Current opinion of artificial food additives

Since from many centuries, food additives are being used in several types of food. Our antecedents have used salt as preservative for food like meats, fish etc. Also, for increasing the flavor of food some of the herbs as well as spices have also been added into food. Now-a-days, there is a vital demand for the flavored, colorful, nutritious food by food consumers. This increase in demand became possible by food additives. Various ingredients are being used to prepare foods. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) contains over 3000 ingredients such as spices, salt, colors, vanilla, yeast, acrolein, alcohol, basil, bay leaves, bile salt, cacao, damiana leaves, elder flowers, formalin, garlic, gum karaya, hyssop, iodine, jasmine, kola nut, lactose, menthol, nutmeg, onion, peach leaves, quince seed, rose buds, rue, saccharin, starch, tamarind, vanilla, wood rosin, yeast, zedoary bark etc.
