ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid
A crystaline acid C10H16N2O8, that acts as a strong chelating agent. The sodium salt of EDTA is used as an antidote for metal poisoning, an anticoagulant, and an ingredient in a variety of industrial regents. A colourless crystalline slightly soluble organic compound used in inorganic chemistry and biochemistry. It is a powerful chelating agent used to stabilize bleach in detergents.


Side effects may include:  Nausea, vomiting, diahrea, numbness or tingling around your mouth, headache, feeling like you might pass out, severe blistering, peeling or rash.


Opinion:  What seems to scare me the most about most of these "chemicals" that are in our food, is that most of the information I'm finding for them, are in drug journals. These chemicals that they add to our food are used as drugs, and if you've heard one advertisement about the after effects of most drugs, some of them are lethal.  Why is it allowed in our food?  I just don't understand.
