J.R. Watkins has come out with a new product, vegetables based food colorings! The color comes from spices and vegetables.
If there’s one thing we avoid like the plague in this house, it’s food dyes (which are made from petroleum by the way). They cause all sorts of behavioral issues, especially in children. But, traditionally, natural dyes were super pricey (over $20 for 3 bottles). So, I’m super excited to see J.R. Watkins offering up 4 food coloring bottles (red, blue, green & yellow) for just $8.99 on Amazon!
Update: Reader Stephanie pointed out the ingredients in this product (it was not available on Amazon and the front of the package claims to be made 100% for vegetable juices and spices” Here are the ingredients so you can make an informed choice:”Red: Glycerin, invert sugar, water, vegetable juice, citric acid, potassium hydroxide. Yellow: Glycerin, water, polysorbate 80, turmeric. Green: Water, glycerin, polysorbate 80, trehalose, spirulina extract, turmeric, sodium citrate. Blue: Glycerin, water, trehalose, spirulina extract, sodium citrate.”
While it does contain some preservatives, it does not contain any artificial dyes (which are derived from petroleum).
Ingrediens: BLUE: glycerin, deionized water, vegetable juice and spirulina. RED: vegetable juice, glycerin, deionized water, turmeric. YELLOW: glycerin, turmeric and deionized water.
