Beckoned to Duty!Submitted by The Pen on Fri, 04/12/2013 - 22:33
I have spent the last three days immersed in comment (argument) at the petition submitted by the Intl Dairy Foods Association and the National Milk Producers Federation in support and in order to have non-nutritive sweeteners put into 17 separate milk products without a nutrient content claim. They are seeking to amend the standardized food ingredients in milk by petioning to add non-nutritive sweeteners (Aspartame, Sucralose) to these 17 products without a nutrient content claim, i.e. "reduced calorie" in hopes it will not confuse and be unattractive to children/consumers. I am sick to stomach that these citizens = person(s) can file a joint petition and say that adding non-nutritive sweeteners/artificial sweeteners to 17 milk products without claim is in the best interests of children and [DUMB] consumers.
I have written almost four pages of comments to the FDA and haven't even fully answered question 1 of 6. I am being compelled to argue and fight back with words...is anyone else feeling the pull.
Peace and Love always.
