Toxic Ingredients In Gluten Free Products

I have posted this letter from me to the Orgran company on Facebook.

Orgran: TOXIC Gluten Free Product's Ingredients     


Dear Orgran
I have no longer being able to enjoy your gluten free chocolate cake mix, and quite a few other products from your company. The reason for that is you use carrageenan and xantham gum in many of your gluten free products.
Both of these highly toxic ingredients wreak havoc with people who already have intestinal damage, due to being gluten intolerant or celiac. These ingredients simply have no place being in gluten free food.
Study Links Common Food Additives to Crohn's Disease and Colitis
The emulsifiers used in the study were carboxymethylcellulose and polysorbate-80. 
Similar emulsifiers include lecithin, carrageenan, polyglycerols and xanthan gum.
As a celiac I have suffered extremely bad health, and even further damage to my intestines, thanks to using many gluten free products containing one or more of these six obnoxious ingredients. I have been unable to work for two and a half years. 

It was only through a process of eliminating all gluten free processed foods from my diet, in order to heal my damaged intestines, that let me know that most gluten free products are not so natural and healthy after all.

Emulsifiers in packaged foods are wreaking havoc with our digestive tracts:  


Prevent Cancer

Buy organic, chemical, sugar and gluten free products.

Both sugar and gluten cause inflammation throughout the body, which creates an acidic environment. Cancer thrives in acidity and feeds on sugar.

Replace toxic sugar with organic Natvia. 
You can find it in the sugar section of Woolworths.

Replace toxic gluten with organic fruit, vegetables, brown rice, nuts, herbs and seeds.

Drink purified water.

Carrageenan: The Natural Ingredient You Need To Remove From Your Diet

Derived from red seaweed, carrageenan is a food grade additive primarily used as a thickener, to give various foods and beverages a fattier feel -without the full fat ingredients. On the surface it appears seemingly harmless, but its been regularly tied to various forms of unwanted body inflammation amongst other issues.
I was first made aware of carrageenan when shopping with a friend of mine at a local health food store. Having opted away from cow’s milk for quite a few years now, I’ve gone through a bevy of satisfying alternatives including rice, oat and almond milk over that time. One of my most recent and recurring choices has been an unsweetened chocolate almond milk, that I personally found to be perfect as a part of my morning protein shake.

It was as I was grabbing several of these off of the shelf, that my friend pointed out to me, that the milk I had been purchasing has carrageenan listed as one of its final ingredients. She went on to list a number of the reasons as to why I may want to avoid carrageenan, and helped me look for a potential alternative - eventually settling upon a chocolate rice milk.

This experience naturally sparked my curiosity, leading me to do some further research into carrageenan and ultimately to write this article. 
 Here is some of what I found:

What Is Carrageenan?

Carrageenan is a food grade additive derived from red seaweed that is primarily used as a thickener in various foods and beverages. Seaweed variations have been used in food production for quite some time in history to help create a gel-like texture. However in modern day, isolated carrageenan has been the variation most commonly used and it’s the one that has been tied to the most health concerns.

Currently carrageenan can be found in a number of regularly used foods and beverages including but not limited to: gluten free foods, sugar free foods, vegetarian foods, vegan foods, dairy products (ice cream, squeezable yogurts, chocolate milk), dairy alternatives (soy milk, hemp milk, almond milk), nutritional drinks (Ensure, Slimfast) and prepared foods (canned soups, microwavable dinners, pet foods).

What Health Concerns Has Carrageenan Been Tied To?

The biggest health concern that carrageenan has been regularly tied to in humans is inflammation, which may sound relatively minor, but with prolonged exposure can be tied to some serious health conditions. 

The reasoning seems to lie within the chemical structure of carrageenan, which when consumed triggers an autoimmune response within the body. For those that are unaware, an autoimmune response is when your immune system cells begin to attack your body's healthy tissue much like it would to any bacteria or a virus. 

The result of this autoimmune response stemming from carrageenan ingestion is most often inflammation of the gastrointestinal system - which is made up of the oral cavity, salivary glands, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, gall bladder and pancreas. The inflammation could initially result in something as minor as a bloated stomach, but could also extend into irritable bowel syndrome and several related diseases.

Several studies have been conducted to further explore the exact impact that carrageenan has on the human body and the results have been somewhat scattered -primarily over whether or not it warrants classification as a carcinogen. Whether it one day receives that label or not, carrageenan certainly warrants some level of warning and your consumption of it should be at least monitored. 

I am not a medical professional so I cannot prescribe anything formally, but I can only speak from my own experience and decision - which at this point is to stop consuming the products containing carrageenan (primarily the almond milk in my case) and to see how my body reacts/ feels.


Greedy Sociopaths Are Making Money Out Of Us

Nearly everything that is advertised on television, sold in supermarkets and chemists, is unhealthy for our minds and bodies. 

If we went back to what God intended for us to eat, the health of our minds and bodies would improve greatly. We would not need to visit the doctor so much.

In order to become mentally and physically healthy, we need to eat plenty of organic fruit, vegetables, brown rice, nuts, herbs and seeds. 

We need to drink 2 to 3 litres of purified water daily to eliminate toxins from our bodies..

We need to eliminate all forms of toxic sugar from our diet. Sugar makes us fat, rots our teeth, creates inflammation and feeds cancer cells. 

Sugar also damages our pancreas, so the more sugar you have in your diet, the more chance you have of developing diabetes. 

Replace sugar with the herb stevia. Two great products are Natvia: and Sugarless Organic Stevia, which you can find in the sugar section of Woolworths.

We need to also remove toxic gluten from our diet. Gluten damages the neurotransmitters in our brains, and interferes with our brain's ability to create the feel good chemical serotonin, which we really need to help make us feel happy, and able to cope with our daily challenges. 

Gluten also makes us fat, very tired, unmotivated, mentally unbalanced and creates inflammation throughout our entire body. Replace gluten with organic brown rice.

Carrageenan Side Effects Not So Safe And Natural


Did you know…consuming this “natural” food additive can have fatal consequences?

Although it’s usually listed as a “natural” ingredient on food labels, a common food additive called carrageenan, 
a highly processed derivative of red seaweed) is anything but healthful.

Unfortunately, in 2012, the FDA rejected a petition protect public health by banning the use of carrageenan. Dr. Joanne Tobacman, a physician-researcher at the University of Illinois-Chicago College of Medicine, filed the petition because she is convinced carrageenan side effects are hazardous to human health.

Why is Carrageenan Added and Why is It Dangerous?

Carrageenan is used as a texturizer for a wide range of foods and beverages. Dr. Tobacman, author of 18 peer-reviewed studies on the biological effects of carrageenan, has shown ingesting foods containing carrageenan can cause inflammation.

In fact, drug developers used to administer carrageenan to cause tissue inflammation when testing the anti-inflammatory properties of new products.

Dr. Andrew Weil has cautioned against the consumption of carrageenan for over a decade. “All forms of carrageenan side effects are capable of causing inflammation. This is bad news, writes Dr. Weil. He goes on to explain inflammation is “a root cause” of a number of serious illnesses, such as…

• Heart disease
• Gastrointestinal disorders
• Alzheimer’s disease
• Parkinson’s disease
• Diabetes
• Cancer

“All told, I recommend avoiding…foods containing carrageenan,” concludes Weil.

FDA Picks Profits Over Public Health

Though available research indicates carrageenan side effects can cause a host of problems, the FDA refuses to impose limitations on its use. Charlotte Vallaeys, director of Farm and Food Policy for non-profit food policy research group Cornucopia, believes the evaluation conducted by the FDA was “sloppy and incomplete.”

Vallaeys says the FDA denial of Tobacman’s petition to ban carrageenan was “riddled with overt bias which appears to protect an industry’s profits at the expense of public health.”

The FDA’s decision is even more inexplicable considering this fact:

FACT: Tobacman discovered that the FDA has had sufficient evidence from animal studies to limit the use of carrageenan in foods since 1972. In the rejection to the petition, the FDA claimed the studies, some carried out with funding from the National Institutes of Health, were “disputed.”

The so-called “dispute” comes from Duika Burges Watson, a geography professor at Durham University in the United Kingdom, Watson has no medical background.

As Vallaeys wisely points out: “It is unclear why the FDA would place higher value on the opinion of a social scientist from the UK than on the medical studies founded by the National Institutes of Health.”

Carrageenan Side Effects: As “Safe” As Intestinal Poison Ivy

Though it’s still legal to use carrageenan, increasing consumer awareness about its negative impact on the human body has put food and beverage companies on edge.

However, these companies are reluctant to relinquish a useful additive like carrageenan—so instead they are spreading misinformation. Many of the claims are centered on the idea that because carrageenan is natural, it must be safe.

“Natural does not mean safe,” says Vallaeys. “Poison ivy is natural, but you wouldn’t put it in skin lotion…carrageenan side effects appear to do to your gut what poison ivy does to your skin.”

Cornucopia is calling for the FDA to reevaluate the petition to ban carrageenan. Until then, it’s up to shoppers to search from carrageenan-free products. A guide to truly safe, all-natural brands can be found on Cornucopia’s website.

Concerned consumers can also contact their local lawmakers and the FDA to voice their opinions.

And finally, we must remember that dollars are often even more powerful than votes. If consumers stop buying products that contain “natural” carrageenan, food manufacturers will be forced to listen.
