Title: MiO Liquid Water Enhancer
Post by: Sassafras on June 23, 2012, 08:27:33 PM

Do you want some liquid excitotoxins in your water?  Add MiO.

If Kraft didn't make some pretty damn good cheese, I would boycott them for endangerment to the public.

Keep up the good fight!!!

Some clarification is needed for my starter post.  Reading the post today, it seems to me it is a little too sarcastic and way too lacking in explanation.

I have posted attachments of the ingredients for your reading pleasure.

If you notice each product contains citric acid, natural flavors, sucralose, and acesulfame potassium.  For people with allergies to MSG and other excitotoxins, these ingredients are a big flashing red light and screams "don't touch with a ten foot pole" (or any length of pole for that matter).

Citric acid use to be the real thing - from a lemon or orange, but it is cheaper to manufacturer it now.  If this ingredient is low on the ingredients list it is sometimes OK, but if it is the second or third item, avoid it like the plague.  Reactions are more than likely for MSG sensitive people.

Natural flavors can be ANYTHING "natural".  Read quote below:

The definition of natural flavor under the Code of Federal Regulations is: “the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional” (21CFR101.22).

Food Q&A: Just what is ‘natural’ flavoring? by Phil Lempert

In a nut shell, ingredients that are hydrolyzed, autolyzed, and extracts (three of the four NO-NOs, MSG being the fourth) can be added under the "natural flavors" ingredient.

The for last two ingredients - sucralose and acesulfame potassium.  These ingredients are fake sugars.  MSG sensitive people have been known to react to fake sugars.  The results are similar to MSG reactions - light sensitivity, light headed, dizzy, nausea, and more flu-like symptoms.

And finally:
MiO Energy has two ingredients that are extracts.  Guarana extract and ginseng extract.  All extracts are to be avoided by people with a sensitivity to Monosodium Glutamate and other excitotoxins.  These days, extracts can be found in many foods, hair care products, and toothpaste.  I would imagine there are more place extracts can be found, but they allude me at this time.

Good night.

Keep up the good fight!!
