What is the Codex Alimentarius? How does it affect your food?
If you were like me, and billions of other people, you have NEVER HEARD of the Codex Alimentarius, but here it is people. There are even some theories about them… but you will have to venture down the research hole yourself on this one…
From Wiki 2014:
“The Codex Alimentarius covers all foods, whether processed, semi-processed or raw. In addition to standards for specific foods, the Codex Alimentarius contains general standards covering matters such as food labeling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, and procedures for assessing the safety of foods derived from modern biotechnology. It also contains guidelines for the management of official i.e. governmental import and export inspection and certification systems for foods.”
