Aspartame in Milk Without a Label? Big Dairy Petitions FDA For Approval

Posted February 24, 2013

Two powerful dairy organizations, The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF), are petitioning the Food and Drug Administration to allow aspartame and other artificial sweeteners to be added to milk and other dairy products without a label.

The FDA currently allows the dairy industry to use “nutritive sweeteners” including sugar and high fructose corn syrup in many of their products. Nutritive sweeteners are defined as sweeteners with calories.

According to the FDA notice issued this week:

IDFA and NMPF state that the proposed amendments would promote more healthful eating practices and reduce childhood obesity by providing for lower-calorie flavored milk products. They state that lower-calorie flavored milk would particularly benefit school children who, according to IDFA and NMPF, are more inclined to drink flavored milk than unflavored milk at school.

Knock Out Pasteurized Milk! Make Healthy Nut Milk Yourself.

Kick Pasteurized Milk To The Curb And Make Your Own Healthy Nut Milk
February 28, 2013. Karen Foster, Prevent Disease, Waking Times

Avoid nasty ingredients: emulsifiers, starches, artificial flavors, Aspartame ^reg;... Make your own nut milk. See more at: http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/02/28/kick-pasteurized-milk-...

Make Nut Milk:

  • Organic nuts or seeds. A general rule is a ratio of at least 2:1. Two parts water to 1 part nuts or seeds.
  • Half-gallon mason jar or glass pitcher. Use this for soaking the nuts and storing your final product.
  • Blender of food processor. You don’t need a high-speed blender or anything fancy to make nut milk.
  • Nut milk bag, cheesecloth or fine-meshed sieve (optional). Use if you like your milk smooth instead of pulpy.
    SOAK nuts, seeds, or grains

Rumsfeld's got himself a new cash cow.

Rumsfeld's Disease
A Politically-Induced Biochemical
Disaster Of Global Proportions
By Don Harkins
The Idaho Observer

Today, Donald Rumsfeld is known throughout the world as the zealous U.S. Secretary of Defense who is waging a global "war on terror" in search of "terrorists" and "weapons of mass destruction." Most people, however, are not aware that Rumsfeld himself unleashed a chemical weapon of mass destruction upon the world in 1981-and it,s still out there destroying people all over the world. That "WMD" is aspartame and it has been scientifically and anecdotally linked to millions of chronic illnesses and deaths.

i made

a youtube video about this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgFds-Ru3fk

Albert Camus — 'The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.'

aspartame already in ice cream unlabeled?

I was checking the source document at the Federal Register link, that's what I think it is saying? If so, I'm not eating ice cream anymore, what a crock of sh*t

and further details for the ice cream specifically now,

I comprehend from analyzing the Federal Register page that aspartame is presently permitted to be used in ice cream (unlike for milk presently), and that it does not to be need to be indicated anywhere except that it has to be on the ingredients list

in analyzing the Federal Register page for this in more detail

for the milk part of it specifically, it seems to me that they want to not have to indicate if they put aspartame in milk on the product's main description/ label, but that they WILL still put it in the ingredients list

more:

Therefore, while the milk standard of identity in § 131.110 only provides for the use of “nutritive sweetener” in an optional characterizing flavor, milk may contain a characterizing flavor that is sweetened with a non-nutritive sweetener if the food's label bears a nutrient content claim (e.g., “reduced calorie”) and the non-nutritive sweetener is used to add sweetness to the product so that it is not inferior in its sweetness property compared to its standardized counterpart.

Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World

Good film on this

Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World
http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/sweet-misery-a-poisoned-world/

Aspartame is an artificial sweetener, an additive. And it’s a chemical. It’s not a natural product, it’s a chemical. The molecule is made up of three components. Two are amino acids, the so-called building blocks of protein.

One is called Phenylalanine, which is about 50% of the molecule and the other is Aspartic Acid, which is like 40%. And the other 10% is so-called Methyl Ester, which as soon as it’s swallowed becomes free methyl alcohol. Methanol. Wood alcohol, which is a poison. A real poison.

Excellent documentary showing how dangerous artificial sweetner Aspartame is. From its history, to its effects this video is enough to shock anyone into really looking at the food labels next time they shop. Aspartame is a toxic food that came into the world as an investment by Donald Rumsfeld, while ignoring the deadly effects the tests showed. Take a good look at this video, it could save lives.

I get migraines when I drink

I get migraines when I drink anything with aspartame in it. I don't give diet drinks to my daughter for the same reason.

Funny because

the people that I know who do drink diet coke get headaches when they don't drink it.

Amazing, isn't it?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

The final straw

It's time all states allow for raw milk, and stop this garbage with modifying perfectly good food.

What perfect timing

This coupled with this week's Texas Straight Talk from Dr. Paul ought to help open eyes.

"Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." -- Thomas Paine

I also find it bizarro world that chewing gum (non sugar free)

"old timey sugar kinds", are now pumped full of weirded out chemicals in place of or in addition to "old timey sugar". Just read the labels. It makes no sense and seems another case of "non-informed consumer non-consent" because most folks would never guess the old timey stuff that does not say "sugar free" on the label would contain these chemicals anyway.

Dr Roberts, the doctor that wrote books against Aspartame passed

Passed away a few days ago. Just post link above a few minutes ago.

Aspartame is extremely unhealthy. Even in minute amounts. Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of War serving under 'Bush the W' rushed to judgment before the FDA to bless Aspartame as "approved"... Fast tracked.

I have not had an occasion to send you a letter in quite some time. Hope my note finds you well. Regards,

Been meaning to ask you about one of your quotes...

What exactly did you mean by "While the rest of the species is descended from apes, redheads are descended from cats"? I resemble that remark. :)

I too am a red-headed cub.

Most pretend not to see me as I am. Photographs of me are not as colorful as real life. The quote you cite reflects my personal bias toward the beauty of red hair. Look to oil portraits & sketches of me to see how colorful I am.

Sepia (brown ink extracted from cuttlefish) was used in developing camera film. That is why most old films, before black & white were brown.

This is not happenning in any other country in the world.

It almost seems someone has an agenda to make Americans very sick. Add to that the insanity of SWAT teams attacking organic farmers and raw milk producers and you have to wonder...who are these insane people and what are they trying to do?

Get simple. You can live on raw vegetables, fruits, berries, nuts, eggs, grass fed meat, and filtered water. You do not need fruit drinks and milk.

By the way almond milk does not taste bad in coffee and is rich in calcium and minerals. Just try to find an uncontaminated source

Aspartame was first developed

Aspartame was first developed as Antkiller (and it works amazingly well; just try it), but the makers decided that since it had an intensely concentrated sweetness, it could be used in very small quantities as a general sweetener. It seems that the small amount necessary to sweeten, for example, Diet Coke, not only made it economical, it made the poison factor irrelevant. This is what I was told. I was also told that it was Searle who developed the product, and when it had difficulty translating itself into a general sweetner and getting FDA approval, the owner of Searle appealed directly to Ronald Reagan, who helped. Does anyone know if this is true?

Aspartame / Ant Poison

One of the metabolites of aspartame is formic acid which is a poison used by ants to kill their prey. But not all of the formaldehyde obtained from the metabolism of aspartame breaks down into formic acids. Some of the formaldehyde combines with DNA to form "adducts" and is stored throughout the body. As far as I know, cigarettes and aspartame are the only products shown in independent research to lead to formaldehyde adduct accumulation.

There are a lot of good reasons to avoid processed milk in my opinion. This poison being in milk will be another good reason to stick to raw milk or no milk.

Aspartame was developed as part of the process of developing an ulcer drug --or at least that's what the company tells us. By the way, Donald Rumsfeld was one of the keys to get this poison approved over the objections of FDA scientists.

Donald Rumsfeld got Aspartame Fast Tracked Through FDA hurdles.

just an fyi

whether they are right or wrong in this matter is irrelevant in the larger picture.
