Sugar Balloon Busted: The Myth Of Vegetarian Food (2009)


Recommended Posts

Dear Saadh Sangat Jee,

Please find these links for a film seva (The Sugar Balloon Busted) about the contamination of various vegetarian food items sold in the market, particularly sugar. the film also looks at the consequences of contaminated food for faith-based vegetarians:

Sugar Balloon Busted (Sikhnet)

Sugar Balloon Busted (Spiritualtube)

Sugar Balloon Busted (Keertan.tv)

This film seva was undertaken with the blessings of Sahib Sree Guroo Nanak Dev Jee Maharaj, by the kids in the summer of 2009.

What do we do about all the karah prasad in guru ghars then, if the sugar uses cow bones (bone char)?

Guru Pyareo,

With Sri Guru Maharaaj Ji's blessings, it is advisable to use vegan sugar which is not processed with bone char. In some cases, few sugar companies do not process ordinary sugar with bone char. You may want to check with the company selling sugar in your area about the method of processing. Most companies do not mention this very fact on the packet.

With Vaheguroo Ji's bleesings,

I have contacted food standards agency in UK in regards to this matter and recieved this response, Thanks.

"Thank you for your email concerning sugar being carbon filtered using bones. This is a very old fashioned method for sugar production and is not usually used today. We have spoken to both major sugar producers in the UK and Tate and Lyle discontinued this process many years ago and British Sugar have never used it. Small third world producers may use this process but most sugar on sale in the UK will be filtered by other means.

There is unlikely to be any health risk from bones, as they will have been incinerated to carbon."

The Sangat in the U.K. is blessed in this regard. in India also, the sugar refining methods appear not to be based on bone char. The problem is quite serious in the U.S. The Sangat in the U.S. can use vegan sugar.

Have you checked about the milk contamination? In the U.S., the milk contains Vitamin D3, derived from lanolin or fish fat.

With Satguroo Maharaj Jee's Blessings.
