    Much ado about nothing. Nowhere in this article is it mentioned how or why brominated vegetable oil shouldn't be in any food. It seems like there is more hype than substance to this.

    If there is an ingredient added that is less than 2% of the overall volume, the companies can add it without showing it on the label.
    Take canned beans, for instance. That sludge on the bottom of the can is not from the beans, but from flour to help thicken the beans.
