A petition gathering great media is being signed across North America asking Kraft dinner to remove their yellow food colors from their macaroni and cheese products.
This has already been done in the United Kingdom who has switched to a natural food color containing turmeric and paprika which tastes and looks the same.Food dyes are derived from petroleum and have been linked to a ADHD in children as well as asthma, skin rashes and migraines.
There’s no nutritional benefit or taste to the color. Kraft’s response to the petition was that they are following government regulations stating the food dyes have gone through safety assessment. They have no plans to change what’s happening in North America and do offer products such as Smart kids and white cheddar that have no color. Still would appreciate dropping the food color!
