If you google Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, you will be overwhelmed with the amount of articles that show up about the recent recall of a additive, not a food! This recall is reported to be heading in the direction of the largest food recall in U.S. history. It’s not the spinach and it’s not the peanuts. It’s a additive added to a large majority of our food!
I’d highly recommend reading about the HVP recall as it sheds light on a very serious issue we have with our industrial food system. The industrial monster is a raging diseased animal and is on the loose!
Check out some of these articles:
