Jell-o and headackes

I heard that food coloring can cause migraine headackes so can I buy Jell-o without the sweetener and color?

Re: Jell-o and headackes

You would have to eat more than your body weight in food coloring to trigger a migraine caused by food coloring. This was debunked by the red dye #10 years ago....and many mice.

If you want jello without food coloring and sweetener...gelatin, as in plain basic gelatin is the basis for jello. Sheet gelatin is another term for it. You can add flavorings as you choose. Gelatin comes from animals hooves.

Not true, I always used to get migraines from Hawaiian Punch

Yes. Just buy a box of plain gelatin. You will have to add something for flavor, but you control the ingredients.
