Who doesn't LOVE mac and cheese? I personally could probably eat it daily, same with my kids. Well, a new study that came out found that there are some deadly chemicals in most boxes of our favorite cheesy treat.
The study was done on 30 cheese products, and 10 out of different boxes of mac and cheese, 9 were found to have toxic chemicals in them. The chemical phthalates was found mostly in the powder cheese mix.
“The phthalate concentrations in powder from mac and cheese mixes were more than four times higher than in block cheese and other natural cheeses like shredded cheese, string cheese and cottage cheese,” Mike Belliveau, who is the executive director of the Environmental Health Strategy Center was quoted in the New York Times.
It's a bit of a long read but could be worth checking out the results of the test HERE
