We are always encountering some new food rave on our social sites while some are just culinary masterpieces there are some which are not really worth their money.
The liquid nitrogen infused is one of those dangerous trends.
The smoke vapor like chemical gas is added to cocktails icecream and whatnot to create an alluring effect to attract customers interest.
While it doesn’t add a hint of flavor it surely creates enough drama to make it your insta feeds.
Now, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has weighed in on liquid nitrogen–infused foods and drinks, and they’re urging people to avoid consuming anything prepared with this potentially dangerous substance.
The FDA warning, issued on Thursday, states that the agency has become aware of severe, and in some cases, life-threatening, injuries suffered by people who had just consumed a food or drink with liquid nitrogen.
“Liquid nitrogen, although non-toxic, can cause severe damage to skin and internal organs if mishandled or accidentally ingested due to the extremely low temperatures it can maintain,” the warning states. Injury can be caused by eating, drinking, or even simply handling the chemical.
Inhaling the vapor released by liquid nitrogen can cause breathing difficulty, especially for those who have asthma or allergies that lead to shortness of breath.
While they may seem like a fun-filled night out addition it can cause some serious harm to your health
And if you feel that you feel uneasy or unstable after consuming Liquid Nitrogen consult a Doctor immediately.
