Kosher Without Artificial Colors
« on: October 24, 2021, 11:17:28 PM »
There is a lot of research suggesting that artificial food colorings increase hyperactivity in children that are prone to it. There is also a lot of  personal experiences that seem to confirm this.
For those who try to avoid giving their children these kind of treats, there are many products that are now available with natural colors. However, many of them are not kosher. For example, although Target's Fruit Strips and Fruit Twists are kosher, their Fruit Snacks are not.

My goal here is to try and compile a list of those that are both Kosher and Without Artificial Colors.

I can't see it clearly on the Amazon image but the Florida's Natural also looks like it has a Heimesha Hechsher.

I added most of the Hechsherim info and will try to add more as I come across them.

It does seem to be a "Yitzur Meyuchad" but those are the only ones available for sale. The Box version has a clearer image than the tub: I added it to the wiki

I'm pretty sure it is:

But anyway I'll change the name in the wiki because you're right it's not on the box.

It is probably a private label made by them
