Kraft Mac & Cheese Warning Label

Leave a comment

mac-cheeseLast week the New York Times newspaper published a Kraft warning label found in the U.K. on an imported U.S. box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

The label has two warnings, which read:

Warning #1: This Product May Cause Adverse Effects On Activity And Attention In Children. (This warning label is required because The US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese has artificial food dyes yellow #5 and yellow #6, which are proven to be linked to hyperactivity in children.)

Warning #2: GMO Declaration: Made from genetically modified wheat. May contain GMO. (This warning label is required because the US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese contains GMOs.)

While Kraft denies it uses GMOs in its products, it is obvious and apparent that there are serious concerns with the ingredients in Kraft Mac & Cheese, especially for our children on the autistic spectrum. While Corban has been gluten- and casein-free (as well as free from artificial dyes, flavors, and sweeteners) for several months now, this product isn’t healthy for anyone to consume. I call this a victory in food awareness!
