You Won’t Find Little Debbie Swiss Rolls In Other Countries
Little Debbie Swiss Rolls contain Yellow 5 and Red 40, both food colorings that can adversely affect children. For this reason, Norway and Austria banned them. Other European Union countries have warnings placed on the box, so parents know the dangers of buying this product. But you don’t find those warnings in America.
Yellow 5 and Red 40 both have FDA approval. However, some studies show that there is an association between these dyes and hyperactivity in children. Yellow 5 links with behavioral changes, such as depression, irritability, difficulty sleeping, and restlessness. Other studies reveal that this isn’t the same reaction in all children. Perhaps genetics also play a part in whether they’re affected or not.
