12 Food Additives You Shouldn’t Be Eating

Environmental Working Group today published a new Dirty Dozen Guide to Food Additives designed to help people figure out which additives to avoid and why. The release comes after the successful launch of EWG’s major new food-scoring database, which Adweek said, “sets a new bar.”

The guide covers food additives associated with serious health concerns, ingredients banned or restricted in other countries, and other substances that shouldn’t be in food. It turns the spotlight on some of the worst failures of the federal Food and Drug Administration’s regulatory process for additives and underscores the need for better oversight of our food system.

EWG also highlights two types of additives to watch, since scientists have not determined whether they are linked to human health problems.
