Food Additives – is there an escape?



Did you know Australians are eating chocolate biscuits that can’t be sold in Europe because most of our approved colourings and additives have been banned over there. What do they know that we don’t? And what if you really like chocolate but really don’t want to eat something someone else thinks is dangerous? Do you throw caution to the wind and continue munching away on a chemical cocktail…or for just a tiny bit of work, do you make your own colour and preservative-free chocolate delights?

Home made chocolate or chocolate alternatives are super easy – cocoa powder, copha and sugar aren’t that hard to mix together. Stir to taste, dip in what ever you fancy and place in the fridge to set. For even a more natural and less processed alternative, you can use carob powder instead of cocoa and pure coconut oil instead of copha. The natural carob powder and coconut oil will mix and set exactly like the traditional home-made chocolate version without any preservatives or colours. Add roasted, ground hazelnuts and you can have your own carob hazelnut sandwich spread. It really is just a minute or two of work and you might find your own product tastes even better than something off the supermarket shelf.

So the choice is out there. Health stores and most supermarkets will stock all the ingredients you will need and the internet is filled with recipes. If you want to avoid eating chemicals banned in other countries, you really don’t have to do a lot…and who knows – you might just enjoy it.
