Have Your Cake, But Don't Eat It, Too!

I am dumbfounded... why is Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS), an inexpensive detergent and makes mixtures foam well, an ingredient in a cake? This chemical has been theorized to cause harm when used in HBA items like soap and shampoo. According to the Material Safety Data Sheet for SLS, it is "MODERATELY TOXIC BY INGESTION" and "if ingested: if conscious, induce vomiting".
