by Organic Condiments on June 22, 2021

In today’s time, it is impossible to stay away from common food additives because of the extensive use of chemicals. However, all additives come with an upper limit for safer human health.

With the advancement in technology and increasing materialism among people, many common food additives and adulterants are added by sellers to earn huge profits and fool people in the name of health. Due to this approach, slowly and gradually we all are suffering from it and developing many chronic disorders in our healthy growing body.

Now you must be thinking that if they are harmful then why we tend to purchase them? Are they not visible to naked eyes that make so that we can avoid purchasing them?

The question is right. If we criticize the adulterated food and are harmful to our health, and still if purchase them on a daily basis. The reason is, these common food additives or adulterants are also known as silent killers because they look similar to the original food product and thus, we can't identify them without proper laboratory testing. It is a very grief-stricken situation condition existing around the globe, that in between the fight of manufacturer and seller to earn benefits, the common man is suffering everywhere with innumerable diseases.

The question that arises now is what are those common food additives that make it unhealthy to consume?

There are many food additives against which the various laws are made. The list includes bisphenols, phthalates, perfluoroalkyl chemicals, percolate, and many more. All these additives interfere with the immune system and regular functioning of the human digestive system that immediately leads to poor functioning of the rest of the body. They even interfere with thyroid functioning and create an imbalance in brain development. This disorder can be seen in young growing children. Phthalates also interfere with male genital development and increase the risk of obesity or cardiovascular diseases.

 Many artificial food colours are also used whose symptoms can relatively be found in children. The artificial colours create hyperactivity disorders in children and interfere in their growth. 

Sometimes these chemicals in the forms of pesticides, insecticides or fertilizers, are added during the cultivation of crops for their early maturation, thereby creating ill effects afterward.

The common food additives are also used in the selling unit to increase the amount of profit. The quantity of spices is replaced with brick powder, artificial yellow food colour, papaya seeds, stones, and many others. They can hamper the flavour and taste of food which is not a major concern when compared to the diseases and ill effects that are slowly created in human body.

So how can we minimize the use of such harmful common food additives and how we can check them in a particular raw food product?

Firstly, make yourself aware regarding different additives that might present in the food item. Fewer natural additives are good for health, so identify the best quality properly. While purchasing always refer to the ingredients list and various instructions already mentioned regarding the allergic reactions as some ingredients harmful to health. You should be more cautious about the canned products as they come under the perishable item and once expired can't be used afterward and if special care is not taken then it might cause severe diseases. But in case you are purchasing a loose item then always check for its quality through common tests that we can easily carry out at home. 

Also switching to organic products can help you a lot in eradicating this problem of the addition of adulterants or chemicals. Organic products are specially grown using new and eco-friendly techniques that allow you to remain healthy. They are free from harmful chemicals thereby acting as your perfect companion.

Thus, we can put the lid on the topic by saying, that always monitor your food product before consuming. This can prevent you from developing various diseases and can maintain your health easily by finding about common food additives at home. Also shifting towards organic can alter these problems. So be green, be healthy!!
