Conservatives are on fire!
And they need your help!
As part of our ongoing commitment to truth in government, The American Conservatives is running a series of articles that examine some of the biggest controversies, misinformation, and outright lies coming out of Washington.
In this article, Conservative columnist and author Chris Ruddy weighs in on a new report that the FDA says gluten-free products like cereal, pizza, pasta, and pasta sauce are not considered a safe food.
Here’s what Ruddy had to say: If you’ve ever wondered why the FDA believes that your gluten-containing cereal is safe for your kids, here’s the answer: Because you don’t eat it.
The FDA has declared gluten-based cereals “unsafe” because the FDA has found evidence that the products contain gluten that could lead to health problems.
This is a big deal, because we’re not going to eat cereal unless we’re being fed a product that contains gluten.
The reason the FDA thinks it’s safe is because it’s the FDA.
It’s a watchdog agency, and it’s going to enforce the law as best it can.
But the truth is, the FDA is not the FDA, and its regulatory body is a sham.
This isn’t some bureaucratic office trying to figure out how to get around a food safety law that doesn’t even exist.
It was created in 1982 by then-Secretary of Agriculture Richard V. Lindzen to protect the food supply from food fraud, the use of adulterated products, and adulteration of food by consumers.
The agency was created by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1982, after Lindzen’s predecessor, David Yerkes, was fired for a string of scandals.
The current FDA chief, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, was hired to head the agency in 2016 after the FDA had to cut its budget by $1 billion.
The goal of the agency is to help food producers and consumers comply with FDA regulations, but the agency also has an interest in maintaining its reputation as a trusted source of scientific information and information that is free from government influence.
But as a public health agency, the agency must adhere to federal law and regulations and not allow its actions to be swayed by political considerations or partisan politics.
So, while the FDA’s mandate is to protect our food supply, it also has a very strong interest in preserving the FDA as an independent watchdog.
And the FDA seems to have been working with political appointees to protect that agenda.
So why are these products considered safe?
The FDA does have a list of safe food ingredients, which the agency describes as “foods that do not contain gluten, milk proteins, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, or seeds.”
These foods are not necessarily food to eat because they aren’t considered a food by the FDA (which is a separate agency).
They’re food to consume.
But they aren, however, not safe because they’re not actually considered food.
This list does not include gluten-filled cereals like Cereal Storm, which are made from flour and sugar, and are marketed as gluten- and milk-free.
They also aren’t labeled as containing wheat or rye, two ingredients that are listed in the list.
That’s because those products have been shown to contain gluten in the form of gluten oligosaccharides, which aren’t foods.
But because they contain the gluten protein and the starch from wheat and rye, they are also considered safe by the CDC.
So is gluten-less cereal safe?
While the FDA does not explicitly define gluten-like substances in its regulations, it does define two types of “gluten-like” substances.
Gluten-less gluten oligo compounds are the same as those found in cereal products.
These include starch-forming and carbohydrate-forming gluten oligomers.
The latter is a form of starch that breaks down to form gluten-derived proteins that are less likely to be detected by the body when people eat the product.
According to the FDA website, “a gluten-rich oligomer is the same or similar to a wheat-derived oligomer, but it is much lower in gluten than a wheat oligomer.”
So it’s not as though cereal products contain a form that contains the same amount of gluten as a wheat product.
That means that the two are not the same, and cereal manufacturers and consumers shouldn’t be confused.
The CDC lists two different types of gluten-sugar polymers, the type found in a cereal like Cerelum, that are the very same thing as gluten.
There is also another type of gluten polymeric substance found in cereals called gliadin.
These are not technically considered gluten-safe, but are a very common food additive.
And, again, the products listed in The American Conservatism article don’t contain any gluten.
Ruddy writes: You could argue that gluten-Free is just a word.
It might sound good to have a label that says, “glue-
