There are ingredients that we still eat despite the fact that they are banned in certain countries. 

Banned ingredients we still consume:

1. Dough conditioners 

Dough conditioners are chemicals that give dough a certain texture. We’re specifically talking about potassium bromate, which is a possible human carcinogen. 

Potassium bromate is banned in:

• India 

• Brazil 

• Canada 

• The EU

• China 

2. Brominate vegetable oil 

This was patented as a flame retardant. But it’s being used in sports drinks as an emulsifier. It is a possible human carcinogen and has been linked to organ failure.

3. Propylparaben 

This is a preservative in tortillas, muffins, and certain pies. It has been linked to problems with sexual organs.

4. BHA and BHT

This is one of the preservatives used in certain cereals and dehydrated potato products.
