TARTARIC ACID

Tartaric acid

23/5/05
Tartaric acid occurs naturally in many fruits, (grapes, etc.) and is only a concern if large amounts are added.  As far as I know, the amounts found in Welches grape juice, etc. are perfectly fine.  In the preparation of Cream of Tartar, it is the starch base about which we are concerned and, interestingly, Dr. Haas used this as an example of a safe compound which is eliminated because of the filler (starch).

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
