Another Across The Pond Comparison -Nutri-Grain Bars

Here’s another example of artificial food dyes being used in foods in America but not in the United Kingdom. Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain bars…check out the comparisons in the video!

Here’s the American version and here’s the United Kingdom’s version.

We like that in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand they tell you the amount in percentages of real ingredients like strawberry.

Good thing the F.D.A. is starting to think about warning Americans about artificial colors.

Kellogg’s Pop Tarts in the USA vs. Kellogg’s Pop Tarts in the UK

Can you spot the differences??

We can! Amazing how the same company can make the same product in two different countries but one country, in this case the United Kingdom, requires stricter food standards so the product is much healthier than the product in the country without the strict food rules, in this case the United States of America.

Here is the United Kingdom Strawberry Pop Tart and here is the United States Strawberry Pop Tart.

Notice the differences in the food coloring. The American version allows for Yellow 6, Red 40 and Blue 1 but those controversial colors are banned in the United Kingdom so they use natural dyes. Yellow 6, Red 40 and Blue 1 are apart of a group of dyes that are known to cause ADHD, ADD and behavioral problems, check out your labels, you’ll be surprised how many products have those colors.
