I've heard great things about the Feingold Diet for ADHD.

I've heard great things about the Feingold Diet for ADHD. But, where do I find the FD&C #, or e-numbers on food? Is that in the ingredients?

Hi,

The Feingold Program eliminates three groups of synthetic food additives and one class of synthetic sweeteners:

synthetic colors (FD&C and D&C colors)
synthetic flavors (several thousand different chemicals)
synthetic preservatives (BHA, BHT, and TBHQ)
artificial sweeteners (Aspartame, Neotame, and Alitame)
