    Default Carrageenan Does Not Belong in Food

    This is a letter from a researcher asking the National Organics Standards Board to Remove Carrageenan From Being Allowed in Organic Foods
    Joanne K. Tobacman, M.D.
    27 April 2012

    Dear Members of the National Organic Standards Board:
    I am a physician-scientist at the University of Illinois College of Medicine who has been studying the effects of carrageenan in human cells and in animal models for almost two decades. With collaborators, I have published 18 peer-reviewed papers that address the biological effects of carrageenan. Most of this work has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Veterans’’ Administration.

    In this comment, three major points are addressed. These are:
    1) exposure to carrageenan causes inflammation which is harmful;
    2) the amount of carrageenan consumed in the human diet is sufficient to cause inflammation;
    3) both undegradedand degraded carrageenan cause inflammation.
