Beware: laxative chemical to be used in winemaking!


So disappointing to read an article saying that “Winemakers will begin using a chemical additive that is also used in toothpaste and laxatives, after the Food Standards agency ruled it safe. The Australian reports that the Winemakers Federation of Australia has won approval to use sodium carboxymethyl cellulose — commonly known as cellulose gum, or food additive E466 — to prevent crystals and cloudiness in white and sparkling wines.”

Wine lovers, ask for full information about what exactly is in the wine bottle – including any chemicals! Even better – drink only wine without chemicals and additives!
