Kool-Aid is a brand of flavored drink mix owned by Kraft Foods. The powder form was created by Edwin Perkins in 1927 based upon a liquid concentrate called Fruit Smack.

Edwin Elijah Perkins (January 8, 1889 – July 3, 1961), born in Lewis, Iowa, United States, invented the powdered drink mix Kool-Aid in 1927 in Hastings, Nebraska, after his family had moved there from Iowa in 1893.

CITRIC ACID:

Citric acid is one of the most common food additives in use today. You may think it is a harmless derivative of lemons, and that used to be so. Today’s citric acid is a whole different story. It’s a flavoring, a preservative and is used to preserve the texture of some foods.

This weak acid has been used as an additive in processed foods for more than 100 years as a preservative, a sour flavoring, or an emulsifying agent. Because of its effective preservative properties, citric acid can be found in most canned and jarred foods to prevent botulism.

Known from the eighth century, but first isolated in 1784 by Carl Wilhelm Scheele from lemon juice, industrial scale citric acid production began in the late nineteenth century—made from Italian lemons.

World War I interrupted this cycle and an American food chemist, James Currie, discovered a process for making citric acid from mold in 1917. Pfizer started to produce citric acid from molds in 1919.

Black mold is able to efficiently (and cheaply) convert sugars into citric acid. By feeding sucrose or glucose—often derived from corn starch—to the black mold, a citric acid solution is created. Corn is highly likely to be genetically modified (GMO).

GMO are cheaper, but not healthier, and nobody know the long-term effects, like flouride in the drinking water.

MALTODEXTRIN

Maltodextrin is used as a thickener, filler or preservative in many processed foods. It’s an artificially produced white powder that can be enzymatically derived from any starch, most commonly made from corn, rice, potato starch or wheat.

Known Dangers

1. Spikes Blood Sugar

2. Suppresses the Growth of Probiotics (microorganisms that are claimed to provide health benefits when consumed).

3. Made From Genetically Modified Corn

GMO’s are dangerous, more on that later.

4. Allergic Reaction or Side Effects

5. Has No Nutritious Value (Speaks for itself, doesn’t it).

Calcium Phosphate

Allergic Reaction

It is possible to develop an allergic reaction when taking a calcium phosphate supplement. Stop taking the drug immediately and notify a doctor if you experience any of these side effects: difficulty breathing, facial swelling, mouth swelling, itching, dizziness or hives.

Upset Stomach

You can experience digestive issues when taking a calcium phosphate supplement. Vitamin D3 can cause vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite and constipation. Sudden weight loss can also be a side effect of the drug.

Urinary Tract

Your urinary tract can also be affected by calcium phosphate. Supplemental doses of vitamin D3 can cause changes in the amount of urine outputted as well as an increased need to pee. These side effects can also be related to the increased thirst that can result from calcium phosphate supplementation.

Lethargy

Although rare, you can feel fatigued after taking calcium phosphate supplements. It can also potentially cause weakness. Mood changes can occur when taking the drug.

Aches and Pains

Body aches and pains is a side effect of the oral form of vitamin D3. Your bones and muscles may have an achy feeling. Headache is another reported side effect of the drug.
