There is controversy over the food dye found in Kraft macaroni and cheese that is distributed in the United States and yet the color of the very same item distributed in the UK is the same and the scientists who examined the food found no dye in the UK food (money.msn.com). I can taste the difference between Coca Cola distributed to the US and Mexico. The food that we eat and is distributed in different countries, shouldn't there be disclosure? How can dye be added and not clearly posted on the front of the label? Is this lack of disclosure safe? Should we be concerned for our health?

KN - I think that, if you look deeper, you may find the source of your surprise. Dyes are a specific class of chemicals. There are colorings that are not dyes. I'm not sure, but I suspect that these are among the unregulated additives.
Over the last couple of years, disclosure of certain additives are becoming less and less. Just this year, there has been controversy on adding "aspartame" (a very bad chemical additive) to labels. Disguises for others are also on labels. Be careful!
