The Haven Healing Centre Guide to Food
Additives and E Numbers, and their effects



The capital 'E' in front of the number means that additive has been passed for food use throughout the European Community. As a general rule, E numbers from E100 -199 are colourings, E200 - 299 are preservatives, E300 - 399 are acids, antioxidants and mineral salts, E400 - 599 are vegetable gums, emulsifiers, stabilisers and anti-caking agents, E600 and above are flavour enhancers, E900 - 1500 are miscellaneous. An E number does not always mean 'artificial' - for example, of the 46 permitted food colours, 21 are "natural" - that is they occur in nature and are extracted from vegetable and animal sources. Of course, the other 25 are "not natural". Many additives just replace a more expensive ingredient with a cheaper one.

Not all E Numbers are bad for you! But enough of them have been banned around the world for us to take note of what we take into our bodies as "food".
Because of the bad press given to E numbers over the last 20 years or so, food manufacturers have started to give the full chemical name rather than the E number. This is because, even if you CAN read it, you're much less likely to look it up. Just printing an E number encourages consumers to be curious. Printing the chemical name distracts us and steers our thoughts toward acceptance. We are much more likely to think something like, "It must be safe because they've printed it on the packet". I hate this kind of double-bluff!

What's wrong with eating chemical cocktails?
Think about dribbling sand into the oil filler funnel of a car engine over a long period of time, like an egg timer trickling from top to bottom. No matter how many times you wash the outside of the car or engine, sooner rather than later, that engine will sieze up and the car will stop working. Why do we imagine, that our bodies, which are millions of times more complicated and delicate than a car engine, should react any differently, when subjected to the chemicals and toxins that are around us in our homes and in our food?

Remember: You are what you eat!
Choose carefully.

As usual, the UK is about a mile behind the rest of the world with it's policy on food additives. Even known problem additives which are now banned in several other countries are freely used in the UK and in our shop bought children's foods. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) shrugs it's defiant shoulders and leaves it up to us to sort out for ourselves, preferring to wait for the results of yet more research. Don't bother! If you or your child has asthma, is hyperactive, behaves like a little monster, if you have arthritis or any allergic reactions, internal or external, check all the foods in your cupboard against this list. You may be surprised at what you discover.
