Did you know they use bugs in yogurt?

This is no joke, I saw it on 20/20 the other day. Here is a website about it too.  Carmine is a color in bugs they use to die a lot of foods, esp. yogurt with. So if you like the strawberry type yogurts, then you are eating bug parts.

This is not a joke: there is ground up red beetles being used right now as a food coloring ingredient in yogurt, ice cream, juice drinks and many other grocery products. The ingredient is called “Carmine.”

The above was taken from the web site, first paragraph.

Btw I am drinking a Dannon Fusion Smoothie “Strawberry blend” and it has Carmine. It also has another name according to 20/20, forgot what they said.

But, who would have known those little bugs taste so good. That or the flavorings real or artificial do a great job masking their taste. LOL.

Also try doing a Google search: carmine yogurt and see what you come up with. I saw tons of hits as well.

Make up, drinks, anywhere red dye is to be used, they just may use Carmine instead. Read your labels.

So what do you all think about that?
