Bug Juice

Amanda Congdon vlogged this story about dye made from bugs in some beverages the other day. After tracking down (an embarrassing oversite of her links to her show-notes) the story, I did some further investigating, which may be of interest. I don't eat things with faces or parents for reasons of my own; but, increasingly I am also weary of pesticides. Eating dye pressed from a crop of insects seems like a substantial way to injest some more "safe" amounts of carcinogenic pesticides. Luckily the product lists (from FoodFacts.com) are short:


Cochineal


Cochineal Extract

mmm. enjoy!
