Some types of caramel color, an additive found in many colas, contain a compound (4-MEI) that may cause cancer, according to some animal studies. Recently, California’s Environmental Protection Agency began requiring a cancer warning for products with 4-MEI that exceeded the state’s recommended limit. As a result, Coca-Cola reformulated their colas sold in the U.S. to use a 4-MEI-free caramel color, and PepsiCo pledged to do the same by February 2014.</p> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_news_blog/what_you_need_to_know_about_caramel_color#comments Food News Blog Health Blog Food & health news Health Lisa D'Agrosa Nutrition Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 27 Jan 2014 15:31:01 +0000 Sarah Hoff 281257 at http://www.eatingwell.com
