Thank-you for that, I don't eat much processed food but that's put me off even more and alerted me to more things to look for on food labels.

I don't get the point of using crushed bugs instead.

There are probably marketing studies that typify the exact hue that has the most customer eye-appeal*. Then the manufacturers will find the cheapest and most stable source of that colour which will not react with the other ingredients.

* Some of these appear to be the same lurid tones as highlighter pens, I'm sure they can't do you any good.

My point is it would be so very, very easy to just tint the products with natural fruit.

I agree, but don't think it would produce the uniformity or exact shade as required for mass-production and in a display they look paler and less "appetising" than their artificial competitors. It's a case of educating consumers to want the natural alternative which may not look as "nice".
