What Soda Companies use Caramel Coloring?
Researchers did a study on soda and what sodas had high levels of 4-MEI in them and they found unsafe levels of the chemical in these sodas that use caramel coloring: Coca-Cola, Pepper Snapple, Pepsi-Cola, and Dr.Pepper. Coke and pepsi products tested is causing about 15,000 cancers among U.S population. Sprite, which was also tested showed no great levels of 4-MEI in it. What everyone is wondering is why the Coke, Pepsi, Dr.Pepper, Pepper Snapple, and other soda companies are still using these deadly chemicals.
Will Soda Companies Make the Change?
In conclusion everyone can drink all the coke and pepsi they want without having worries about the future. We can all hope that other companies are like coke and pepsi and can also make the change. But all of the sugar, calories, and artificial flavors in soda might be a new worry for you and your family.
