Extractions: Food additive cemetery TOP ANTIOXIDANTS retard the oxidation of unsaturated fats and oils, colorings, and flavorings. Oxidation leads to rancidity, flavor changes, and loss of color. Most of those effects are caused by reaction of oxygen in the air with fats. CARCINOGEN is a chemical or other agent that causes cancer in animals or humans. CHELATING AGENTS trap trace amounts of metal atoms that would otherwise cause food to discolor or go rancid. EMULSIFIERS keep oil and water mixed together. FLAVOR ENHANCERS have little or no flavor of their own, but accentuate the natural flavor of foods. They are often used when very little of a natural ingredient is present. THICKENING AGENTS are natural or chemically modified carbohydrates that absorb some of the water that is present in food, thereby making the food thicker. Thickening agents "stabilize" factory-made foods by keeping the complex mixtures of oils, water, acids, and solids well mixed. TOP Chemicals usually are tested for an ability to cause cancer by feeding large dosages to small numbers of rats and mice. Large dosages are used to compensate for the small number of animals that can be used (a few hundred is considered a big study, though it is tiny compared to the U.S. population of 270 million). Also, the large dosages can compensate for the possibility that rodents may be less sensitive than people to a particular chemical (as happened with thalidomide). Some people claim that such tests are improper and that large amounts of any chemical would cause cancer. That is not true. Huge amounts of most chemicals do

Extractions: The most interesting trend is the consumption of bottled water, which rose by 186% from 2.9 to 8.2 gallons per year per capita between 1980-1992. Soft drinks are by far the most popular beverages by quantity consumed. The following are the trends between 1980 and 1992; Per capita consumption of soft drink increased by 29% from 35 -45 gallons per year. Another drink that is gaining popularity is club soda with a 53% increase from 5 to 8 gallons per person per year. On the other hand, juices and milk experienced a decline in consumption. Juice declined by 6% from 7.3 to 6.8 gallons per capita per year. Milk consumption went down by 5.5% from 27-25 gallons per capita. Alcoholic beverages have experienced a decline in consumption between the same period. (Putnam, 1994 and Jobson's wine handbook 1994) These trends are similar to what was reported by Burrid et al 1996 when she compared consumption changes between 1977 and 1994. A 1994- 96 USDA food intake survey has shown a reversal in some of the trends. For instance, there has been an increase in the amount of fruit drinks consumed from 84 grams per person as reported in Borrud in 1994 to 95 grams in 1996 as reported in USDA survey. One of the reasons for the increase of fruit juice intake is that consumers are shifting to natural products and foods that promote health. (Kuntz 1998, Sloan 1998). Marketers have taken advantage of this trend by developing drinks and emphasing ingredients that promote health like vitamin C in orange juice and calcium in milk. Other micronutrients and herbs are also getting attention especially in meal replacement drinks.

Extractions: Hot Topics SUMMARY Health authorities around the world all agree that transmission of HIV/AIDS via food and beverages is not a known risk . This situation needs to be made clear to all employers and employees in all branches of the food/drink industry and to the consuming public. It needs to be emphasised to persons with HIV/AIDS that they must comply with the other health and safety requirements applicable to all food handlers. They are more likely than others to acquire one of those diarrhoeal diseases that can be transmitted by food, and other infections or lesions. In this event, the food handlers should be managed according to the guidelines issued by the UK Department of Health. The disease AIDS ( Acquired lmmune Deficiency Syndrome) is caused by a group of viruses called HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). HIV damages the immune system making the patient more susceptible to secondary infections, especially diarrhoeal diseases, lung infections and cancers. Millions of people around the world are thought to be infected with the virus and the number is increasing rapidly. It is inevitable that some of these people will be food handlers. The current statement (updated January 2001) by the US Centers for Disease Control confirms that there is no known risk of transmission of bloodborne and sexually transmitted infections such as HIV/AIDS during the preparation or serving of food or beverages. The statement on "HIV and Its Transmission" includes
