On twitter we were having a discussion about the colours of clinkers, a much loved lollie/chocolate.

Carly linked to the Cadbury site which sited 102, 123 and 133 as the colours used.

To find out what the colours were exactly I did a bit of digging and found this site which gave me this information about the colours used:

Colour 102
Tartrazine
A real Long list. In summary, causes Asthma, concentration & learning  difficulties, depression, swelling of lip and tongue, insomnia, not reccomended for children and carinogenic

Colour 123
Amaranth
Hyperactivity, hives, asthma, rhinitis, carcinogenic, may affect reproduction, liver, kidney.

Colour 133
Brilliant Blue
Not Recommended for children. Causes  Asthma, Hive, Hay Fever, allergic reactions. Carcinogenic.

So yeah, never eating clinkers again…

This is according to the World’s Healthiest Foods website. Can’t say I’m too excited about the Calf’s Liver that apparently will be awesome for me?!

Apparently the way it works is the the percentage refers to how deficient you are in that nutrient. And the foods on the right are what you can eat to increase your nutrients. The number next to the food shows how many of the important nutrients are in that food. For example, the Calf’s Liver (yuk!) has give of those nutrients I need more of…
