Chemicals found in mac and cheese powder might pose serious health threat, study says – USA Today
New research suggests macaroni and cheese powder contains high concentrations of potentially dangerous chemicals.
The Coalition for Safer Food Processing and Packaging, the group behind KleanUpKraft.org, tested 30 cheese products for phthalates, a group of plastics used to make plastics more flexible. Phthalate levels were more than four times higher in macaroni and cheese powder.
The study, which has not been published in a peer-reviewed journal, was paid for by environmental advocacy groups.
While the coalition says phthalates pose a serious threat to the health of pregnant women and children, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports health effects from exposure to low levels of the chemicals are unknown. That said, some phthalates have altered lab animals’ reproductive systems, the CDC says.
