DO SOME Skinny SciencePRODUCTS CONTAIN SILICON DIOXIDE?
Dioxide is used in Nuvo Gene Tea™ and other Skinny Science®
products in very small amounts as an anti-caking agent.
Dioxide keeps ingredients from getting too sticky, and helps
protect products from absorbing moisture.
ingredients found in Skinny Science® products, such as B-Sweet
are hygroscopic, meaning they absorb water from the air, which
Dioxide helps prevent B-Sweet and other Skinny Science
products from caking-up.
IS SILICON DIOXIDE?
is an element found naturally in foods in the form of silicon
dioxide (SiO2), and is an indispensable part of the food we
is never present in its original or free form, and thus, it
commonly occurs as silicon dioxide (silica).
dioxide is found in higher amounts in plant based foods.
In cereal, the SiO2 content is very high. Levels of SiO2 are
comparatively less in foods that are derived from animal sources.
Natural foods contain various amounts of SiO2, for example:
Along with calcium and vitamins, Silicon Dioxide is equally
important for proper bone growth, strength and density. Deficiency
of silicon can cause osteoarthritis and arthritis.
fruits contain significant levels of Silicon Dioxide, as silicon
occurs naturally in fruits. Fruits considered high in silicon
include apples, oranges, cherries, grapes, plums, and raisins.
also contain silicon, especially green veggies, such as beans
and peas, cucumber, and celery.
grains and nuts (highest levels are found in peanuts and almonds)
contain considerable amounts of silicon, as do raw oats, barley,
natural drinking water also contains Silicon Dioxide (silicic
