Natural Additives: Bugs, Hair, and Anal Secretions, Oh My

by: Daisy Luther

April 24, 2013

Have you ever selected a product at the supermarket and felt virtuous because the ingredients label boasted of “natural coloring” or “natural flavors”?  That sure sounds a lot better than those chemical concoctions, right?

Well, maybe not.  Just because something is “natural” doesn’t mean you would want to eat it if you knew where it was derived. The items that follow aren’t necessarily harmful, but they really don’t sound very appetizing.

Let’s take a pictorial tour of the real sources of natural colors and flavors:

Natural Red #4

Starbucks recently came under fire for their use of “Natural Red #4″, also known as “carmine”.  It seems that the Cochineal beetle, originating from Central America, is  ground up to provide a luscious pink color to the java chain’s  Strawberry Frappuccino. This certainly gives a new meaning to the term “Beetlejuice”.

Castoreum

Beware of those “naturally flavored” vanilla and raspberry items.  They are naturally flavored with secretions from the anal glands of beavers, a substance called “Castoreum“.

L-Cysteine

L-Cysteine is a “natural” dough conditioner that is used in commercial bread and pastry products. 80% of the L-Cysteine used in North America is made from human hair, while the other 20% is made from duck feathers.  Industry insiders report that most of the hair is derived from Chinese women.
