Have you heard of senomyx? What do you think of their "artificial flavor" to enhance food, cut sugar and salt?

Please search and see what it is made from.

  • It is the name of a company, not the name of a product. They are contracted with many major names like Kraft, Cambells, Coca Cola, Cadbury, Nestles etc. The produce a chemical that works with taste receptors to enhance flavors such as salt so sodium can be reduced. You will be seeing this in nearly all foods in the near future. Because of a FDA loophole companies will not be required to list it in the ingredients. My niece is a biochemist and has been following this.

  • So it is another chemical that they are putting in our food. Great. I'm starting to feel like a lab rat.

  • OP: It is a chemical, derived from aborted fetal tissue. No joke. Added to packaged food to reduce sugar, salt and other "bad" ingredients.
    Please do the research yourself, I cannot grasp that they are doing this. But it is happening.
