Is There Really Airplane Deicing Liquid in Beer

The Food Babe seems to have an obsession with demanding that certain chemicals must not be used in the manufacture of food simply because they have alternative industrial uses. Recently she has gone after something very close to my heart…beer. She tells us that “ingredients found in airplane de-icing liquids” are put in beer but is there any truth to this?

  1. Good stuff ol’ chap: but don’t assume that Americans aren’t as skeptical as Europeans. I can promise you they are terrified of pretty much anything they don’t understand and tend to knee-jerk reactions. This is a social construct that has assured Vani Hari a huge audience and a lot of luxurious vacations! :)
