so be sure to post a warning for soy but they're on their own for finely chopped plastic-- really?

 

here's a thought

 

hopefully people will start getting allergic to dd

 

and it will become a respected allergen?

 

swishykitty,

 

bottom line if it's fda approved it's ok to use with food

 

some people are grossly allergic to lots of things that doesn't mean we have to avoid them for gen pop baking

general population

 

dd ain't fda approved

The difference is soy is an ingredient.  It's not seen or expected in some foods.  DD is easily seen and easily removed when it's on a decoration.  It's easily avoidable.  Is this horse dead yet?

I'm certainly aware of soy allergies...........If I were claiming that my products were soy-free, or did not contain products that contain or have come in contact with soy, it would be a concern.  I DO NOT DO THAT, as I am in no way equipped to make such a cake.

 

Anyone receiving a cake from me receives written notification that my cakes are not suited to ANYONE with a food allergy or sensitivity, as all of my ingredients and tools have come into contact with and/or contain common allergens such as soy, wheat, dairy, etc.  Since I can't write that on every slice, it becomes the burden of the allergic individual, or their parent, to determine if the cake is "safe" for consumption. 

 

I'm not food allergic, but I would believe that those who are must be very careful about their choices, ask pertinent questions, and pass on consuming something that they cannot verify is safe for them.

 

I chose 100% soy wax because soy is an edible product and paraffin is no longer considered as such.

 

I think it's quite obvious that if anyone is claiming to make soy-free cakes, they certainly should NOT be using soy wax to coat their boards............

 

As for plastic glitter, no one should be consuming it, either knowingly or unknowingly.  We now have micro-plastics in the food chain, in particular in fish.  It's bad enough that it's in things that we can't see and can't label as such.  No one needs to be deliberately feeding it to anyone.

Who knows that it's plastic? There are those who make cakes who don't know this. How can we expect the end consumer to know it?

 

Sure, if a wire is in cake, the majority of the population would know it's not meant to be eaten; but Disco Dust? I seriously doubt the average person knows that it's plastic and is not supposed to be ingested. Go ahead- take a non-scientific poll of your non-caking friends.

If I asked some of my friends if they know that disco isn't edible, I would probably get this in response: "You mean that crap my boyfriend comes home covered in after a night out?" icon_biggrin.gif

And you could say, yes,because it's the same stuff!

People don't know that it's plastic glitter, I've told a few people that I won't use it and they're always surprised to know why

I wanted to weigh in on this topic since it has taken some odd turns and in some cases accusatory stances.  But with the FDA approved foods that we eat from lets say McDonalds you are making the assumption that you are also buying real food that would be harmless.  So the argument that we are always buying with the complete knowledge of things be they sold from private or public companies is not a fact.

Please read the contents of that wonderful seasonal sandwich called the McRib and tell me if ingesting a bit of plastic is a concern when people unknowingly eat it everyday.

FDA-approved foods are not "harmless", they are typically "generally recognized as safe" in given concentrations. Any food can be harmful if you have too much of it.

As for the McRib, it's true that it contains a lot of ingredients and I certainly wouldn't have one every day, but I don't see a problem eating one every once in a while. It's a common trick to prey on people's emotions by giving unflattering names to innocuous combinations of ingredients (i.e. ground up meat + salt + water = "meat glue") or pointing out that some ingredients used in food (such as flour-bleaching agents) may have other uses.

The site you linked to is financially supported by companies selling "natural" products so their take on the McRib is not surprising.

like was mentioned up thread apple seeds have arsenic in them

 

everything has a scarey scientific name--everything is a chemical

 

titanium dioxide is just white food color right?

(that can be a nasty allergen to some)

 

i'm not saying i personally knowingly add azodicarbonamide to my cakes

 

i'm just saying at least they are telling you it's in there

 

from Tennessee OSHA Hazmat training:

 

Basic Nature of Chemicals

  • Everything is (a) chemical
  • Every chemical can be "hazardous"
  • "Hazardous" means there is scientific evidence that the chemical causes harmful effects during normal use
  • Harmful effects range from irritation to cancer

 

 

Paracelsus, 1493-1541

"All substances are poisons, there is none which is not a poison. The right dose differentiates the poison from the remedy."

So. Am I making a little photo collage with a jar of disco dust and strippers to make the point once and for all, or are you? icon_biggrin.gif
