Biotech company using cell lines from aborted babies in food enhancement testing

Pepsico, Kraft Foods, and Nestlé are among the corporations partnered with a biotech company found using aborted fetal cell lines to test food flavor enhancers, according to a pro-life watchdog group.

The internationally recognized biotech company, Senomyx, boasts innovation and success in “flavour programs” designed to reduce MSG, sugar and salt in food and beverage products.  Senomyx notes their collaborators provide them research and development funding plus royalties on sales of products using their flavor ingredients.

Pro-life watchdog group, Children of God for Life (CGL), has called upon the public to target the major corporations in a boycott, unless the company ceases to use aborted fetal cell lines in their product testing.

Aborted Fetal Tissue Used to Test New Food Additives

Unlike what the wording of source articles suggest – No, you are not eating aborted fetal tissue in new food products. Stem cells and aborted fetal tissue are, however, used in the process of testing new flavor additives. The rationale for this method is to find additives allowing the reduction of MSG, salt, and sugar in food ingredients.

Some may not mind stem cell research for other purposes, but for artificial food additives? Newly manufactured ones that may be worse than current ingredients? All the more reason to ditch process foods and stop supporting the food companies condoning this method, whether it’s the stem cell research or the new food additives or both that grinds your gears.

Senomyx: Pepsi Ignores Criticism on Use of Aborted Cells in Research

PepsiCo is ignoring criticism from pro-life advocates upset that the company contracts with a research firm that uses fetal cells from babies victimized by abortions to test and produce artificial flavor enhancers.

    The first thing that popped into my head after hearing about this was ‘Solyent Green’.  We are eating people in the form of stamina pills, testing procedures and flavorings?

Last week, dozens of pro-life groups called for a boycott of Pepsi because of information that came to light in March showing biotech company Senomyx was found to be testing their food additives using fetal cells from abortions. Senomyx ignored a letter from the pro-life group Children of God for Life, which complained about its practices.
