Simply Delish Jel Desert - Orange
Product Review (submitted on 7 October 2020):
It is with a heavy heart that I must report that I started developing an intolerance to these jellies. I started noticing that the day after consuming them, I'd consistently suffer diarrhea and severe and extremely painful intestinal cramps. Upon doing research, I discovered that this is common of its main ingredient, carrageenan, or degraded carrageenan (poligeenan) which "has been found to cause inflammation of the gut, altering microbiota, and was found to be a triggering factor of inflammatory bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn disease" and there is much "controversy over the food-additive's safety" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Carrageenan&action=edit§ion=10 ) with some sources claiming it to be cause rheumatism and colon cancer! ( https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-carrageenan-controversy/ ). So I'm grateful to my body's reaction and I shall heed its warning. Note that I've not had the cramps again since discontinuing its consumption.
