FDA Bans 7 Synthetic Flavors and Enhancers — FoodDive.com

The FDA is cracking down on the use of flavors and enhancers that it believes to be detrimental to health:

“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Oct. 5 it will no longer allow seven synthetic flavoring substances and enhancers to be used in foods and beverages. The action came in response to a 2016 citizen petition from consumer and environmental groups showing the substances induce cancer in laboratory animals, the agency said. The groups sued the FDA earlier this year to force a decision.”
