why is cheese yellow?

Standard

For chemistry class, our homework for this evening was to read an article about food dyes. I was very intrigued, of course, because it dealt with food. I had learned a little bit about the dangers of food dye from a post on my friend Sara’s blog. This article dives deeper, and I found it very interesting. I hope you’ll take a moment to read this article–it is always a good thing to be informed, especially when it comes to your health.

If you don’t like the length of the article, and want a brief summary, scroll to the last page, and read the last paragraph. SO true!

It was just a “food concept” day, with the food dyes article, and then this episode of 30 Minute Meals with Rachael Ray I briefly watched during lunch hour. Rachael talked about “wholesome eating.” Her idea was what I was trying to convey in yesterday’s post. Yes, wholesome eating may use butter and sugar, but in moderation, and they aren’t artificial ingredients. Wholesome eating also includes balanced, well-rounded meals created with natural ingredients. Wholesome eating= moderation + balance + natural. Just something to ponder :)

Have a great day!
