Do you know the worst ingredient in conventional meat sticks?
-Fed grain which is not what they would eat in nature and creates a meat that is different that what nature intended it to be. Water
- highly processed sugar that is made up of GMO, Chemically Sprayed Corn,
food-derived agents that add taste to food products.
Artificial flavors, on the other hand, are derived from synthetic sources[*].
Sadly, many companies use synthetic solvents and preservatives in their flavor cocktails. The FDA is fairly lenient on this point, allowing an army of strange chemicals to lurk, unlisted, on the ingredient label
The FDA has acknowledged this problem, considering “the term ‘natural’ to mean that nothing artificial or synthetic” has been added to the food product. But this message is merely guidance, not regulation[*].
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG),
-the salt chemically derived from erythorbic acid.
-eccelerates the cure and makes it the bright red color
Many people are sensitive to MSG and don’t realize it. This means you may experience headaches and migraines, flushing, sweating, numbness, chest pain, nausea, and even heart palpitations after eating[*].
What’s worse is that MSG has been shown to increase your appetite and make you hungry for more calories — definitely not what you need if weight loss is your goal.
Lactic Acid Starter Culture,
- chemically processed and prolong shelf life and give more color and flavor
Bha-Butylated hydroxyanisole- chemical food additive
Bht,- food preservitice to keep fats from going rancid
What food additive does the Food and Drug Administration deem "generally recognized as safe," while the National Institutes of Health, says it's "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen- a substance capable of causing cancer in living tissue.
safflower oil is perhaps the worst. That’s because it has more linoleic acid — an inflammatory and easily spoiled polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) — than any other oil on the market[*].
Casing (Caramel, Red 3).
The processed food industry uses food dyes to make unhealthy food look appealing.
Americans now consume five times more artificial food dyes than when they were first approved by the FDA in the early 1960s[*]. They’re in sliced cheese, pickles, sugar-free drinks and candies, sausages, and more.
Both the UK and the EU have taken actions to ban artificial food colorings since lab studies have connected these potential carcinogens with cancer, an increase in allergies, and hyperactivity in children[*][*].
