Did you know that foods such a pickles or jarred jalapeños contain the food coloring ‘Yellow 5’ ? Look for organic choices instead of buying the more popular brands because food coloring is extremely bad for your health!

Some specific effects of Yellow 5 are: allergies, hyperactivity, risk of cancer, migraines, fatigue, and anxiety. I always say that as a Vegan it is important to read labels to make sure there are no animal products being used, but you should also be educated on other ‘bad for you’ ingredients . . . and that applies to everyone!

Next time you go to the grocery store, pick up any jar of pickles or jalapeños and you will be surprised to see that Yellow 5 will be listed on every ingredients list. No good!
