international flights in crappy airports! trust me, it happens.
Say wha?? That's NASTY!
Wow, I did not know about this, just looked it up.. you are spot on.
"castoreum as a food additive is considered by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be generally recognized as safe, often referenced simply as a "natural flavoring" in products' lists of ingredients."
How messed up is it that beaver gland oil can be simply listed as "Natural Flavor" under an ingredient list?! Seriously... what's wrong with this world. :[
See Nutritional Information.. Has "Natural Flavor" as an ingredient. Ridiculous!
Because juice from nature's own ripe and delicious fruits just doesn't taste good without the flavor enhancement of beaver anal gland oil, right?!
Thanks for sharing this by the way! It's amazing learning about little things like this and how secretive the "ingredient lists" can truly be..
Odwalla is flash pasteurized, meaning it isn't even raw...
Good when I'm in a pinch and none of my fruit is ripe. Gotta carb up!
No bottled juices ever unless you like drinking formaldehyde.
#1) One applies to all canned and bottled fruit and fruit juices: the processing and storing of the fruit releases methyl alcohol that is essentially as harmful as drinking aspartame or loading the body with formaldehyde, see this short 15 min. interview: Dr. Mercola Interviews Dr. Woody Monte
Real emergencies where you have no dates available, no fruit whatsoever, no frozen fruit, no fresh smoothies or fresh juices and you have a real problem with any cooked anything like sweet potatoes then I could see drinking pasteurized fruit juice.
#2) Odwalla, Naked, Smucker (Santa Cruz) and Campbell Soup (Bolthouse) all contributed money to STOP the labeling of GMOs in the recent California food labeling initiative. That means they want to be able to or already are using GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) in their products. Stay far away imo.
*Also aspartame is no longer required to be listed on ingredients in organic products:
I only drink juice naked, is there another way?
