Mac & Cheese Products Have High Levels of Phthalates

Macaroni and cheese mixes made with powdered cheese contain high levels of potentially harmful chemicals called phthalates, according to a new study.

Phthalates, which can get into food from packaging and equipment used in manufacturing, have been linked to genital birth defects in infant boys and learning and behavior problems in older children, The New York Times reported.

Researchers tested different cheese products and found that all 10 varieties of macaroni and cheese included in the study had high levels of phthalates, even those labeled as organic.

Making mac & cheese out of real cheese, milk and pasta isn't all that difficult, folks, and it tastes so much better than the orange powder stuff.
