You can't eat numbers! Additive Alert - Tim Tams!

Did you know that Australia's favourite biscuit - Tim Tams - have two food colourings in them to make them that delicious brown colour.

They are:
110 - sunset yellowwhich is a susected carcinogen, causes allergies, hyperactivity, ashmatics should avoid, and is banned in USA and Norway and used to be banned here in Oz.
And 129 - Allura Red AC - also suspected carcinogen, skin rashes and hypersensitivity. Banned in Denmark, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Norway.


So now you know why your kids go up the wall after a couple of Tim Tams.
We always say.. you can't eat numbers.. if there are numbers on the packet put it back on the shelf!

For a great read on this topic check out the book Additive Alert by Julie Eady
