I am sure that many of you health-conscious, crunchy readers will find it odd that I am bothering to write a post about why food coloring is bad.
Last Friday when I picked up my son from kindergarten, he met me with red stained teeth and a red hand holding a plate with two neon red ladybug cupcakes from a classmate’s birthday celebration.
Surely every parent (at least the ones in our progressive part of Los Angeles) knows that food coloring is particularly HORRIBLE for kids.  Or maybe not. Did you know that European lawmakers now require food with artificial colors to be labeled with a warning stating the food “may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children”? Because of these measures, many European manufacturers are opting for more natural dyes over the chemical dyes, but here in the U.S. As a mom to a typical, active 6 year old boy, the last thing I want is to risk adding anything that might tip the hyperactivity scale. In 2010, The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) published a detailed report of the link of artificial food dyes to hyperactivity, allergy, and cancer.
While studies and evidence can always be refuted, doesn’t it make simple sense to skip the unnecessary artificial colors to avoid these risks?
The human mind is designed to be drawn to colors that indicate probable nutritional content of food. As the FDA points out, “Color additives are now recognized as an important part of practically all processed foods we eat.
When food is artificially colored, the mind is tricked into thinking that otherwise unappealing items will be nourishing. Natural dyes have been around for for thousands of years, and can add some extra festivity to food on special occasions without all the toxic confusion.
When making natural food coloring, expect that you’re not going to get the same freakishly saturated colors as you would from the artificial stuff. For an extra dark color, you may want to start with a light, chocolate based cake or frosting. Do you think the FDA should mandate labeling food that contains artificial coloring and other known toxins?
I occasionally bake cakes and have been using Wilton’s (artificial) food coloring gels for years. Hi Karen – I think experimentation with natural coloring would be well worth the effort! Anyway, he brought home a green bagel from school for St Patty’s Day and while I normally toss food items given to him at school (usually candy believe it or not), he was very curious about this bagel. Stacy – You might like reading about a school science project done by a 6th grade boy that follows the Feingold Program! Yes, the skin is the largest organ in the body and the red dye can be absorbed which can lead to reactions such as in behavior.
When my daughter went to see her pediatrician, she was specially banned from red 40 as well 3 other as it was causing bowel obstructions from inhibiting the smooth muscle which in turned caused leaky gut syndrome. I obviously do not know the teacher you are referring to, but I am very aware of the commitment teachers have to their students. Artificial food dyes are one of the most infuriating ingredients that I have become aware of since starting our healthy food journey. There are currently seven artificial food dyes approved for consumption in the United States. The prevalence of childhood ADHD raises the possibility of a widespread risk factor like artificial dyes. In the early 1970s, research conducted by Dr. In one study (source 4) preschool-aged children were fed a diet with no artificial food dyes and benzoate preservatives (a common preservative in many processed foods) for 4 weeks. The second study (source 5) expanded on the first study and also looked at older children. As in the previous study, children were placed on an elimination diet and then tested using double-blind techniques for their behavior to a drink containing artificial food colors and preservatives. The results of these two studies do suggest that synthetic food dyes can contribute to hyperactive behavior in some children. Yes, schools and daycare make it very hard to completely eliminate processed foods and artificial food dyes. Carmine -Also known as cochineal, this dye has been used for centuries, is very bright and is shelf stable.
Enter a new solution from a company called LycoRed, which claims to have solved the shortcoming of the above colorings. According to LycoRed, they use a patented process to produce an antioxidant-rich lycopene compound from California-grown, non-GMO tomatoes. Lycored has been in business for about 15 years creating red and orange hues from tomatoes and carrots.
For manufacturers that use Red #40, this natural solution is not an option because it is too expensive.

You know I have no issue consuming a crushed beetle, and I always wonder how is it that in our minds, we are able to consume a dead cow, medium rare, with it’s blood gushing, or chicken, or fish, people always freak out when they hear bugs, to me this is more natural than Chemicals dye. I agree with a lot of these comments but I hate to break it to the vegetarians out there, but when big machines go through wheat fields do u think they let those little buggies chillin on the leaves scurry away? But that’s relatively unavoidable (even a home garden would likely involve some amount of bug elimination or consumption). Learn about the most common problems parents report about red dye 40 and the effects on behavior when eliminating this from a child's diet. The need to use unnatural substances to give the appearance of something natural is a strange concept indeed.
Currently, although some links have been made to increased hyperactivity and food additives, the FDA continues to drag their feet by still maintaining their stance that the results of such findings are inconclusive. Interestingly, five of the allowed colors in the USA were linked to ADHD, Cancer and other health conditions in Europe.
Known health effects: causes hyperactivity, chromosomal damage, and has been linked to allergic reactions and migraine headaches. Sunset Yellow is often found in orange sodas, orange jelly, marzipan, Swiss rolls, apricot jam, citrus marmalade, lemon curd, sweets, hot chocolate mix and packet soups, trifle mix, breadcrumbs, snack chips, shelf fresh noodles, cheese sauce mixes as well as chocolates such as Cadbury Creme Egg.
Known health effects: causes hyperactivity, cancer and is linked to stomach upsets and swelling of the skin.
Can be found in soft drinks, candy, children’s medications, cereal, beverages, snacks, gelatin desserts, baked goods, ice cream.


Can be found in soft drinks, bakery products, cereals, candy, drink powders, mint-flavored jelly, frozen desserts, pet foods, kidney tests and for testing milk. Known health effects: causes hyperactivity, asthma, heart issues and may bring on allergic reactions. Can be found in soft drinks, gelatin desserts, ice cream, drink powders, candy, bakery products, cereals, feta cheese, dairy products and pudding.
So, with estimated users of ADHD drugs in the multi-millions in both children and adults, shouldn’t the question be…what is causing this behavior rather than simply administering dangerous drugs? Isn’t it logical that an artificial substance such as food coloring along with preservatives, processing, and ridiculously high amounts of sugar (not to mention high corn fructose in practically every product sold) could possibly have a negative effect on our health? That unprocessed natural and organic whole foods free of preservatives, additives and chemicals are the only foods we should be eating in order to be healthy and to live a long energetic life!
This was in response to a recent large study linking food dyes and other preservatives to hyperactivity in children.
Red peppers, orange egg yolks (from pasture raised hens), yellow butter (from grassfed cows), green spinach, blueberries, etc all beckon to be eaten.
I wish all parents would read it and that all parents were as aware of the danger of artificial dyes, etc. So all dyes are bad but in addition to the dyes, artificial flavorings (such as vanillin) and the preservativaes BHA, BHT & TBHQ also come from petroleum!
My son did not have things artificial dyes, etc and while I know, he had them now and then, he avoided them most all the time, still does.
I’d love for the community to be able to answer you and for other moms to also see the answers given. Parents think gatorade is a healthy mineral sports drink and then when they bring in the snack for the team…almost all artificial foods with artificial colors and dyes. They will taste soooo much better and your family with still get to eat all their favorites! This is because they serve no purpose except to make food look appetizing. Artificial food dyes are derived from coal tar and petroleum which are not ingredients that I want to be eating. They had two groups of rats: one that ate a high dose of food dye and one that ate a low dose of food dye. Benjamin Feingold found that when hyperactive children were given a diet free of artificial food additives and dyes, symptoms of hyperactivity were reduced. The ingestion of synthetic food colors caused an increase in a measure of global hyperactivity.
It is important to note that while intake of synthetic dyes and preservatives statistically increased hyperactivity, the investigators also reported substantial variability in the responses of children to artificial dye drink. The effects of a double blind, placebo controlled, artificial food colourings and benzoate preservative challenge on hyperactivity in a general population sample of preschool children. I figure that if I can do my best to make sure my kids only eat real food at home, then I just have to let go of some of the control about what they eat away from the house.
We eat with our eyes, and when we see a rich red strawberry, a Red Delicious apple, or other foods draped in red, we want want them! The company claims that production levels have more than doubled in recent months to meet the growing demand. It is often used as a substitute for carmine in various food applications and can provide the same red shades and colors as carmine.
An opened pack should be resealed, kept out of direct sunlight, stored at 4 degrees Celsius and used as soon as possible. Tomat-O-Red has been used for coloring in many commercial products, for example soft drinks, juices, alcoholic beverages, confectionery, chewing gums, sauces, cake icings, surimi for meat analogues and many more.
But for companies like Starbucks, that saw a strawberry frap fiasco a few months ago over the use of carmine as a coloring, LycoRed could be the solution. Artificial colors are common food additives and unfortunately, we live in a world where it is nearly impossible to find food without 10-20 food additives that we know nothing about. Of course he is older now, I believe 13 years old, and is able to eat foods with the dye and does not seem to have any problems now.
Well, the natural and alternative health advocates have long known that these artificial (synthetic) food additives have had a negative effect on human health. The link was made in a study done by Southampton University, which found these dyes to cause elementary school aged children to become distracted, failing computer attention tests. Another artificial color, Red 3, is still in commercial use despite the fact that the FDA has identified it as a carcinogen. Yes, it is so frustrating to hear parents complain about their child’s behavior, health issues and doctor appointments as they feed them pre-packaged foods and snacks.
I was merely expressing shock that there food dyes are still used as a norm by many when it is so obviously bad for our children. It definitely creates a bright red color, so you wouldn’t have been able to tell on sight.
They can also be found in some surprising places like yogurt, vitamins, medicine, cereal, and most packaged foods. They found that the rats in the high dose food dye group showed significant increases in serum creatinine and albumin compared to control group.
Some clinical studies confirmed these findings, but over the past couple of decades the results have been mixed and inconclusive  As a result, research on the role of food dye and its effects on ADHD slowed.
The amount of food dyes and preservatives in the drink was not excessive in any way and would be comparable to what a child would normally consume in a day.
The intake of food dyes had negative effects in some children,and in others they found no effects. There are a lot of natural dyes out there that can be used to brighten food if you are cooking.
The annual market for lycopenes is $60-80 million dollars a year, according to the company. Tomat-O-Red does need to be refrigerated before opening and being added to food and beverages. Asides from the yuck factor, tomato extract works better for vegetarians, vegans, and people who keep halal or kosher (no bugs allowed).
All marks, brands and names belong to the respective companies and manufacturers and are used solely to identify the companies and products. Being that my son has so many allergies, we have adjusted to giving him very plain food in order to limit the chances of an additive that may cause an allergic reaction.


However, this is only one of many incidences that show the importance of knowing what you are eating and how it may affect you or your childa€™s behavior.One possible reason for the effect red dye has on behavior may be that the child has a sensory processing disorder. Red 40 and Yellow 6 (a dye that causes mild to severe hypersensitivity reactions in some people). Perhaps you already know of it, but for the benefit of your readers, I’d like to plus a support group that shows families how to avoid these dyes and how to buy foods free of them.
Even though there are natural alternatives, companies like to save money by using these artificial dyes. A person’s kidneys filter creatinine from the blood and remove it from the body during urination. There has been a renewed effort to study the connection between ADHD and artificial food dyes due to many anecdotal findings.
The results of the psychologists’ ratings did not differ based on the dietary conditions. I figure that as long as they get healthy breakfast and dinner at home that I will not worry too much about it. Used as directed, once formulated in the products, it does not require refrigeration, although some of the products that use Tomat-O-Red  might.  For example, it can be used in smoothies that require refrigeration, and it can be used to color cakes and confectionary products, which do not.
What is the difference between that and dead animals (meat?) Many of the things that we eat could be taken to an extreme. For many parents this may not be a common practice, but for parents of children on a diet for ADHD it is more commonly known to be removed from the child's diet. This particular disorder can cause a child to be oversensitive to artificial colors, which excite the brain.
And a strawberry sundae from McDonald’s is solely strawberries in Britain, but here, petroleum-based Red 40 — which is the most-used dye — gives the sundae its hue.
I’m also curious why the GMOs that were most likely in the cupcake (and have been attributed to the same issues you mentioned) aren’t a concern at all?
The problem is that artificial food coloring has been linked to many health problems, including cancer and ADHD.
People with poorly functioning kidneys generally develop increased creatinine levels in the blood.
However, the parents reported significant reductions in hyperactive behavior when children were placed on the elimination diet, and significantly greater increases in hyperactive behavior when children consumed the drink with dyes and preservatives than with the children who received the placebo drink. Blueberry juice, carrot juice, paprika, grape skin extract, beet juice, purple sweet potato, and strawberries are some good alternatives.
Reading food labels is one of the best things you can possibly do to be aware of what your child is actually ingesting. Kraft’s macaroni and cheese was recently under fire for using yellow dyes 5 and 6 in the U.S. You don’t have to change the menus in your house or the brownies you make, just the ingredients. Over the past 50 years, daily per capita intake of these dyes has increased fivefold (sources 1 and 2). Eating these fake substances are all risk, no benefit. There are still many studies that have not been done to determine the safety of these compounds in our bodies.
Pretty much any produce that you can juice, could be used in recipes to tint the food a certain color.
The dye can be found in hundreds of food items without the food actually being the color red; some foods include Doritos, Twinkies, chocolate cake mix, vanilla frosting, croissants and even non-organic red apples (gotta look good right?).
Things can be made (and bought) that look as junky as the other stuff – you just learn what to buy or make. As far as processed foods, the ingredients listed in the above infographic are natural dyes. Although it reportedly is difficult to conduct an actual study on the effect it may have on behavior, by simply removing it from onea€™s diet for at least two weeks, you should be able to know whether there is a change. By avoiding processed foods, you will be avoiding the vast majority of these artificial food dyes which have no purpose except to please your eyes. Simply observing any differences in your child or by keeping a journal of what your child eats and tracking any behavioral difficulties you encounter will help.
Of course the use of behavior interventions for child behavior problems in addition to removing red dye 40 is also recommended.I am a person that prefers to try all other options before assuming that the child should be placed on medication.
There were several more that have been approved but are currently delisted and banned due to adverse effects.
Betanin is extracted from beets and Pandan is made from Pandanus amaryllifolius which is a tropical plant and butterfly pea is from Clitoria ternatea, a flowering plant. If there as a better option, such as a change in diet, well then I would rather try that first. Only time will tell which of these currently used dyes will be next to be banned based on adverse effects. I have heard of parents being guilt tripped by teachers or psychiatrists stating that their child has a condition that needs to be treated with medication and if your child had diabetes you wouldna€™t deprive them of the medication needed would you? The risks of artificial dyes are too numerous just for the benefit that our food looks pretty. However, even with diabetes there have been people that have been able to control it by changing their diet, exercising to lose weight, and resulted in not needing medication. Natural colorings can make food looks just as appetizing, it is just more expensive for the food companies.
These big industrial food companies will not voluntarily stop using artificial dyes until they are banned in the United States (They are actually not used in many other countries). I say absolutely, see if it makes a difference, and if not at least you can say you ruled out another option. For now, check all ingredient labels and avoid synthetic food dyes for the health of yourself and your kids.
