Why we don’t use additives in our pies. The debate to use preservatives and additives, has been a concern for the our pies and for customers. This is why we make them natural with honest ingredients.
We really don’t like to add additives simply for the fact, why do we need them?
On the FDA website, they have a great article about Food Additives which is really another word for Preservatives. Some food and color additives have induced allergic reactions, while others have been linked to cancer, asthma, and birth defects.
The FDA requires that all ingredients be listed on a food’s label, but additives are often listed without specificity, as “spices” or “flavorings,” making it impossible for consumers to determine what, exactly, they are eating.
There are numerous additives that must be listed explicitly on packaging because they can cause health problems. These include sulfites, for example, which are used to prevent discoloration. The FDA estimates that sulfites cause allergic reactions in one percent of the general population, and five percent of people who suffer from asthma.
What about MSG?
MSG can cause headaches, nausea, weakness, difficulty breathing, drowsiness, rapid heartbeat, and chest pain, must be identified on food labels because of its potential for harm. However, it is important to know that some ingredients are actually MSG in disguise. The terms “natural flavor” and “hydrolyzed yeast extract” are often forms of MSG.
After years of use, a flavoring called Safrole that was used in root beer, as well as the common preservative BHA, were both found to cause cancer.
