That coloring is one of the ingredients I have to be careful with on my kid.....her body rejects caramel 4-MI coloring. She will get loose poopies and cranky to outright mean when she has too much of it...dyes will also do this to her.
I cant eat as healthy as I would like as the healthy stuff cost 3 times what other stuff cost but Ted Nugent said in one interview(I believe it was him, was a while back) something that I believe to be 100% true.....If you cant read the ingredient with ease or without stuttering its a sure bet it shouldn't go into your body. In this case, Im saying its a sure bet we should stay away from 4-methylimidazole....no label should take the whole side of the container listing these hard to say ingredients either....:-/
Uh oh, then I am screws cause I drink a coke every day. Why do these companies put coloring in our food? Why don't they just skip it and let us eat or drink it in their natural color.
Studies have proven sales drop dramatically when color is removed from the product and its packaging but what they can do is use natural colors, Just about every color out there can be produced naturally. I buy yummy earth candy http://yummyearth.com/ for my kid and its very colorful and tatse great, she will pick one of their lolly pops up before any other candy and it actually has vitamins in it because they use real fruit juice to color it. Ocean spray makes a fruit snack that is just as colorful and yummy as fruit roll up brands. The list goes on and on with products that taste just as good and they use carrot juice, beets pomegranate etc to color the stuff and its good!!! But cost you twice as much.
