Carrageenan: Safe for Consumption?

What is Carrageenan?

The conversation around food additives, such as carrageenan, is something we need to continue to revisit because food additives are hidden in everything! And even despite all the hype around diet and nutrition, lots of you are still unaware of the affects these very things can be having on your health. If you are not reading food labels, we strongly encourage you begin doing so. There is simply no doubt our food supply has been tainted so it is up to you to get more informed and become more aware of what you are putting in your body.

Today we are going to highlight Carrageenan. Why? Because it is SUPER annoying to try to find a coconut milk without it.

Don’t be mistaken, coconut milk is not the only product it can be found in. Carrageenan is lurking in lots of dairy products, alternative dairy products and even your babies food! We recommend checking out this list of products containing carrageenan.

This is not a new topic for us so to get more details and learn  more about the good, the bad and the ugly on carrageenan, CLICK HERE. Oops sorry…not a whole lot of good, it just sounded good:)

Information not shared, is just information. By sharing information, it becomes knowledge and when applied and experienced, it becomes wisdom. Our hope is for you to take this knowledge, apply it into your own life and experience the difference in your health as you begin to eliminate things the human body was not designed to consume or absorb.

What if carrageenan is contributing to your gut issues? Causing your lactose intolerance? How many foods are you eating that contain carrageenan?

Today’s YouTube is going to educate you on the role carrageenan plays in:

  1. Altered liver function and toxic overload (highly carcinogenic over time)
  2. Inflammation leading to colitis
  3. Inhibition of the immune system and thyroid function

 

All in all it is not a good healthy food additive. We hope you enjoy today’s Vlog. We will see you again very soon!

  1. Carrageenan causes me lots of issues, I can’t believe it is still allowed in organic products. Definitely have to read the labels! I agree, so annoying about finding a coconut milk without it. If they don’t have carrageenan, they have lots of different gums, which, for me, are no better. 🙁 Now I just make my own coconut milk when I want some! Thanks for the post.
