Artificial ingredients

Artificial ingredients

Intent: 

To help occupants avoid artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives in food.

BACKGROUND

Numerous artificial ingredients are typically added to highly processed foods to improve taste and extend shelf life. However, some people may be sensitive to these ingredients, such as sulfites, which can lead to breathing problems in individuals with asthma. Since these additives do not add nutritional value to a food, and tend to appear in foods with low nutritional qualities, they should be avoided as often as possible.
