It's not a beetle.


Red food coloring has been bugs since the dawn of man. Would you prefer some lab grown synthetic shit instead?


Gay. I'd rather the red food coloring be made with blood.

Just take some chump, stab him to death, and drain his blood into a bar to be used to color your food.


Don't eat food with colouring in it.

I would prefer bugs over artificial crap though.


Isn't there some artificial raspberry flavor made out of beaver buttholes or something?

Ye, here it is. Beaver squirts.


Bugs have been used for dye production for literally thousands of years, anon.

It's still gross, though. If you want to avoid Carmine, look for products that list things like "Cochineal Carmine acid", "Natural Red 4" or "E120". All of those are different names for it.



Wait until you learn that many candies, fruits, and vegetables are covered in shellac. It is a secretion made by insects, and coating is a preservative and to give food some shine and smoothness.



Shellac hasn't been used for much in food other than pill casings and the surface of citrus fruits for ages
