Here’s the European version of Froot Loops. It’s Manufactured by Kellogg’s in the UK, and distributed across the continent. This package has information, including nutrition and ingredients, in German, French, Swedish, and Finnish.
Looking at the product, you can see that the colors are slightly different than the American version of Froot Loops. We asked a German speaking friend to look over the ingredient list and learned that the coloring comes from spinach, currants, carrots, and paprika extract. The American version is colored with Red #40 or Yellow #5, artificial dyes that are associated with cancer and hyperactivity.
Additionally, the German Froot Loops contain no trans-fat, unlike the American version which uses Partially Hydrogenated Oil.
On the down side, the sugar content in the European version is slightly higher – 3.5 teaspoons instead of just 3.
