Kosher Coke In California Looks Unlikely For A Second Year In A Row

Way ta go CA!  Your idiotic laws are crimping those who want only to freely exercise the religion of their choice.

Coca-Cola may be missing from Passover feasts for the second year in a row in California.

The Coca-Cola Co. said Thursday it once again won't be able to make "kosher for Passover" versions of its flagship cola this year because of manufacturing changes that were made in the state.

Regular Coca-Cola is sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup in the United States but the Passover version is made with sugar because many observant Jews do not use products made with corn during the holiday.

Last year, Coke directed its suppliers to change the way they manufacture caramel to reduce levels of the chemical 4-methylimidazole, or 4-MEI, after California listed it as a carcinogen. The company said the new caramel process has since rolled out nationally to streamline its manufacturing process. But outside California, it's still using the previous caramel process so that it can continue providing kosher for Passover products.
Wikipedia has an article on the food coloring.  When you finish reading it you might be like me trying to figure out what all the fuss was about.  The results are best are that the food coloring actually PREVENTS cancer.  At worst... the reults show there are no conclusive results!!

CA, you eff'd up again!
