Organic foods to be poisoned with Neotame

Disclaimer: The following story may be in error. We have received an email where we were told that Neotame is not allowed in US Organic Food.

Just when we thought that buying “Organic” was safe, we run headlong into the deliberate poisoning of our organic food supply by the FDA in collusion with none other than the folks who brought us Aspartame. NutraSweet, a former Monsanto asset, has developed a new and improved version of this neurotoxin called Neotame.

Neotame has similar structure to aspartame — except that, from it’s structure, appears to be even more toxic than aspartame. This potential increase in toxicity will make up for the fact that less will be used in diet drinks. Like aspartame, some of the concerns include gradual neurotoxic and immunotoxic damage from the combination of the formaldehyde metabolite (which is toxic at extremely low doses) and the excitotoxic amino acid.

But surely, this product would be labeled! NOT SO!!! For this little gem, no labeling required. And it is even included in USDA Certified Organic food.

The food labeling requirements required for aspartame have now been dropped for Neotame, and no one is clear why this was allowed to happen. Neotame has been ruled acceptable, and without being included on the list of ingredients, for:

* USDA Certified Organic food items.
* Certified Kosher products with the official letter K inside the circle on labels.

Let me make this perfectly clear. Neotame does not have to be included in ANY list of ingredients! So, if you buy processed food, whether USDA Certified Organic or not, that food most likely will contain Neotame because it is cost-effective, and since no one knows it is there, there is no public backlash similar to what is happening with Aspartame. A win/win situation!

But that’s not all. Just love chowing down on that delicious steak? Well, that cow most likely will have been fed with feed containing…..you guessed it…..Neotame! A product called “Sweetos,” which is actually composed of Neotame, is being substituted for molasses in animal feed.

“Sweetos is an economical substitute for molasses. Sweetos guarantees the masking of unpleasant tastes and odor and improves the palatability of feed. This product will be economical for farmers and manufacturers of cattle feed. It can also be used in mineral mixture,” said Craig Petray, CEO, The NutraSweet Company, a division of Searle, which is a part of Monsanto.

Why would we feed animals food that is so distasteful that we would have to mask the unpleasantness with an artificial sweetener? Most animals will not eat spoiled, rancid feed. They know by the smell that it is not good. Enter Sweetos (Neotame). Just cover up the unpleasant tastes and odors, and you can feed them anything you want to, courtesy of the oh, so considerate folks at Monsanto and company.

But of course, Monsanto is no longer associated with NutraSweet. In the time-honored tradition of covering its assets, Monsanto has a proven track record of spinning off controversial portions of its company that generate too much scrutiny, such as it did with the Solutia solution.

Says the Farm Industry News, “Monsanto, which has long resided in the crosshairs of public scorn and scrutiny, appears to have dodged at least one bullet by spinning off its industrial chemical business into a separate entity called Solutia a couple of years ago. Solutia has since been hammered by lawsuits regarding PCBs contamination from what were once called Monsanto chemical plants in Alabama and other states”.

So what is the solution to this problem? Buy local organic food, know your local farmer, and don’t buy processed foods whether they are labeled “Organic” or not. This requires a drastic change in lifestyle that most will not want to make. For those who choose to ride the wheel of chance by succumbing to this genocidal adulteration of our food supply by those who stand to profit from our sickness and early demise, it is your choice.

    It is important for consumers to know that neotame is not allowed for use in organic products. Neotame is not included on the National List(http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/text-idx?c=ecfr&sid=fbc697b0474ea6a90b9b31be05ddc029&rgn=div6&view=text&node=7:, and is therefore not permitted for use in organic production and processing.

    It is also worth noting that on January 6th, the National Organic Program issued the following statement affirming that neotame is not allowed for use in organic: “The National Organic Program has received inquiries concerning Internet claims that the artificial sweetener Neotame is allowed in organic foods.

    To clarify, it is NOT permitted in organic foods or foods labeled ‘made with organic [specified ingredient or food group],’ nor is it permitted in organic livestock feed.”

    This statement can be viewed at http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?llr=5eqfe4dab&v=001_7pdtf0NbxO25e035S1jMuaTv3ENwLDacWHgtR558y_ev1pDiCx4Y8WVrIE5d-OloAbxdf55bQv0sYAkd7JlYR_5nYh3fnNQx7fDUwFIklg%3D.

      I am ALL FOR transparency concerning the USDA and my food. I am very much against fear mongering. A quick search on the internet provided me with this information- NEOTAME is not allowed in Organic Foods in the US. If this author knows something we don’t than they should print that, not regurgitated bull crap. Link here —-> http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/getfile?dDocName=STELPRDC5088960&acct=nopgeninfo

    This article was originally published at farmwars.com. Read the posts/comments following the article and google neotame – there is a lot more to this than outlined in the article.

    The US Federal government has been trying to shut down or change Organic Farming for years.

    This may not work or be true, but believe me.
    I eat Organic food, and shop at Whole Foods.
    The Federal Government is trying to get the rest of us on there poisons. All of us.
    If they could shut down all Organic Farming without an outcry from Americans.
    They would do it right now.
    As well as take away our guns, and freedom of speech on the Internet and in public.
    Oh wait, freedom of speech in public is already gone.
    Well they would with the others that is for sure.

    What about kosher foods will it be there too.

  • http://www.godlikeproductions.com ryan

    Yes its in kosher as well! This bull crap what can we eat now? This was a big eye opener and I thought I knew it all!

    This is the same deal as the whole controversy about cloned meat which also does not have to have a label on it saying the meat is cloned according to the USDA or FDA. It just makes the common mind think now…usually when they write articles about this stuff it’s more than likely past tense, meaning this stuff has already had some time to be unleashed in the world and now they just tell you how they are poisoning you. This is usually the case, now, even though whole foods and trader joes, moms organic market, Yes! organic, are chain stores there are local farmers and the Mennonites who still produce their own produce for sal…oh wait, nevermind, they are raiding them as well. :shrugs: what are you gonna do? only you can answer that question now

  • john

    is it that difficult to see that the poisoners can themselves be poisoned?

    isn’t it better to be nice to each other?
    kindness brings kindness…

  • Frank Borden

    Yes, the federal govt. is in bed with the USDA, and the chemical industry and has been for a long time. They would like nothing more than for all americans to stop eating good food. Poisoning the public is worth it, if you support the companies that pay for your re-election.

    =)) :-@ :-q (:| I can’t believe how gullible and over-the-top some folks are! So what is a diabetic to do, I may ask, if they can’t consumer organic natural sweets?
