Shoo Fly Dyes

New York, NY, November 2013—Kraft says it plans to remove artificial dyes from selected products as people increasingly reach for foods they feel are natural. Three macaroni and cheese varieties in kid-friendly shapes are at the top of the list for change. The company said it plans to replace artificial dyes with spices such as paprika for coloring. The change doesn't affect Kraft's plain elbow-shaped macaroni and cheese with "original flavor."

The packaged-food company denies the change was driven by a petition on Change.org calling for the removal of artificial dyes from its flagship mac-n-cheese kits. That petition, which was posted in March, had more than 348,000 signatures on Thursday.

Trans-Fats Out, Soybeans in
Health

Columbia, Missouri, November 2013—Officials from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced recently that they were ruling trans-fats as unsafe in food.

This determination could ultimately lead to a universal ban of trans-fats in baked goods and many other foods, such as icings and fried foods. Researchers at the University of Missouri have been working for years to create healthy alternatives to trans-fats. Now they say they have found a way to create a soybean oil that has no trans-fats.

A message from the editors of Healthy Newspaper.

Over the years, we’ve become pretty knowledgeable about health & wellness, but rarely endorse products.

But today we want to do just that—of a truly revolutionary product.

It comes from an ancient source: The Moringa Tree.

Dating to biblical times and valued for its medicinal properties, scientists at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently declared the Moringa to be the “most nutritious botanical” they had ever studied.

As we said earlier, we don’t normally endorse products. But this one is different: Entirely different.

In a nutshell, would you consider taking a new health product that…
  • Was derived naturally and directly from the source? 
  • Was mentioned by the National Institutes of Health to be the most “nutritious botanical” they had ever studied?
  • Is already recognized as the most dense, natural botanical in the world?
  • Contains natural proteins, minerals, amino acids, anti-inflammatories, antioxidants and anthocyanins far beyond that of most food-based plants?

Kiss My Face, Part III

Gardiner, New York, November 2013—A couple of years back (May and November 2011 to be exact,) we published two articles about the company we’re about to discuss. They do good work and have decent products—so we think they’re worth at least three articles. Here goes.

When Bob MacLeod and Steve Byckiewicz first spotted a barrel filled with big, ugly olive oil bar soaps, they hadn’t the faintest idea that they would form the building blocks of a leading natural personal care brand that would be distributed around the globe.

Washington, DC, November 2013—The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) is leading an initiative to protect and improve the global food supply. So far, they have 14 co-founding partners.

The Global Food Traceability Center officially launched in July at the 2013 IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo in Chicago. It serves as an authoritative, scientific, and unbiased source for food traceability. Previously, there was no single entity, public or private, that brought together key stakeholders in the agri-food system. It’s a new collaboration bent on providing timely product tracing solutions.
