Your Morning Cereal Is About To Get A LOT Less Colorful! General Mills Is Removing All Artificial Ingredients INCLUDING Dyes!

| Filed under: FoodHealthStuff 4 Kidz

no title

No more Blue Moons and Purple Horseshoes?!

On Monday, General Mills announced that it will remove all artificial colors and flavors from its cereals!

Beginning with popular cereals like Trix, Cocoa Puffs and Reese's Puffs, the cereal titan expects 90 percent of its cereal to go natural by the end of 2016, and the remaining 10 percent to be free of artificial colors and flavors by 2017!

This decision seems to be following the trend that customers have been growing wary of processed foods, resulting in many food companies systematically ridding their products of ingredients that don't look natural.

Jim Murphy, president of General Mills U.S. cereal business, explained that customers don't want labels full of "colors with numbers and ingredients you can't pronounce." He explained:

"Consumers increasingly want the ingredient list for their cereal to look like what they pull out of their pantry."

We can expect colors like Red 40, Yellow 6, Blue 1 and other artificial dyes common in some cereals to be replaced by colors made from spices and fruit and vegetable juice concentrates!

Though removing artificial flavors isn't that easy for certain marshmallow-filled cereals like Lucky Charms and Count Chocula. Marshmallows are more difficult to reformulate the colors without changing the taste, texture, and appearance!

Let's hope the cereal company can keep their products just as colorful and tasty without any artificial ingredients.

If not, those kids might not be after those Lucky Charms for long!

Is Nutella bad for the environment???

Whether it's taking shorter showers or using energy efficient light bulbs, people are usually willing to make small changes to help save the environment!

But France's ecology minister might be asking a bit too much of humankind as she's urging people to STOP buying Nutella!

That's right! In a recent interview on Monday, Ségolène Royal claimed that people should avoid buying their favorite chocolate hazelnut spread because it contains the ingredient palm oil.

If you're wondering why that's such a big deal, it's because trees are now being replaced with oil palms to create more Nutella, which is contributing to deforestation in certain areas.

Ferrero, the company that creates Nutella, did NOT take long to respond to these claims as they released a statement on Tuesday saying they

Burger King is making Pretty Patties!!! Sort of...

Well the mad scientists have apparently decided to take it a step further as they are now offering a burger with RED buns and cheese!

Meet the Aka Burger! Served with either Samurai Chicken or Samurai Beef, this diabolical creation gets its bright red glow by simply using tomato powder, which sounds a lot less harmless than it looks!

But it also comes topped with an "angry" red sauce, which is just a mixture of miso paste and chili sauce!

If you're wondering when you can get your hands on one of these bad boys, they'll start rolling out on July 3rd! BUT they'll only be available in Japan! Sorry adventurous eaters of the world!

Still we have to ask, would you eat one of these things??
