Off hand, I can’t think of anything I eat that glows in the dark, but the bright orange mango slices shown here to the right sure look like they would! Funny how when I slice open a fresh mango…it’s yellow inside! And when I purchase additive-free dried mango slices (as shown below), they are brownish-yellow in color.
But I commonly see bright orange slices sold as “dried mangoes,” too, and they are full of additives, like sulphur dioxide & artificial colorings!
Even more ridiculous is that the bins and packages containing these “glow-in-the-dark” varieties often state that they contain “sulphur dioxide for color retention“! Huh? For retention of what color exactly??? The artificial yellow #5 that they’ve added to the slices for some reason??? Or is it the yellow #6 color whose retention is aided by this sulphur dioxide?! I am truly perplexed, and I’m not even sure I want to know! Wow! It really should not be this complicated just to eat real food!
