Could you be eating 5kg of food additives a year?

July 18, 2012

Apple with nutritiion factsDid you know it has been estimated that every year Australian’s consume at least 5kg of food additives each? Now this wouldn’t bother us so much if all of the additives in our food were 100% safe with no questions.  What we are disappointed about is while our food regulatory body permits approximately 300 additives in our food, there is evidence that at least 60 of these additives are questionable in terms of safety and some are even BANNED in many European countries.

This is among the many mind boggling things you’ll discover at the Additive Alert Community Talks based on Julie Eady’s best selling book Additive Alert.

Additive Alert Pty Ltd was founded by Julie Eady in 2004 to promote better consumer awareness of food additives and their effects on health, and to advocate for better labeling of Australian foods.  Since then Additive Alert has delivered over 200 information sessions to educational, community and corporate groups locally and interstate.  As demand for the workshops has grown steadily, Additive Alert have  a team of trained, passionate presenters available to deliver the workshops and information sessions within the community.

Every year, Julie receives letters and emails from consumers all over the country detailing how food additives are having a serious impact on the health and wellbeing of their families.  These letters often detail startling improvements to health and behavioural issues and confirm just how important it is that Australian consumers, especially parents, find out the facts about which food additives can cause harm.

If you’d like to find out which additives to avoid and why, contact us today to book in the very low cost Additive Alert Community Talk for Childcare, Community Groups and schools.
