Food Coloring Conundrum
Transcript of Food Coloring Conundrum
Who is involved?
-Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
-The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
-Joel Nigg (OHSU)
-Bernard Weiss (University of Rochester)
Kraft plans to replace the unnatural yellow dye in its macaroni and cheese by 2016.
Some scientists think food dye, or coloring, is harmful.
The FDA thinks unnatural food colorings are safe
Kraft is replacing the unnatural food colorings in their Macaroni and Cheese because customers want healthier foods. Scientists like Bernard Weiss and Joel Nigg think that food coloring can cause a hyperactivity disorder called ADHD in some children.
What is ADHD?
I think companies that use unnatural dyes should be more cautious and try to prove that unnatural dyes are safe. If Kraft replaces their unnatural dyes by 2016, they will have more customers because their macaroni and cheese will be healthier. I also think that if food dye is not used, less children will get ADHD. Parents should be aware of what their kids are eating.
Thanks for Watching!
These are the opinions of the FDA and two scientists: Joel Nigg and Bernard Weiss.
FDA: Food dyes are not harmful.
Joel Nigg and Bernard Weiss: Food dyes may be harmful, may also cause ADHD.
Joel Nigg: Food dyes have an effect on children, food companies that use food dyes should put warning labels on their products.
Bernard Weiss: Food companies should prove that dyes are safe, more studies on food coloring are needed.
