Tartrazine and Food Intolerance. UK ban cites ADHD, Allergies. FDA says azo dye Red-3 Carcinogenic (chewy candy, toothpaste)

                Azo dyes are the colouring agents of choice - they account for three-fifths of all food dyes manufactured and why not ?  They're significantly brighter than their artificial alternative, the anthraquinones and they come in a variety of colors, the yellows, the oranges, the reds and any combination of the three.  In some cases they're even fed to chickens to make egg yolks more yellow.  If their use is so widespread then they must be safe to consume, right ?  Not necessarily.  Azo dyes are increasingly unpopular abroad with the ingredient having been banned in major European countries including Germany, the United Kingdom, Norway and Austria with bans in Germany and Austria lifted only after being re-evaluated for the third time by the European Union Scientific Committee For Food.  Kraft Dinner's original entrée remains colored by the dye but only in North America.

Loblaws Rethinking Frozen Cranberries

During the first week of March 2013, I paid a visit to one of Loblaws' Atlantic Superstore locations looking for frozen cranberries. 

My interest in cranberries stems from the fact that, eating cranberries is one of the easiest and most effective ways of detoxifying the body; cranberries prevent bacterial growth, they help the body detoxify naturally by cleansing the lymphatic system (responsible for neutralizing waste products and detoxifying cells).

         On December 13th Loblaw Companies (L) released a new line of gluten-free baked goods, branded under the popular President's Choice label.  Gluten-free products were previously sold at Loblaws the difference is, the majority of them were branded under mainstream labels such as Mi-Del.  More generic items made by Loblaw Companies will translate into better prices for consumers, something that could ignite an already hot market; in 2012 $4.2 billion in sales were made in the gluten-free category of the US market and that number could go up by 57% by 2017 to $6.6 billion.

Why Nutritarians Score Well in the battle against Diabetes, Autoimmune Diseases (nutrition)

          

            Nutritarians or people whose diet consists mainly of foods rich in nutrients, are at a huge advantage vs others when it comes to their immune system.  When foods are refined a lot of their nutrient content is removed (especially true in the case of refined flour), reducing their ability to help the body withstand attacks from free radicals and other sources of dna damage (phytochemical nutrients resist free radicals which in turn protects against damage to the dna nucleus and dna methylation).

Phytochemicals (naturally occuring chemical compounds found in plants) are so effective that in the distant past, they were the mainstream drugs used to treat all kinds of diseases.  Paxitacel is a widely used and effective immune-disease fighting drug derived from tree bark phytochemicals.
