You May Be Eating Black Mold Every Day without Even Knowing It

IMG_4140.JPGBring up the topic of black mold and you will see fear and disgust on people’s faces. Black mold is a particularly insidious form of mold that is very toxic to humans and difficult to eradicate from homes.

Did you know that you might be eating it every day?

Many food products contain citric acid, a harmless sounding ingredient. It is widely used as a preservative to extend shelf life and prevent spoiling. It also enhances savory flavors with it’s acidic and slightly sour taste, and induces cravings by intensifying the other flavors in the food.

Technically, citric acid is a form of vitamin C, so it seems innocuous enough – perhaps even making one imagine citrus fruit and fresh orchards as sources for this chemical.

Unfortunately, the actual picture behind citric acid is a little grimmer and darker. Although citric acid is a naturally occurring substance found in citrus fruits like lemons, oranges and grapefruit, in reality, the citric acid used as a food additive is a hidden genetically modified (GMO) ingredient manufactured using the mold Aspergillus niger that feeds on corn syrup and glucose. It has been known to set off allergenic responses for sensitive consumers.

This process was discovered in the early 1900s by food chemist James Currie and to this day most manufactured citric acid is made through the same method of fermenting mold with GMO corn.

The process is a complicated, technical and often secretive and competitive one, beginning with highly processed corn syrup, moving on to the fermentation process using a genetically modified strain of Aspergillus niger (black mold), which causes the catabolism of glucose sugar by the mold, which then results in secretion of citric acid into the culture broth.

While the FDA has labelled manufactured citric acid as “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS), it may be a good idea to start reading your food labels and finding out more about the potential dangers of this “harmless” food ingredient.

    Freedom needs a stronger definition that is not defined by the oppressor, Freedom is a event that has one boundary and that is, your freedom does not oppress the liberty of others. So the government is to be restrained as to not abridge our freedom or interpret our freedom we set the
    limits for our self, it is our right. My freedom and rights need protecting as a citizen I see the government is grabbing control of rights personal lives . The enemy hides in plain sight
    WE HAVE TO LEARN TO KNOW HIM. he IS US.

    I’ve been noticing a lot of black in the past few months. Things turn black instead of brown. Scabs turn black. My fresh grown mint leaves turned black this morning after I used them. This article blames it on GMO’s.

    There are plenty of magenta red filaments that I find thanks to chem-trails, they look like a hair but can be separated into filaments. I find them on my screen door after a rain, on my floors. These look the the filaments that I photographed growing out of my body, palm, toenails.

    Yes I’m worried.

    CITIRC ACID is NOT ‘technically a form of VITAMIN C (ascorbic acid). THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN BY IGNORANT PEOPLE WHO ARE BURIED IN THEIR OWN MISINFORMATION.
