Crystal Light


CSPI's litigation department sent a letter to Kraft Foods, concerning its Crystal Light line of "Natural" lemonade and iced tea mixes.

The products contain several decidedly unnatural ingredients, including the artificial sweeteners aspartame and acesulfame-potassium, artificial colors such as Red 40, Yellow 5, and Blue 1, the factory-produced texturizer maltodextrin, and the controversial synthetic preservative butylated hydroxyanisole, or BHA.
This misleading "natural" claim is in violation of state consumer protection laws. CSPI has notified Kraft Foods that it will be sued if it continues to use the word "natural" in connection with its Natural Lemonade, Natural Pink Lemonade, Natural Lemon Iced Tea, and Natural Lemon Decaffeinated Iced Tea.
