Food Additives

Preservatives, Antioxidants and Flavour Enhancers

As someone who has ALWAYS has skin irritations, asthma and eczema, when you are told to try to maintain a healthy diet, limiting the amounts of food additives, preservatives and flavour enhancers in your food.
Do you know how seriously hard it is?

There is so much STUFF added to our food, that we (and our children) consume a veritable cocktail of chemicals every single day.

For some of us the result this cocktail can be migraines, behavioural shifts, asthma, skin irritations... and the list goes on.

I have turned into what I call a 'shopping Nazi', checking the labelling on every product that goes into my trolley, and driving my toddler mad with how long we now spend in the supermarket.

  • Colours
  • Preservatives
  • Antioxidants
  • Flavour Enhancers
