FDA: Remove Carrageenan From Our Food

FDA: Remove Carrageenan From Our Food

SPREAD THE WORD!

About the Petition

Carrageenan, a popular food additive, is found in a variety of foods, including some labeled “natural” and “organic”. The toxin is most commonly used in dairy products like whipped cream, ice cream, nonfat sour cream, soymilk, coconut milk and even infant formula.

A team of scientists at the University of Illinois at Chicago Medial School published scientific studies on the harmful health effects of Carrageenan on human cells. Funded by the National Institutes of Health and led by Dr. Tobacman, they found the additive can cause colitis-disease, diabetes, gastrointestinal inflammation and even colon cancer.

Companies like Organic Valley, Eden Foods and Stonyfield have removed or are in the process of removing carrageenan from their products. Stand with the Cornucopia Institute and tell the FDA to remove carrageenan from food.
