Is Liquid Smoke Flavoring Carcinogenic?

Hi readers!

I use liquid smoke occasionally and have also recommended it in some of my recipes. So I thought you’d be interested in this short video by Dr. Michael Greger. I receive his emails and he offers many interesting articles and videos based on cutting edge research regarding nutritional issues. I suggest you visit his website and subscribe here: NutritionFacts.org

Watch this video to the end for the FULL picture. Enjoy!

Healthy trails,

  1. Hahah…..will have to share this with my parents the smoked salmon fans…..We can't actually get liquid smoke here so I usually sub with smoked paprika – not the same but best I can do. A little tamari too but having never had it I don't know what am missing really or what to sub to create a similar taste….

    I'm not even a big fan of the liquid smokes. I have purchased all the different "flavors" and they all taste the same to me. Smoked paprika has a much nicer, more natural taste and smell to me!

    Interesting article. I use Liquid Smoke occasionally and, based on Dr. Greger's article, am comfortable continuing its occasional use. I'll be sure to avoid the 3-bottle-a-day limit to avoid the potential carcinogenic effects! 😉

    Haha! Agreed, Susan. And to think I grew up eating bagels and lox! Hard to avoid on Long Island 😮

  5. Thank you for sharing this Helyn it was very interesting. I only use the liquid smoke once in a great while and now can do so without feeling worried about it.
