I am stunned that there are some food additives that may cause weight gain. We all know about calories, fat and carbs now we have to know about food additives too!! I mean you think you know something. To me food additives are pesky chemicals the food industry insist on putting in our food. I get it. The population demands convenience and unfortunately that means preservatives, colours and flavours for food to taste, smell and look the way we want it to. Of course I could ramble on about all those chemical for hours! I really looked into it properly a few years ago someone suggested one of my stepson’s might have a food allergy because of his ALWAYS snotty nose!
