Another altered logo inspired by the rampant use of cellulose (wood pulp), by the leading producers of processed foods, this particular design attributed to the guilty culprit, Nestlé. Wood pulp is used as an extender whose use in a roster of food products, from crackers and ice creams to puddings and baked goods, is now being exposed. What you’re actually paying for – and consuming – may be surprising.

Cellulose is virgin wood pulp that has been processed and manufactured to different lengths for functionality, though use of it and its variant forms (cellulose gum, powdered cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, etc.) is deemed safe for human consumption, according to the FDA, which regulates most food industry products.  The government agency sets no limit on the amount of cellulose that can be used in food products meant for human consumption.

Humans are unable to digest cellulose since we lack the appropriate enzymes to break it down. This is a food adulterant and another example of the wholly corrupt nature of the federal agency responsible for food safety but continues to prove itself more concerned with corporate profit. More >

The following is a snippet from Food Freedom‘s article on wood as a food additive. I couldn’t resist playing around with the corporate logos of the guilty food producers.

The recent class-action lawsuit brought against Taco Bell raised questions about the quality of food many Americans eat each day.

Chief among those concerns is the use of cellulose (read: wood pulp), an extender whose use in a roster of food products, from crackers and ice creams to puddings and baked goods, is now being exposed. What you’re actually paying for — and consuming — may be surprising. Kraft Foods, General Mills, and Jack in the Box, Nestlé and Kellogs are just a few of the food producers that save as much as 30% in ingredient costs by opting for cellulose as a filler or binder in processed foods. [Note: Humans are unable to digest cellulose]. More >

There are many Japan-In-Crisis artworks floating around the internet at the moment,  Renan Valadares has produced the best subtle & powerful graphic I’ve seen so far. (This is an edited version). It really needs to be used to raise awareness of the crisis & raise funds for the relief effort.
