    Default FDA announces recall of food additive

    hvp recall - Bing

    The FDA announced that HVP manufactured by Basic Food Flavors has been recalled, and an estimated 10,000 products are affected by this recall. Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) is a flavor enhancer commonly used in processed foods.

    HVP is found in snack foods such as potato chips and pretzels. It's also used in dry mixes for chip dips, gravy, au jus and marinades. HVP is also used in frozen foods (such as taquitos and quesadillas) and in fresh foods such as potato salad and fresh dips. In addition to these items, it is also used in many other grocery products.

    The recall was issued due to possible salmonella contamination. Salmonella is one of the most common causes of bacterial food-borne illness in the United States. It can cause fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

    In the next slides, we list specific products included in this major food recall.:

    "Acid-hydrolyzed vegetable protein, or HVP, is produced by boiling cereals or legumes, such as soy, corn, or wheat, in hydrochloric acid and then neutralizing the solution with sodium hydroxide. The acid hydrolyzes, or breaks down, the protein in vegetables into their component amino acids. The resulting dark coloured liquid contains, among other amino acids, glutamic acid, which consumers are more familiar with in the form of its sodium salt, monosodium glutamate, or MSG. It is used as a flavor enhancer in many processed foods, and circumvents the necessity to add the controversial monosodium glutamate on the label."wiki

    We're almost totally off processed/prepared foods at my house. The only thing left is pasta, cereal and bread, and maybe a jar of spaghetti sauce here and there. I cannot believe the crap they put in our food.

    good on you...processed foods are really bad. and, fwiw, those things you mentioned are not actually bad foods at all to buy prepared. you can get all of those things made from whole ingredients with no additives/preservatives/unpronounceable shit.

    It's so hard to avoid damn MSG. It's under so many different names and seems to be in everything.
