Food As a Weapon! Here’s What Certain Emulsifiers Do To Your Body!

The more and more versatile offer of nutritious products is grounded precisely on the application of additives: without sweeteners and emulsifiers, there wouldn’t be any light” products, processed cheese couldn’t be made without emulsifier salt and the half-prepared or already prepared meals couldn’t be made without preservatives, antioxidants, stabilizers and other additions.

The emulsifiers are an integral part of food production, so they can still be found in many products. They are used to make the product look more attractive and taste better. Emulsifiers can be mostly found in candies, snacks, sparkling drinks and preserved products.

Colors make the products more attractive for the human eye. The things that improve the taste in case there are less natural ingredients in the product – they make it tastier. Preservatives give longer product durability. Artificial sugars are used on diet food and drinks.
