Another unnecessary and potentially harmful ingredient in food. I've seen this stuff in some of the cheese that I buy.

"Annatto orange-yellow colour is a vegetable dye made from the seed coat of the tropical Annatto tree (Bixa orellana). In Australia it is commonly used in cereals, snack foods, dairy foods including yoghurts, icecreams and cheeses, snack foods and a wide range of other foods. It can also be called bixin and norbixin."

"Adverse reactions to annatto can include skin, gastrointestinal, airways and central nervous system reactions."

Ughhh. I notice they put this in a cheese I was gonna buy. At first I was hopeful because I looked it up and saw it was natural. Why do they feel the need to add this to cheese?
