Food, Drink, and Pet Food Manufacturers: Stop using toxic carrageenan!

Carrageenan is a food additive that is commonly used to thicken or improve the texture of foods such as soy milk, ice cream, yogurt, and even canned pet food. The problem is that Dr. Joanne K. Tobacman from the University of Illinois College of Medicine has found in her research that carrageenan is linked with cancer and gastrointestinal problems. She found that carrageenan causes inflammation in our bodies. Inflammation causes heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, and more. She also found that it caused glucose intolerance, and insulin resistance in mice, which increases the risk of diabetes. Why do we need this additive in foods??? Let's get them to use something else!

This petition was delivered to:
  • Food and pet food manufacturers who use carrageenan
  • Well Pet
    Consumer Affairs
  • Media contact for Whitewave Foods (Silk)
    Jarod Ballentine, consumer relations
