Dairy Associations Lobby The FDA To Alter The Definition Of “Milk” To Include Aspartame

definition of "milk"It’s not quite as bad as some have reported – cancer-causing artificial sweetening additives such as as aspartame likely would still need to be listed in tiny letters as ingredients. But the milk could otherwise be packaged, marketed, and sold as just “milk.” The stated goal is to reverse the trend of lagging dairy consumption by children, particularly in school. From the U.S. government’s Federal Register:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition requesting that the Agency amend the standard of identity for milk and 17 other dairy products to provide for the use of any safe and suitable sweetener as an optional ingredient.

IDFA and NMPF request their proposed amendments to the milk standard of identity to allow optional characterizing flavoring ingredients used in milk to be sweetened with any safe and suitable sweetener—including non-nutritive sweeteners such as aspartame. IDFA and NMPF state that lower-calorie flavored milk would particularly benefit school children who, according to IDFA and NMPF, are more inclined to drink flavored milk than unflavored milk at school.

    Imposed incestuous cannibalistic systems are creating their own self-destruction.

    For a chemocratic corporatocracy to maintain control of an awakening planetary civilization within the scale of a cosmological construct requires everything everywhere within the system framework be chemically altered, genetically modified, processed, synthesized and commoditized to promote and push specific system agenda factors and contain human awareness of the system they serve.

    It will be its own demise.

    • one of the techniques of brainwashing is to totally isolate the individual from the outside world. when they have engineered our outside world entirely, it may become very difficult to find a true reference point.

    why the fuck do they need to flavor milk? This is madness!

    I wasn’t aware that cows produced aspartame. Science!

  4. ‘While the masses are preoccupied’ snarky comments and cynicism aside, I find it harder to dismiss the egregious day after day dismantling of an individuals ability to be in control of their own health and well being. And this is not a false outrage ‘obamacare’ swallowed and vomited talking point.

    I hang my head in sorrow that in America our right to bear arms against physical
    aggression by the government is overwhelmingly more focused on than the
    surreptitious chemical and biological aggression on our health by the
    for profit corporations.

    When it comes to milk (and other foods, and medicinal treatments, etc.), beyond just being informed of whats being foisted upon us, we’ve been prevented by law to even access alternatives. Natural alternatives.

    The argument that adding unhealthy additives to something in an attempt to make people healthy is so preposterous that it could be a comedy sketch… but they can already do that. But they want to change the legal definition to include it so people won’t be aware it’s unhealthy. That’s the level of fukk you they have for you and your kids.

  5. Ugh…any idiot can f*ck something up…but only a corporation can devote hundreds of millions in research, lobbying, marketing and production just to take something that already fine the way it was and transform it into unusable toxic garbage.

    Obviously a plan to kill children w/ PKU.

    > IDFA and NMPF state that lower-calorie flavored
    would particularly benefit school children

    it more likely benefits the money grubbing leeches
    who proposed this idea
    and those who are paid to whore for it
    but nonetheless
    90% of Merkins will turn a blind eye to this
    as they have been doing for a century now
