European ban for six food additives?
This just in:
The UK’ Foods Standard Agency has called for a European-wide ban on six artificial food colourings:
The FSA wants the European Union to enact legislation to ban the e number additives and, in the meantime, has advocated that food manufacturers stop using the additives voluntarily.
Here’s what the FSA says should be banned:
Sunset yellow (E110) – Colouring found in squashes
Carmoisine (E122) – Red colouring in jellies
Tartrazine (E102) – New colouring in lollies, fizzy drinks
Ponceau 4R (E124) – Red colouring
Quinoline yellow (E104) – Food colouring
Allura red AC (E129) – Orange/red food dye
