I am a full advocate of labeling ALL ingredients in food. I have written previously about the danger's of GMO's in our food supply, but this takes things to a whole new level and I'm pissed! You all may ask why I'm so mad when I don't even eat or drink regular DAIRY products? As some of you know I use raw dairy from a local Florida farm only. Why? Because I know others do! My clients drink milk, my friends love cheese, and they serve it in EVERY school in America! I care about the health and welfare of my fellow citizens, family, and friends!
So why the hell do they want to add aspartame to milk? Well if you want to understand a little more of their twisted phylosophy Dr. Mercola explains it in his article "Big Dairy Petitions FDA to Allow Unlabeled Use of Aspartame in Dairy Products "
The IDFA and NMPF actually maintain that “consumers can more easily identify the overall nutritional value of milk products that are flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners if the labels do not include such claims.”
Artificial sweeteners are allowed to be added, but must currently be listed on the label. Quoting Section 130.10 of the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990, the IDFA and NMPF claim no extra labeling is required for artificial sweeteners because sugar is added to milk without labeling it, and “the modified food is not inferior in performance,” and “reduced calories are not attractive to children.”
HOW CAN YOU HELP? TAKE ACTION NOW!! Sumbit a comment on the proposed rule and let government know it's NOT ok!
