E280-283: Interesting readup on its effect

Livestrong , United States of America

The Livestrong Foundation (stylized as LIVESTRONG) , formerly known as the Lance Armstrong Foundation site talks about different effects of the additive:


Food products do not directly cause inflammation of the stomach lining, also called gastritis; however, your diet can greatly affect the ability of your stomach to heal the inflammation or make it worse. HealthAssist website keeps an extensive database of the side effects of many popular food additives. Calcium and sodium propionate have the potential to permanently damage your stomach lining by exacerbating gastritis and inducing severe ulcers


Food Intolerance Network, Australia


Ms Dengate, a food intolerance counsellor, began the study with paediatrician Dr Alan Ruben when food regulators ignored her reports about the effects of calcium propionate.

The controlled study started by putting children with behaviour problems on the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital elimination diet, which avoided 50 harmful additives as well as natural salicylates, amines and glutamates.

“The results in this phase of testing were remarkable,” said Dengate. “Behaviour ratings for irritability, restlessness, inattention and sleep disturbance dropped from the 95th percentile to the 31st percentile showing just how badly some kids are affected by a range of chemicals in our food.”

ANNE BARKER: As a small child, Sue Dengate’s daughter, Rebecca, developed a high level of intolerance to certain foods, foods with preservatives or colourants that made her child moody and sleepless or lose concentration.

SUE DENGATE: She was irritable from day one. She was a sleepless baby. When she was awake she needed constant attention. If she had my attention all the time, then she was fine.

ANNE BARKER: But it was preservative 282 or calcium propinate, a mould inhibitor in bread, that seemed to have the worst effect.

SUE DENGATE: We took 27 children who had to go on an elimination diet for three weeks. They all had problems with behaviour, not necessarily ADHD. They just had behaviour problems. And the elemination diet got them as good as they could be.

Then they had to eat four slices of bread every day for three days. One week they had one feed of bread. The next week they had the next lot. And nobody knew. I didn’t know, they didn’t know, which one had the preservative in it.

More than 50 percent of the children clearly reacted to the bread with preservative in it.

Quotes about McDonald Happy Meal:

(We had read about McDonald Buns not molding even after left for a long period of time. Below is the readup)

The real question in my mind is why don’t the buns mold? That’s the really scary part, since healthy bread begins to mold within days. What could possibly be in McDonald’s hamburger buns that would ward off microscopic life for more than two decades?

As it turns out, unless you’re a chemist you probably can’t even read the ingredients list out loud. Here’s what McDonald’s own website says you’ll find in their buns:

Enriched flour (bleached wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid, enzymes), water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, yeast, soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated soybean oil, contains 2% or less of the following: salt, calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, wheat gluten, ammonium sulfate, ammonium chloride, dough conditioners (sodium stearoyl lactylate, datem, ascorbic acid, azodicarbonamide, mono- and diglycerides, ethoxylated monoglycerides, monocalcium phosphate, enzymes, guar gum, calcium peroxide, soy flour), calcium propionate and sodium propionate (preservatives), soy lecithin.

Great stuff, huh? You gotta especially love the HFCS (diabetes, anyone?), partially-hydrogenated soybean oil (anybody want heart disease?) and the long list of chemicals such as ammonium sulfate and sodium proprionate. Yum. I’m drooling just thinking about it.

We used to readup and heard about problems of pregnancy, seizures problems, gut issues and behavioral problems in healthy chinchilla. Many people not being able to pinpoint issues for their chinchilla. Check out your chinchilla diet for them. Many unsafe additives like E282 Calcium propionate that are not recommended for human consumption is widely available in animal feeds. Keep at lookout for them.
