There is a good chance you have never heard of Azodicarbonamide unless you are a chemist but that doesn't mean that it is not all around you or even in your lunch.
Azodicarbonamide is a yellow, orange or red crystalline powder chemical compound that is used in the production of foam plastics. You can find azodicarbonamide in synthetic leathers, shoe soles and yoga mats among various other products. But guess what azodicarbonamide is also used in the production of food and has been given a “GRAS” rating in the United States and Canada. “GRAS” means safe and this means that under the name E927 azodicarbonamide is finding its way into some of the most popular foods in our society. It should be known that Europe and Australia have banned the use of E927 in food but here in North America we are still giving it a pass. The U.K. has identified azodicabonamide as aggravating to the respiratory tract and the World Health Organization has also found links to respiratory issues including allergies and asthma.
So I understand that we have an innocent until proven guilty policy, but when it comes to our health as human beings I believe that we may need to rethink this and one must wonder if big dollars aren't at stake here.
So where will you find the old running shoe in your food? E927 is a flour bleaching and improving agent that makes bread nice and chewy and found commonly in Subway sandwiches, McDonald’s buns, Burger King Buns, Wendy’s buns, Arby’s buns and Dunkin Donuts to name a few. There are definitely many other reasons you should refrain from fast food, but consider this food for thought next time the kids are in the back seat munching on flip-flops!
