  • thats true but so many other things have this dye in it as well.

  • It's not juice, it's manufactured from a bunch of chemicals and food extracts like citric acid and maltodextrin with the dyes being the LEAST of the ingredients. All you're doing is drinking chemicals dissolved in water. It's like drinking diet pop, even has the phenylalanine in it! If you're ok with that, then I wouldn't worry about the dye unless you're sensitive to it.

  • The dyes are bad for you; the artificial sweeteners are bad for you. It is all fairly toxic

  • I can't get past the nasty taste of the artificial sweetener. I won't touch anything it's in.

  • It's the artificial sweetners that are bad for you. I refuse to buy anything that has artificial sweetners in it. Also, my dad has MS and the sweetners are bad for people with MS and other medical conditions.

  • Drink organic and you won't have to worry about that crap.
