List of harmful E additives.!.

An additive or food additive is a chemical additive to a food that is used for the purpose of preserving, thickening or diluting, coloring or “adding” flavorings to it.

Additive codes are most often given as “E ***” (E + three-digit number).

Little is known about the impact of additives on human health. Some research has shown that individual additives are very dangerous and harmful to health.

Each additive is listed with a number. In Europe, an E-number system has been set up for all permitted additives. The Codex Alimentarius system contains international identifications of all additives, regardless of marketing authorizations.

Food additives can be divided into the following groups:

Acids are added for their pungent taste, as well as antioxidants and preservatives. Commonly used: vinegar, citric acid, tartaric acid, malic acid, fumaric acid, lactic acid.

Acidity regulators change and regulate the acidity or alkalinity of foods.

The stick preservatives prevent the powders from sticking to and sticking together.

Anti-foaming agents reduce or prevent foaming of food.

Antioxidants are used as preservatives as they prevent oxidation of foods.

Rising agents increase the volume of food while maintaining nutritional value.
dyes

Nutritional dyes are added to foods for a more attractive appearance

Emulsifiers allow water and oils to remain homogenized (example: milk) and in an emulsion (example: mayonnaise, ice cream).

Flavor enhancers accentuate existing food flavors.

Moisture preservatives prevent food from drying out.

Preservatives prevent food from spoiling due to mold, bacteria and other microorganisms.
stabilizers

Stabilizers, thickeners and gelling agents give foods a firmer structure.

Sweeteners are given to foods because of their taste. Sweeteners replace sugar due to their low caloric value.
