  • Diacetyle, an ingredient in popcorn responsible for its buttery flavor and smell may be linked Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Also found in margarines, snacks, candies
  • Best to buy organic popcorn, which I use.
  • Avoid Artificial Food Dyes, they are linked to behavioral problems, including ADHD
  • Synthetic food dyes are linked to disrupting children’s behaviors.  Dyes, as well as the preservative, sodium benzoate, adversely affect kids’ behavior.
  • Dyes are used constantly in foods to appeal to the consumer.
  • Dyes prevalent in sugary cereals, candies, sodas, snack foods.
  • Names of dyes:  Yellow 5, Red 40, Blue 1, Blue 2, Green 3, Orange B, Red 3, and Yellow 6
  • Basically, any time you see the name of a “color” followed by a “number,” it’s a dye.
  • AVOID dyes!
  • Most of Europe bans dyes.  In fact, our m&m’s candies are much brighter than Europe’s m&m’s because we allow for dyes.
  • Of course, not everyone is affected by dyes, because everyone is different.
  • Remember, Europe is much healthier than us, for a reason.
