5 icky things you probably don't want to eat (but are anyway)

 
From beetles in drinks to slime in hamburgers, we’ve seen a lot of disgusting things cropping up in our favorite foods lately. Just when we think we’re home free, however, the Huffington Post finds even more yucky additives lurking in pantry and refrigerator staples. Put down your frappe and step away from your after school snack, sweeties. It’s time to get a li’l grossed out.

 


Cleaning agents

Ammonium sulfate is a salt compound that’s usually found in fertilizers and heavy-duty cleaning products. But it’s also made its way into rolls at certain fast-food joints, like Subway. While it’s safe to consume in small amounts, that doesn’t mean we want a side of acid-neutralizer with our veggie sub.

 

Sand

Silicon dioxide, a key ingredient in this sticky beach constant, is used to keep food from clumping. Beware of Wendy’s chili and Taco Bell’s meat filling unless you’re looking to feel a li’l closer to the shore.

 

Sunscreen

Did you know that after milk has its fat removed, it has a blue hue? No? That’s probably because many milk manufacturers use titanium dioxide, also found in sunscreen, to whiten it up. Yum.

 

Shellac

So Starbucks ditched the beetles, but that’s not the only creepy crawly in your munchies. Shellac, a secretion from a Thai bug, is used not only to give your shabby-chic dresser some shine, but also to gloss up your jelly beans.

 

Plastic

Azodicarbonamide is in some of our favorite products: running shoes, water bottles, yoga mats. It’s also in hamburger buns—keep that in mind during your next cookout.
