Starbucks dye your drinks with Insects!!!!

Something that few knew. And now Starbucks will no longer use the dye ground-based insects that gave the characteristic color to their products.As a result, from June, will opt for lycopene, a plant pigment that gives the characteristic red color of tomatoes, watermelons and other fruits.

This decision was taken following the decision of more than 6 000 500 people who signed a petition against the unusual originated dye.

It is noteworthy that the insect in question is the cochineal (Dactylopius coccus Costa). According to a document that was published on its website, Starbucks used the pigment in the Frappuccino Strawberries & Cream, Strawberry Banana Smoothie, Raspberry Swirl cake, birthday cake Pop, among others.
