Kraft: Stop Using Dangerous Food Dyes in Our Mac & Cheese

Hi there, this is Vani Hari from Food Babe. I recently discovered that several American products are using harmful additives that are not used – and in some cases banned – in other countries. One of those products is an iconic staple that almost every American, us included, has had at one time or another: Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in the US contains the artificial food dyes Yellow 5 and Yellow 6. These unnecessary – yet potentially harmful - dyes are not in Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in other countries, including the UK, because they were removed due to consumer outcry. Kraft reformulated their product for the UK, but not for their fellow American citizens. It’s time we demand the same here in the US! Note: Yellow 5 (labeled asTartrazine) is also used in these products in Canada, and I'm sure they don't want to have it in their food either! That's why I'm petitioning Kraft to remove all dangerous artificial food dyes
 from their line of macaroni and cheese. Here are the reasons I'm asking Kraft to remove Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 from their Macaroni and Cheese. Artificial food dyes... - Are man-made in a lab with chemicals derived from petroleum (a crude oil product, which also happens to be used in gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt, and tar). - Require a warning label in other countries outside the US. - Have been banned in countries like Norway and Austria (and are being phased out in the UK). - Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 are contaminated with known carcinogens (a.k.a. an agent directly involved in causing cancer). - Cause an increase in hyperactivity in children. - Have a negative impact on children’s ability to learn. - Have been linked to long-term health problems such as asthma, skin rashes, and migraines. - Add absolutely no nutritional value to the foods we are eating and are solely used for aesthetic purposes only. To prove this last point I personally tested both the US and UK versions of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and found virtually no difference in color or taste (see the video above). I grew up eating this product, and it’s available at almost every grocery store across the country. Everyone deserves the same safer version that our friends get overseas!  Kraft Foods is the largest food company headquartered in the United States. If Kraft changes their Macaroni and Cheese, I know this could inspire other food companies across the US to finally eliminate dangerous artificial food dyes once and for all. Join me now and sign this petition.  Together we can make a difference.

Turrón @Suchard_es: utilizad chocolate de Comercio Justo #elCacaodeSuchard

“En estas Navidades, turrón de chocolate; en estas Navidades, turrón de Suchard”. ¿Quién no conoce esta canción? Si como yo eres fan del turrón de chocolate Suchard, ayúdame a hacerlo aún mejor. Existen muchos informes sobre las penosas condiciones de trabajo de las personas que cultivan y producen el cacao que compran las grandes compañías: trabajo infantil, trabajo forzado, explotación... Yo no quiero contribuir con mi dinero a estos abusos, y quiero poder comprar turrón de Suchard estando segura de que tratan bien a las personas que lo producen. Pidámosle a Suchard que fabrique su turrón con cacao de Comercio Justo. Así podremos disfrutarlo todavía más, sabiendo que cuando lo compramos estamos garantizando unas condiciones de trabajo dignas para las personas que producen el cacao en África y otros lugares. ¡Firma ahora esta petición y une tu voz a la mía! Si todos enviamos esta carta a Suchard, lograremos que el turrón que comamos las próximas navidades sea mucho mejor. Los niños y los trabajadores son obligados a realizar largas jornadas recogiendo y procesando la fruta del cacao. De acuerdo con diversos informes del Instituto de Agricultura Tropical, más de 284.000 niños de entre 9 y 12 años trabajan en granjas de cacao en África Occidental en condiciones peligrosas. De entre estos, más de 12.000 podrían encontrarse trabajando en condiciones de esclavitud, traídos de países como Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin y Togo. Si Suchard garantizara en su etiquetado que su cacao proviene del comercio justo, estaría garantizando que está pagando a los campesinos un salario digno, ofreciendo un precio mínimo por sus productos y certificando que en su elaboración no se ha empleado trabajo infantil o trabajos forzados.

Kraft a Better BOCA and Ditch Dairy!

As a staple at cookouts, on camping trips, and on restaurant menus nationwide, Kraft Heinz’ BOCA brand has long been a household name at the forefront of the meatless market. But while other veggie burger brands have embraced the soaring demand for dairy-free dining in recent years, the majority of the BOCA burgers and bowls lining grocery store shelves still contain unhealthy, cruelly produced cow’s milk.In 2009, BOCA took a major, promising step forward by committing to dropping all eggs from its line after hearing from tens of thousands of consumers who were hungry for fully plant-based burgers through a campaign by Compassion Over Killing (now known as Animal Outlook) and other organizations. Yet today, although BOCA has recognized that “consumers are increasingly looking for plant-based options,” most of its meatless products contain cow’s milk. Join us in telling parent company Kraft Heinz that it’s time to ditch the dairy and make BOCA an all-vegan brand.At least 60 percent of adults worldwide can’t digest cow’s milk. Millions more are cutting out milk not only for their own health, but also for the environment and for animals, who, as a recent Animal Outlook investigation exposed, suffer a systematic cycle of cruelty in the dairy industry. On factory farms, dairy cows are impregnated by artificial insemination year after year; each newborn calf is taken from them shortly after birth so their milk can be sold for humans; and when their exhausted bodies can no longer produce milk, these mother cows are sent to slaughter because they’re no longer considered profitable.As more and more Americans turn away from cow’s milk, dairy alternatives are flying off the shelves, with sales projected to reach $35 billion by 2024. To meet the meat-free, dairy-free demand, brands like Gardein, the Bill Gates-backed Beyond Meat, and Field Roast are already producing completely vegan burger lines, and even fast food giants like White Castle are dishing up plant-based patties. After hearing from consumers, meatless brand Lightlife also jumped aboard in 2017, announcing its transition to a 100% vegan line. If Lightlife can do it, why can’t BOCA?A report by international restaurant consultants Baum+Whiteman named plant-based dining as the 2018 trend of the year, citing factors like a 257% increase between 2012 and 2016 in vegan-labeled food and drink products at grocery stores. BOCA is falling behind in this plant-based revolution--but it can reposition itself as an industry leader in this rapidly growing market by dropping dairy for good.Join us today in telling Kraft Heinz that consumers are craving an all-vegan BOCA brand, and it’s time to ditch the dairy.

Bring Gluten-free Kraft Dinner to Canada!

Watch my gluten-free Kraft Dinner petition video. MY MISSION: Bring Kraft's delicious gluten-free Kraft "Macaroni & Cheese" to Canada. (As gluten-free Kraft Dinner, of course!) WHY?  Kraft Dinner is a Canadian tradition! It's the unofficial official food of Canada. According to Wikipedia, Canadians eat 55% more KD than Americans and it's the most popular grocery item in the country. On a personal note: KD has been there for me throughout my entire life. It was my favourite food from the ages of 5-7. It got me through long nights of studying at university. It was the best late night snack after a night out. If a restaurant had it on the menu as a side, it would be my first choice—OVER FRIES, PEOPLE—and that's saying a lot. BUT. That all changed when I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2016. Suddenly, my favourite comfort food was off-limits.  DEAR KRAFT: I know that the gluten-free Macaroni & Cheese is a fairly new product, but what are you waiting for? If we eat KD more than Americans, why haven't you brought it here yet? There are hundreds of thousands of people who don't—or can't eat gluten. For many of us, it's a lifelong dietary restriction... not a trend. (Hi from the celiac disease community!) You want lifelong repeat customers? We celiac/gluten-free people are ready and waiting. TLDR: Bring gluten-free KD to Canada! We get delicious goodness in a box, you get money! Win-win! * * * * * * * * SO... WHAT CAN YOU DO?If you want to see Gluten-free Kraft Dinner in Canada: Sign your name to this petition!  Share this petition on social media! #glutenfreeKDpetition Optional: Run down the street dressed as a noodle screaming "GLUTEN-FREE KD!" Let's show Kraft what the gluten-free community is made of... cheese powder and noodles. ;)
