Are you eating 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.

Keeping these chemicals in Macaroni and Cheese is an unnecessary potential risk.

Natural Mentor works to educate others about the benefits of eating real food and avoiding unnecessary chemicals. Although we would never buy Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, when we found about the risks of artificial coloring, we know that it’s a staple for millions of families around the world — many of whom can’t afford to buy other, more expensive products.

Kraft doesn’t use these chemicals in the United Kingdom due to wide health concerns, so we know it’s possible to do the same in the US. And as one of the largest food companies in the world, Kraft could set a precedent for other companies to do the same.
