Gold

Gold.Jpg

Gold is one of the most popular metals used in jewelry. It is also very useful in electronics. In addition to its more common uses, gold is used as a food additive – usually for decorative purposes in the form of gold leaf (E number E175). It is quite popular as an additive to alcoholic drinks and there is a traditional Polish and German liqueur called Goldwasser (Goldwater) which contains thousands of tiny flakes. Gold is inert to body chemistry so it passes through the body unaltered and has no nutritional value.

While I don't get the gold the bugs make sense-its a coloring thing *shrugs*  I do wish they could find better ingredients!

Not to pick on you, so please don't take it this way...


FOOD doesn't have ingredients.  Food products do.  That's why it's important to eat real food/clean food.

We have the choice; we're not forced to eat food products.
