Bugs in Ocean Spray?

Mr. Taster | Jul 22, 2004 08:03 PM

I just finished reading the book "Fast Food Nation" and read something that I thought could be of interest. In the chapter which discusses the manufacturing of artificial flavors and colors (in which he describes that the smell and flavor of a hamburger grilling over a fire can be recreated on a chemical strip), he describes that the artificial red color used in Ocean Spray pink grapefruit juice coctail contain pigments that are derived from a very specific type of African red-shelled beetle!

Is anyone familiar with this? Does Ocean Spray have a hecks.?
