EC permitted additives

The EU has listed over 4000 artificial additives which may be added to foods and 'EU permitted additives' covers them all. Although many are harmless or even beneficial, it also includes chemical flavourings and colourings (many of which have been linked to behavioural problems and other health concerns) and artificial preservatives like BHA and BHT which have been identified as possible causes of cancer. For many nutritionists, 'EU permitted additives' is the number one ingredient to avoid.

Some of those additives should be kept far away from anyone. Better to make your own treats.
