Since I first mentioned this in a video, I’ve had several questions about the topic. Rather than send you into some heavy research, you’ll see my favorite infographic that gives you a quick overview of specific dyes and their “issues” at the bottom of this post.
Important: While many of these dyes (and preservatives, flavor enhancements and other food related chemicals) be labeled by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), it’s important to know that they are tested in small amounts WITH NO OTHER FACTORS INCLUDED. Now consider an abundance of GRAS chemicals we’re exposed to an a daily basis and that’s where the concern arises.
You can learn more about how this effects children by clicking the link below and I can vouch for it first hand! After cleaning up our diet, my youngest’s diagnosis of “significant to severe ADHD” was greatly improved!
