Sodium Benzoate: Sodium benzoate is the sodium salt of benzoic acid. It is one of the most used preservatives in processed foods and drinks to prevent spoilage.
Nitrites: Nitrites are preservatives added to processed meats. They're not bad in and of themselves, but they do turn into harmful chemicals called nitrosamines.
Partially Hydrogenated Oil: This nemesis of heart health is the primary source of trans fat.
Potassium Bromate: Wonder bread may not be so wonderful. Potassium bromate—an additive used in breads and rolls to increase their volume and produce a fine crumb structure—has been banned by every other industrialized country other than the U.S. and Japan.
Monosodium Glutamate: Better known as MSG, this is a common food additive used to intensify and enhance the flavor of savory dishes.
Sulfur Dioxide: The Food and Drug Administration has prohibited the use of sulfur dioxide on raw fruit and vegetables as they can be toxic.
BHA and BHT: Better known as Butylated Hydroxyanisole or BHA and Butylated Hydroxytoluene or BHT are antioxidants added to many processed foods.
Food Colorings: Although some foods are colored with natural substances like beta-carotene and carmine, some 17.8 million pounds of food dyes, many of which are petroleum-derived, are consumed in America.
Gaur Gum: Guar gum is a long-chain carbohydrate used to thicken and bind foods.
Propyl Paraben: With a federal study showing that 91 percent of Americans had propyl paraben in their urine, this is one of the more common preservatives.
High-Fructose Corn Syrup: High-fructose corn syrup or HFCS is a sweetener made from corn.
Sodium Sulfite: This chemical is usually found in wine and dried fruit. According to FDA, as many as one in 100 people is sensitive to sulfites in food.
