In a new study published in the journal Nature, researchers from Georgia State University investigated how the widely used processed food additive emulsifiers may be altering your gut microbiota composition and driving metabolic changes that lead to inflammatory conditions and obesity.
Which food items usually contain emulsifiers and what are they?
If you start opening your cupboards and checking the ingredients list for the food products in your house, you’d be surprised how often these food emulsifiers are included! They are in many processed food which include anything from bread, salad dressing, mayonnaise, chocolate, ice cream, margarine to peanut butter and more!
Some examples of these emulsifiers are soy lecithin, lecithin, monoglycerides, diglycerides, polysorbates, sorbitan monostearate, etc.
Well why then are they so widely used?
These food additives are widely used in processed food as they help extend shelf life, allow smooth mixing of ingredients, prevent separation, improve mouthfeel, etc. Basically, they help make the products more “marketable” to you, the consumers.
But at what cost?
What if these food additives actually harm you and your loved ones. Sure they do make the food more presentable, easier to mix, but at what cost?
Do Immunocal and Immunocal Platinum contain emulsifiers?
In short, no.
In fact, we have had people coming back to us telling us that it’s hard to dissolve and doesn’t mix properly.
Yes by adding a bit of emulsifier, we CAN make Immunocal much easier to mix and dissolve.
However, we do not make compromises when it comes to your health & wellbeing. Immunocal and Immunocal Platinum do not contain any additives or preservatives. They are formulated to be as PURE as possible to maximise efficacy for you!
There are more convenient choices out there, but would you be getting the result you want from it? Are they formulated to be ‘marketable’ or to actually get you the results you want?
