BHA ingredient in foods??

Leave a comment

My daughter recently tried a new “spread” at her daycare and came home to tell me how yummy it was.  It was called “Imperial Cinnamon Spread” .

Check out this article http://dougcookrd.com/2012/05/grocery-store-navigation-imperial-cinnamon-spread/ .  This spread contains BHA which is a chemical additive used in foods (and many cosmetics) to prevent the product from spoiling.  BHA has already been banned in many Europen countries and is slated for further assessment in Canada and the US.  

As this article recommends … use real butter, a pinch of sugar and ground cinnamon; stick with real food 🙂
