The chemicals in the above list are engineered to preserve, bulk, flavor, etc. our foods. Many of these items come from other industries where they are considered a hazard.

Here is one example of a GRAS substance that is used in many supplements,

calcium carbonate.

On The Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances calcium carbonate is listed as a hazard and states that it is used for plastics, coatings, rubber, pesticides, paper, cleaners, and sealants.

I encourage you to do your own Internet research and “just say no” to chemicals – feed your body whole raw foods.

 

 

Prior to the adoption of the Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) - generally any non-food was against the law.

Now the government recognizes more than 3000 total substances that may be added to food to preserve, enhance, flavor or texture packaged foods. Many of these GRAS listed items are listed as hazards else ware in the Governments databases. Not one of these substances when used as additives are native to the structure of food as nature provided. So... if your body does not recognize these substances as nutrition it may produce mucus to defend your body from invasion, just as it does to protect from spoiled food or any other toxin. That is why I suggest avoiding these additives. 


EAFUS: A Food Additive Database

This is an informational database maintained by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) under an ongoing program known as the Priority-based Assessment of Food Additives (PAFA). It contains administrative, chemical and toxicological information on over 2000 substances directly added to food, including substances regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as direct, "secondary" direct, and color additives, and Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) and prior-sanctioned substances. In addition, the database contains only administrative and chemical information on less than 1000 such substances. The more than 3000 total substances together comprise an inventory often referred to as "Everything" Added to Food in the United States (EAFUS).

This list of substances contains ingredients added directly to food that FDA has either approved as food additives or listed or affirmed as GRAS. Nevertheless, it contains only a partial list of all food ingredients that may in fact be lawfully added to food, because under federal law some ingredients may be added to food under a GRAS determination made independently from the FDA. The list contains many, but not all, of the substances subject to independent GRAS determinations. For information about the GRAS notification program please consult the Inventory of GRAS Notifications.

Read some of the pre-gras law Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906
