Does Artificial Food Coloring = Crushed Up Bugs?

Posted January 5, 2011 by admin

YES, chances are that if you are eating anything that is labeled “Artificial Food Coloring” or “Color Added” on the label of a product, you are probably ingesting crushed up bugs! The FDA does not require that companies post the ingredients of what makes the colors artificial. Crushed Beetles = Red Dye. Specifically the Cochineal beetle.

This definitely isn’t going to hurt you as there are many countries that eat bugs as a delicacy, but doesn’t it stop to make you think about what you are putting in your body?
