Ingredients to Avoid
- Carrageenan is used to emulsify and thicken drinks and foods and can often be added to oat milks and nut milks. Carrageenan is also common in vegetarian and vegan products – used in place of gelatin. Carrageenan is a natural additive which comes from red seaweed.
- Debate around the safety of carrageenan has been ongoing since the 1960s, as some evidence has shown links with digestive system impairment in the form of bloating, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and food allergies. Carrageenan has also been linked to inflammation which contributes to a number of disorders such as arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
- Carrageenan should be food-grade but carrageenan which has degraded becomes carcinogenic. Degraded carrageenan is not approved to use in food but testing of food-grade carrageenan has found a percentage of the samples to be degraded carrageenan. [Ref: Carrageenan in Oak Milk]
