7 Scary Food Additives

It’s so easy to encourage one another to read our food labels. On the other hand, what’s the point, when they are so dang hard to interpret? Acesulfame Potassium? Monosodium Glutamate? Sounds complicated and probably harmless. Right?

I wish that was the world we live in. But honestly, becoming food consious is not easy. It’s also kind of a scary place to venture.

But if you are ready for the journey (which I really hope you are!) check out this image from naturallysavvy.com that helps to break down 7 food additives that we as consumers should be looking out for.



Unfortunately if your diet reflects the typical North American, these food additives are all over your kitchen. My advice? Start small – swap out your dressing for one with less preservatives, or make cookies at home instead of buying them from the store.

Me? I’m going to print this out and put it right on my fridge – as a way of holding myself accountable for my choices.

  1. This is so so informative. I had no idea some of those ingredients had some of those affects. Thanks for sharing, I’m going to have to print one out myself.
