In the event that the public becomes too informed and savvy about toxic additives in our food supply, what's a multi-billion dollar industry to do? The first step is to create another more toxic version of the additive. The second step is to collude with regulatory authorities such as the FDA to convince the public that the new, more toxic additive is safe. The third and final step is to prevent the toxic additive from being listed on any ingredient labels. From the folks that brought us Aspartame, meet Neotame, a deadly sweetener that you'll never see on a label because...well that's just the way the FDA wants it.

"The FDA loosened all labeling requirements for Neotame as part of a large-scale effort to make it a near-ubiquitous artificial sweetener, to be found on the tabletop, in all prepared foods, even in organics. It simply does not have to be included in the ingredient list. How's that for stealth?
If you purchase processed foods, whether USDA Certified Organic or not, that food may likely contain Neotame because it is cost-effective, and since no one knows it is there, there is no public backlash.
The USDA states that their National Organic Program (NOP) does not permit the use of neotame in products labeled certified organic, however this is likely a deceptive ploy to soothe the public's concerns about this toxic sweetener"
Honestly, I'm sick and tired of seeing this. If Cornucopia Institute and Organic Consumer's Association feel confident that neotame is not in the organic food supply, I choose to believe them. Yes, it is a bad ingredient, most likely very toxic; but what good does fear mongering do without proof that what you are saying is true?

Thank you, Mellowsong. Paranoia runs deep throughout the medical and food industries.
