In the present age it’s really modern for companies to cut costs and increase a foodproduct durabity and endurance using addition of specially crafted chemical compontents.
Most of which are starting with E and followed by a number for example E328 .
Though this is generally profitable for companies and is prolonging the food durability it’smaking the food less nourishing and more harmful or even sometimes toxic for us humans.
A good friend of mine Necroleak or as earlier known Pro-XeX has created a nice J2MEapplication for mobiles that has a database of most groups of E food chemical additives and is able to tell youif a certain E type like E329 for instance is belonging to which chemical additive group.
This is quite handy especially when you go for grocery to the city market and you have to buy a can of milk or some type ofcanned food.
In the european Union as well as in America, New Zealand, Australia and Israel the E number of the additives are encountered on every non-biological food label.
Hence it’s really helpful when you launch the E-additives application whileyou’re selecting your food and check the food additives E E labelling and therefore know what type of chemical you might swallow while eating the purchased food.
This type of behaviour is really smart and could have a positive impact on your physical health in a long term and help you select a food which is less chemical contaminated.More about the ETATA / E-Additives can be read on it’s official page
Some of the benefits of E-Additives as an application that it is really multi-platform oriented and is supposed to run on most mobile phones which include the J2ME Java Virtual machine
I decided to try the e-additives mobile software on my Nokia 9300i and I have to share the program installed and runs on the mobile quite nice, though the J2ME included with Nokia 9300i is currently quite outdated.
Here are some pictures of e-additives running my Nokia 9300i mobile:
The only downside of th e-additives on my nokia is that some pictures shown on the e-additives website are not appearing on my phone.
However since I can search in E-additives – E database the application is performing it’s original intention through enabling me to check how actually contaminated with chemical additives (preservative food additions) are my daily meals.
