I don’t usually bake with food coloring – but, then again, I don’t really bake much apart from bread. I have, however, tried to use vegetable juice to dye my homemade play-dough, but that didn’t turn out so well – it was just a terrible mess of beet juice and bits of beets staining the kitchen. So I was excited to learn about Maggie’s Naturals, a food coloring made from all natural and organic plant, fruit, and vegetable extracts.
Maggie’s Naturals believes you should know the food that you ingest is safe, know the ingredients on the label, and trust the companies that make them. And it’s easy to trust this same company that produces eco-kids, a line of art supplies using non-toxic, natural ingredients and environmentally friendly packaging. We love the finger paints, play-dough, and even non-toxic crayons and glue for crafts.
Maggie’s Naturals is available in six colors including blue made from Green made from green gardenia extract, spinach, and parsley and Pink made from beets and sweet potato.The set costs $60 for six colors, but could probably last for an entire childhood of cookies.
Two lucky readers will either a Maggie’s Naturals 6-pack of Food Colorings ($60) or an Eco Dough + Rolling Pin set ($30). Contest closes 9/10 and winners will be randomly selected.
