Additives/Preservatives

The most common additives and preservatives(E-Numbers) found in (food) products worldwide

E-numbers are substances that are added to improve food properties. Examples are dyes, flavour enhancers and preservatives. E numbers can be extracted from nature or artificially created in a factory.
If E-numbers are used in a product, then the name of the substance or the E-number is on the label.

A substance does not just get an E-number, this is preceded by a whole process. The most important thing is that the substance should not be harmful to health. The E-number is, therefore, a guarantee that they can be used safely.

Perhaps this is true with very low consumption, but what if someone is sensitive in nature? Or what happens if someone consumes a lot of products and thus exceeds the maximum standards?
What do E-substances do when they are combined? Probably not much good.

People with, for example, ‘phenylketonuria’ (PKU) or a sulphite hypersensitivity should avoid certain
E-numbers. Furthermore, excessive use of polyols can have a laxative effect.

I really appreciate you going over everything with a fine tooth comb

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! I have suffered from asthma all my life and just recently my orthodontist talk to me about mouth breathing, taping my mouth shut and not eating gluten. I didn’t mind the part about taping my mouth, but I thought the gluten was just a fad – boy was I wrong! I stopped eating gluten and within six weeks my asthma was completely gone. I don’t eat a lot of chocolate, though I do eat a lot of cabbage and broccoli which I will now stay away from. I was also using soy milk, but it wasn’t causing the extreme reaction that the gluten was apparently – but I will avoid those as well.

I really appreciate you going over everything with a fine tooth comb as this explains and confirms quite a lot!

Thank you so much,


Wisteria

Definitely it was a good decision

Hello Adriaan,
Thanks for the results and the upgrade, definitely it was a good decision to make this test.
I will recommend it to my colleagues.
best regards


Yanira

The information in the books are extremely beneficial

Thank you very much for sending these results again and for the additional results. I do appreciate your support and service very much. Thank you. I also found the information in the books extremely beneficial, I am hoping to keep these changes with my health by following your suggestions. Thank you again.

Kind regards

 


Julie

I appreciate the extra effort

Thank you so much Adriaan for getting this report out to me. I appreciate the extra effort and extra sweetener tests. I have been dizzy for about 1 1/2 years. I am hoping that abstaining from the things I am allergic to will help me get well. I will be referring several people to you. Thanks once again.

 


Jo Ann Fidler

I will be referring my friends and family

Thank you Adriaan, This has been very helpful information and I will be referring my friends and family to you!!

I want you to know that I am completely blown away by my results

I want you to know that I am completely blown away by my results. I was a little skeptical going into this but I am now a true believer. I have been having severe reactions to foods for the past few months. IgE testing was not very helpful. Almost all of the items on the list are things I know have caused issues for me. It is great to have confirmation of what my body has been telling me. Thank you so much for what you do! I think my sister is ordering a test right now.

You guys are literally adding years to our lives

Hello Adriaan,
 I recently did a small sample elimination diet and found that corn – 71% is causing me significant back pain when it was re-introduced back into my diet. I’m normally more sensitive to things physically than other people. My wife and I did the test with you guys and see this information as very beneficial to our diet and lives. I’m so thankful for what you guys have done for us, this is incredible!! You guys are literally adding years to our lives!

 


Mark and Paige S.

I had a food intolerance for lactose and dairy

Many years I’ve been struggling with eczema and feel like I’ve tried everything to get it under control. I had begun to think it’s something I would just have to accept and live with. From the test, I found out that I am intolerant to lactose and dairy products so decided to exclude them from my diet. This has been a revelation and my skin has been the best it has in years. I feel so much better about myself. It’s been a life changer.


Janet Barker — 52 years old from Illinois

My stomach problems have improved, no more reflux

I have suffered from stomach problems for the last 3 years including bloating, pain and reflux. My GP said it was IBS and give medication which never really made much difference. So I decided to take the premium food allergy test. My results came back within 48 hours and outlined exactly what I should avoid. This made making food choices for me so much easier, that I was able to exclude these things without any guesswork. My stomach issues have improved and my general health and energy levels are the best they have been in years, so happy.


John Wylie — 34 years old from San Diego

Bloated feelings are no longer an issue, this food allergy test works

I had a number of symptoms: constantly bloated, windy and constipation. I am so happy that they all gone now. I must say this is the best-spent money in my life ever! After I followed the free 30 days program that came with my food allergy test order, I do feel fit and energetic again. THANK YOU!
