Holidays are times for celebration, usually with parties and brightly colored decorations. Many of these decorations come in the form of drinks and food, by the clever use of something called food coloring. Food coloring is any substance - liquid or powdered - that changes the coloring of a food or drink. Some holidays are just prime for this - Halloween, St. Patrick's Day, 4th of July, and of course Christmas.
Here we'll look at this marvel of food changers - how this substance came about, how it can be used in foods and drinks, and how the natural vs artificial debate weighs in.
