Yellow Food Dye #5 and #6?
You probably know Kraft Macaroni and Cheese — the easy-to-make dinner in the blue box. It’s not exactly the healthiest food in the world, but for many families, it’s a cheap and quick option for a hot meal.
There’s a reason that Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is bright orange when it’s ready to eat. Kraft uses chemical colorings that serve no purpose for flavoring or nutrition. Those chemicals — known as Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 — have been linked by experts to serious health issues like asthma, skin rashes, migraines, and hyperactivity in children.
And while those chemicals are not used in other countries, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese sold in the United States still includes them just to make the food a brighter color.
Make sure your foods do not contain these harmful dyes – read labels!!
