Quality Sprinkles like to say that a small risk is still a risk. Even if research does not find toxicity in all preservatives. Preservatives definitely don’t match a healthy diet so Quality Sprinkles decided not to include any of them in our ingredients.
When the food is to be stored for a long period, preservatives are used to keep quality and flavor. The preservatives prevent excess water in the foods that cause bacteria and fungal growth. They also keep proper pH of food; can act as leavening during manufacturing process, and give better color.
Many preservatives can give health problems. They can cause different allergies and conditions such as hyperactivity and Attention Deficit Disorder.
Because food is so important to survival, food preservation is one of the oldest technologies used by human beings. But we don’t use such old methods because it’s unhealthy to users. We keep our products fresh and good tasting through production environmental control and other production control systems.
