Living and Thriving Gluten Free

Healthy & Gluten Free


What They Do: Used to decolourize food (non-flour use). Bleaching agents do not include pigments.

These are used to remove color, generally unwanted color, to make food appear more appetizing. This is often done to byproducts of food production, so that unwanted food waste can be converted to another food product. These products often are not pleasant looking, and will need to be bleached before they can be further processed to look edible.

This would not be used by a home cook, as food is generally used as is. Also, home cooks would not be using what often is a waste product, and should be discarded, or will find a way to use it in something where the color would not be an issue.

Many bleaching agents have been banned in various parts of the world. Those countries that have not banned them will still see food products containing these types of ingredients, even though there is evidence that these substances are dangerous to humans.
