8 readily available foods in the US that are banned in other countries
It is a known fact that several snacks and drinks commonly available in American grocery stores are unhealthy. However, some common foods are so unhealthy, they're banned in other countries.
As first highlighted by Buzzfeed, a new book titled "Rich Food Poor Food" by Dr. Jason Calton and certified nutritionist Mira Calton features a section solely dedicated to a list of banned ingredients, including where they are banned and what caused governments to ban them.
One of the most common ingredients that has been banned in some countries is artificial food coloring. Food coloring is made from petroleum and is found in several American products, such as soda, sports drinks, macaroni and cheese, and candies. Although average consumption of these products may not cause adverse effects, moderate to excessive consumption of some of these ingredients can have life-threatening consequences.
