Food and Travel Nation IS GELLAN GUM POND SLIME IN YOUR FOOD?
Things That Make You Go HMMM
Broadcast Date:  2/5/22

According to lore, Gellan Gum is a natural substance that was found in a pond in Pennsylvania.  Then how did it find its way into the hands of a drug company?  And how did it find its way into hundreds of food products on grocery store shelves?

No studies to date, that we are aware of, tested the effects of this pharmaceutical chemical on the gut flora in people. We have no idea how this substance affects intestinal bacteria or the walls of the colon.

About the show:  Food And Travel Nation with Elizabeth Dougherty is the fusion of food and travel. This fresh, compelling nationally-syndicated weekend program includes information for homesteading, traveling, gardening, taste tests, and in a twist, listeners hear what restaurant servers say about customers.

I taught cooking classes, and served as a personal chef for individuals and small parties.  I consulted for restaurants and other food service organizations in menu development as well as cost saving measures. As a freelance writer, I have written hundreds of articles for many different publications.  I created and developed the popular “Food and Travel Nation” page on Facebook.

In 2010, I created a light-hearted, entertaining, informative radio program, “Food Nation Radio”.  It’s a mix of everything FOOD, including guest interviews, recipes and food/restaurant related features.

With previous memberships in the International Association of Culinary Professionals, the James Beard Foundation and National Restaurant Association, I have tried to keep abreast of the current and ever-changing trends in the culinary world.
