    I complain about food coloring regularly. Yes, eating whole fresh foods takes care of it…mostly. I’m actually allergic to Yellow #5 AKA tartrazine. It’s in obvious places such as Mtn. Dew (which, thankfully I never liked) and yellow Laffy Taffy or Starburst candies, etc. But, I have found it in places that I didn’t think it would be…dressings, baked goods (and a lot of them), sauces. Yes, making your own avoids the additives, but ain’t nobody got time for that. Haha. I’ve picked up loaves of bread at the bakery and had to put them back on the shelf because of the dye. I’ve complained to big companies such as Kraft that they should remove them. More companies have been omitting them and using fruit/veg based dye, but wow…America has a long way to go. I’m pretty sure I’ve read that tartrazine is banned in most of Europe.
