Good news if you’re a parent who has been concerned about the dyes in your child’s Kraft macaroni.
According to CNN, Kraft has changed its character-shaped product line for 2014. They are adding six additional grams of whole grains, removing some fat and salt, and Kraft will use spices instead of artificial food dyes to recreate the pasta’s famous yellow-orange color.
The company will remove Yellow No. 5 and Yellow No. 6 from boxes containing pasta shaped like SpongeBob SquarePants and those with Halloween and winter shapes. Two new shapes of the popular pasta — Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and “How to Train Your Dragon 2” from Dreamworks — will also be free of food coloring.
