Kraft Has Plans To Remove The Artificial Colorings From Their Mac & Cheese

Kraft-Yellow-Color

Orange and blue have become synonymous with the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese brand. The bright orange, derived from synthetic coloring, is now set to undergo some natural changes.

Beginning next year, Original Kraft Macaroni & Cheese will replace colors Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 with more natural ingredients. The brand said in a statement that they’ll be using paprika, annatto and turmeric in its Macaroni & Cheese to replicate that famous bright orange coloring.

The big change is set to take place in 2016 because Kraft will need the rest of the year to figure out a recipe that both keeps the color and doesn’t affect flavor.

Yellow 5 and Yellow 6, known as Tartrazine and Orange Yellow, are synthetic lemon dyes that are added to food for color. They’ve been known to cause asthma and hyperactivity in children.

Craving: Tropical Gummy Bears

Gummy bears are definitely one of my favorite candies to eat, the rare times I do have candy. Something about the multitude of artificial flavors being chewed up in your mouth just makes them fun to eat. Oh and if you lick the back and stuff them to someone they’ll stay there for a very long time. That’s always a fun joke to play on your friends, stick one to the back of their neck.

Craving: Peeps

Easter may have passed but there is never a bad time for a Peep. The marshmallowy goodness dunked in sugar and then packed next to 5 more of his closest friends in a box just big enough for you to store your pog collection afterward. I wonder if PETA approves of these even though they are marshmallow. You do get to bite a bunny’s head off and I don’t think they back that.
