Processed foods, even pickles, cake mixes, and “healthy” juices, often contain food dyes that make food appear fresher than it really is. Yes, you are getting tricked. Not that I think anyone should drink juice but if you do you should know that some berry juices contain ZERO percent fruit juice! The color comes solely from artificial coloring. So what’s the problem? Some food dyes are tied to serious health problems like ADHD, asthma, allergies, and cancer.
Solution: Buy organic foods. Organic standards ban the use of artificial food dyes. Organics are colored with food sources like turmeric, blueberries and beets. If you really want to take control of your health and avoid harmful additives. try making your own.
Here’s one of my favorite recipe for homemade pickles. I think you will find that they look and taste just fine without artificial coloring.
