! Can you believe that? The only extensive "study" done was one conducted by NutrSweet - yet the FDA approved it as a food additive.
Makes you wonder what else is in food that we don't have a clue about...

    Thanks for the heads up. We never buy the stuff so need to know when it's secretly in food.

    I've heard of this but I didn't realize it could be in my organic food. This sucks! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I get Migraines from aspartame with 30 minutes of eating it. I hope they change that rule because some people can't have it and a lot don't want to eat it. Thank you for the information, I will pass it on because I know several people that get sick because of aspartame.
