For starters, this ingredient you may want to avoid is found in nearly all processed foods. Nitrates could be deadly, carcinogenic preservatives. This ingredient is something you may want to research further before you put it in your body. Yummy.

2. Potassium Bromate

This ingredient is in baked goods. Potassium Bromate could cause kidney and nervous system disorders, as well as cancer. Also, it is banned worldwide except in the U.S. and Japan. Tasty, eh?!

3. Rapeseed Oil

A common ingredient is an emulsifier and stabilizer. And it is in certain baked goods, processed meats, and dairy products. Yet it could cause heart disease, vision loss, and cancer. Want some?

Ingredients to Avoid to Make Your Body Happy by Awayion Beauty

A tasty ingredient making restaurant food addictive and tasty. Yet, researchers blame this flavor enhancer for reproductive, nervous system, and brain disorders. 

MSG is in sauces, gravies, soups, and certain baby formulas.  It is also found in some low-fat & no-fat milk, processed foods, gum, candy. And as a bonus they use this ingredient on non-organic fruits and veggies as a wax or pesticide. Very fancy, eh?

5. Urea | Uric Acid | Carbamide

This ingredient you may want to avoid — because it’s pee. Yes, uric acid is excreted from urine and other bodily fluids. They use it to “brown” baked goods, such as pretzels. Yum.
