I went through my pantry and refrigerator to see what we have with artificial colors. I was pleased to find just a few items with artificial coloring, but I was surprised at what did have artificial coloring. I expected only to find it in neon blue or bright red food, but it was in some fairly bland colored foods. Kraft Light Done Right Zesty Italian dressing has Yellow 5 and Yellow 6; Brach's Autumn Mix candy corn (bought during a weak moment a few days ago) has Yellow 6, Yellow 6 Lake, Red 40, Red 40 Lake, Red 3, Yellow 5, Blue1 AND Blue 2 Lake. Yikes that's a lot! The biggest surprise for me was Blue 1 in a bag of mini marshmallows!
So now in addition to checking labels and not buying anything with hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup, I am going not buy anything with artificial coloring.
Check your cupboards to see what artificial colors are hanging out in your home!
