– Bleached flour: It has been proven that alloxan is a by-product used in the bleaching flour, a process that makes the clean white flour. In reality this by-product is not added to the flour, but it is formed following the chemical processing of the grains. On the other hand, alloxan is a product obtained through the oxidation of uric acid by nitric acid. The betas alloxane destroys cells in the pancreas. Moreover, it is widely used in scientific experiments, especially to cause diabetes in laboratory animals.
– Ammonium sulfate is a crystalline salt which is often used as fertilizer to acidify alkaline soils. Therefore, it was one of the main sources of lawn fertilizer until the price begins to rise in 2004, reducing its availability.
– High fructose corn syrup contains excessive amounts of contaminants such as mercury, which are not measured or regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
