Polysorbate 80 is a golden-colored, gelatinous substance that can be found in anything from food to cosmetics to vaccines.

Which Foods Contain Polysorbate 80?

Polysorbate 80 acts as an emulsifier in food. An emulsified binds ingredients together to prevent them from separating. It is most commonly used in the following foods:

Ice Cream

Whipped Cream

Non-Dairy Creamer

Dessert Toppings

Chewing Gum

Gelatin Desserts



This substance can be found in virtually any processed food, however. It is very important to become a label reader to successfully avoid this additive. Other names you may find this ingredient under are:

Polyoxyethylene (80) sorbitan monooleate

(x)-sorbitan mono-9-octadecenoate poly (oxy-1,2 ethanediyl)

Tween 80

POE (80) sorbitan monooleate


What Are the Non-Food Sources of Polysorbate 80?

Cosmetics – used as a solubilizer. A solubilizer helps dissolve ingredients that do not easily dissolve. This makes the make-up look creamier and more attractive.

Vaccines – vaccines such as the HPV vaccine, Gardasil, also contain this dangerous additive.

Vitamins and Supplements – may be used as a preservative

Cancer Drug – it has also been used as a drug to treat cancer and kidney failure with devastating side effects.

What are the Side Effects of Polysorbate 80?

This versatile substance can cause a host of terrible side effects ranging from mild to severe. Side effects include, but are not limited to:

Allergic Reaction – sneezing, coughing, swelling, wheezing, shortness of breath, skin rashes, itching and pain.

Gastrointestinal Problems – nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

Heart/Circulatory Problems – abnormal heart rhythm, heart attack, stroke

Fertility Problems – infertility in women, especially those who have taken vaccines containing polysorbate 80, such as the HPV vaccine, Gardasil

Tumor Growth and Cancer

If you or somebody you know suffers from strange symptoms they cannot put their finger on, the cause may be a reaction to polysorbate 80. Learn more about other common food additives that may be causing mystery symptoms by reading my articles, ” Why You’re Still Not Losing Weight “, about the dangers of high fructose corn syrup, ” Sweet Poison in Your Food “, discussing the side effects of aspartame and ” Your Breakfast Cereal is Killing You ” , a look at five common food additives that cause severe reactions.

Again, it’s important to become a label reader and replace dead processed foods with healthy, nutritious food that can offer a world of good health!
