Starbucks om cochenille -uittreksel uit te faseer

Starbucks om cochenille -uittreksel uit te faseer

Onder druk van die kliënt het Starbucks Corp. Donderdag aangekondig dat hy teen einde Junie sal oorskakel van die gebruik van cochenille -uittreksel, 'n kleurstof wat uit die fyngedrukte lywe van gedroogde insekte bestaan.

Die bestanddeel is in Maart aangeval nadat die veganistiese en vegetariese webwerf thisdishisvegetarian.com berig het dat Starbucks kogleïene uittreksel gebruik, wat soms onder die bestanddele as 'karmyn' in sy pienk kleuraanbiedings verskyn. Artikels wat met die uittreksel gemaak word, sluit in die aarbeie en crème Frappuccino, aarbei -smoothie, framboos -wervelkoek, verjaardagkoekpoppe, mini -doughnuts met pienk versiersel en rooi fluweel whoopee -pasteie.

Die uittreksel word al jare in die voedselbedryf gebruik, en Starbucks het dit aanvanklik begin gebruik in 'n poging om kunsmatige bestanddele uit te skakel. Die openbare terugslag het die koffiemaatskappy in Seattle genoop om te herformuleer, het Cliff Burrows, president van Starbucks se Americas-afdeling, in 'n blogplasing gesê.

"Ons het geleer dat ons aan u verwagtinge voldoen het deur natuurlike cochenille -uittreksel as 'n kleurstof in vier voedsel- en twee drankaanbiedings in die Verenigde State te gebruik," het Burrows geskryf. 'Ons verbintenis tot u, ons kliënte, is om die beste kwaliteit produkte te bedien. As ons kliënte verwag en verdien u beter - en ons belowe om beter te doen. ”

Burrows het gesê dat die aarbei Frappuccino en smoothie herformuleer word om lycopeen, 'n natuurlike uittreksel uit tamatie, te gebruik. Hy het bygevoeg dat die onderneming sal oorgaan van die gebruik van cochenille -uittreksel in die vier ekstra voedselitems.

'Hierdie oorgang sal mettertyd plaasvind namate ons hersienings afhandel en produksie bestuur,' het Burrows geskryf. "Ons bedoeling is om teen einde Junie in die VSA ten volle oorgedra te word van bestaande produkvoorrade na hersiene voedsel- en drankaanbiedings"

'N Woordvoerder van die maatskappy verduidelik dat die ketting nog nie besluit het oor die vervangingsstrategie vir die vier voedselitems nie. Die onderneming kan byvoorbeeld oorskakel na die gebruik van wit versiersel op die doughnuts, of die rooi fluweelkoekpiepgeur heeltemal uitfaseer, het sy gesê. Ongeag, sal kogleïene uittreksel nie meer gebruik word nie.

Kommentaar wat Donderdag op die blogpos gereageer het, was grootliks positief. Baie het gesê dat hulle allergies is vir produkte met cochenille -uittreksel en sien daarna uit om die drankies te probeer. Ander het egter gesê dat hulle allergies is vir tamatieprodukte. En baie het gevra waarom die spyskaarte nie met regte aarbeie of 'n uittreksel uit die vrugte gekleur kon word nie.

Starbucks Corp. het aan die einde van sy eerste kwartaal 17 244 plekke wêreldwyd gehad, waaronder 12 494 in die Amerikas -streek, wat die VSA, Kanada en Latyns -Amerika insluit.

Starbucks erken sy fout in die verberging van die gebruik van Cochenille -uittreksel vir kliënte

Veganiste en ander vegetariërs sal bly wees om te weet dat gister Starbucks's (SBUX), president van die maatskappy, Cliff Burrows, het veganisties en ander vegetariërs 'n feitelike verskoning gevra, wat ontsteld was toe hulle verneem het hoe die onderneming die gebruik van kogleïene insekekstrak gebruik om sy Strawberries & Crème Frappuccinos en Strawberry Smoothies sy pienk kleur te gee. Veganiste sal ook bly wees om te weet dat Burrows ook gesê het dat die maatskappy begin het met die hersiening van 'alternatiewe natuurlike bestanddele' vir die drankies. Hier is die amptelike persverklaring van Starbucks.

Waarom moes Starbucks in die eerste plek hierdie verskoning vra, en hoe het dit veganiste kwaad gemaak?

Veganiste het feesgevier toe Starbucks in Mei 2011 sy nuwe "Maar-You-Want-It Frappuccino." afkomstig van diere of ander lewende wesens. Veganiste het entoesiasties gereageer. Eric Fortney, medestigter en skrywer van ThisDishIsVeg.com, skryf in sy artikel wat die aankondiging deur Starbucks dek (jy kan Starbucks se persverklaring hier sien):

Die media het egter ontsteld geraak toe Daelyn Fortney, medestigter en skrywer van ThisDishIsVeg, berig dat Starbucks die algemene publiek mislei het deur sy Strawberries & Crème Frappuccinos en Strawberry Smoothies as veganisties te beskryf. Sy het onlangs 'n prentjie gekry van die bestanddele in die frappuccino's en smoothies van 'n Starbucks -barista wat duidelik die gebruik van rooi kleurstof van die cochenille wys wat gemaak word deur die verplettering van vroulike cochenillekewers in Mexiko en Suid -Amerika. Die uittreksel gee die drankies 'n pienk kleur. Die foto's vir die bestanddele in die frappuccino's en smoothies kan gevind word in die artikel van Daelyn hier.

Ek het Daelyn per e -pos gekontak om te vra of sy 'n petisie wil vra vir die verwydering van die uittreksel as gevolg van haar veganistiese leefstyl, of as sy 'n werklike rede het om geïrriteerd te wees by Starbucks. Daelyn het gesê dat die hoofrede vir die publikasie van die verhaal 'was om [hul] lesers te laat weet dat die drank, wat vroeër as veganisties aangemeld is, nie meer veilig is om te drink nie. Starbucks self het haar nou ook bevestig uit baie media -aansprake, wat haar direk of indirek daarvan beskuldig het dat sy haar veganistiese agenda aangepak het.

Daelyn het geen probleem met ondernemings wat die kleurstof gebruik nie, en sê: 'As ander ondernemings die toevoeging wil gebruik, is dit heeltemal aan hulle en nie my plek om hulle te vra om op te hou om dit te gebruik nie - solank hulle nie reklame maak nie die produk is veilig vir veganiste. ” Die skrywers van ThisDishIsVeg is teë oor die gebrek aan kommunikasie tussen die onderneming en sy kliënte.

Terwyl 'n paar nuusblaaie, insluitend USA Today, wat oordeelkundig oor die onderwerp gerapporteer is, het baie in die media die verhaal oorspronklik gerapporteer deur die gebruik van cochenille -uittreksel in die drank te beklemtoon om diegene wat nie kennis dra van die voorkoms daarvan in baie eet- en drinkgoed (insluitend myself) te skok. Verhale het byvoorbeeld titels gehad soos “BRUTO! Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino bevat 'gedroogde liggame' van goggas. ”

Die gebruik van die rooi kleurstof is egter geen groot verrassing nie. Die cochenille -uittreksel word sedert minstens die vyftiende eeu gebruik en word in baie Amerikaanse produkte gebruik, van Yoplait -jogurt tot drie Kellogg's (K) Pop-Tarts-geure. Ander het die klagte van Daelyn verklein deur die gesondheidsvoordele van die cochenille -ekstrak te beklemtoon in vergelyking met die negatiewe gevolge vir die gesondheid van ander kunsmatige bestanddele, wat beteken dat veganiste dit net moet hanteer, want die rooi kleurstof is beter vir almal. CBCNews het byvoorbeeld begin met: "Starbucks luister na die verbruiker se drang om meer natuurlike voedsel. [.] Die insluiting van 'n karretjie het kritiek uitgelok by sommige veganiste en vegetariërs, maar 'n Kanadese voedselwetenskaplike het gesê dat die uittreksel van insekte steeds 'n beter opsie as sintetiese ekwivalente. " Die artikel gee slegs 'n klein draai aan veganiste aan die einde van die artikel deur te sê: 'Wat veganiste en vegetariërs met' verborge 'uittreksels van die dier teëkom, het Hekmat gesê dat dit opgelos kan word deurdat produsente meer openlik en deursigtig is oor hul produkte . "

Hier is wat Starbucks gedoen het.

Nadat Starbucks amptelik sy nuwe "How-You-Want-It Frappuccino" aangekondig het, het die onderneming in Januarie vanjaar bedrog oorgegaan na die gebruik van kogleïene uittreksel. Veganiste het steeds aanvaar dat die drankies vegan-vriendelik is omdat die maatskappy geen amptelike aankondiging bekend gemaak het nie en dat die bestanddele nie op die profiel van die drank verskyn nie. Daelyn het in haar e-pos gesê: 'Ek het persoonlik met Starbucks bevestig dat die drank' vry is van dierlike produkte ',' en sy neem aan dat die drank veganisties was na die aanvanklike aankondiging in Mei verlede jaar. Verlede jaar het 'n werknemer van die koffiehuis -ketting selfs aan ThisDishIsVeg gesê om sy lesers daaraan te herinner dat die slagroom suiwel bevat om te verseker dat veganiese kliënte hul dieet kan volg.

Toe Starbucks in Januarie weg was van die gebruik van kunsmatige bestanddele om sy drankies gesonder te maak, het hy sy vroeëre noukeurige PR -metode laat vaar. Die maatskappy het egter niks onwettigs gedoen nie, na aanleiding van die FDA -regulasies oor die gebruik van kogleïene ekstrak. Die maatskappy het oorspronklik op Daelyn se artikel gereageer met hierdie stelling: 'By Starbucks het ons die doel om kunsmatige bestanddele in ons produkte tot 'n minimum te beperk. Die aarbeibasis vir ons Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino bevat wel cochenille -uittreksel, 'n algemene natuurlike kleurstof wat in die voedselbedryf gebruik word, en dit help ons om van kunsmatige bestanddele af weg te gaan.

Daelyn se reaksie op die verandering van hart van Starbucks? In 'n e -pos aan my het sy gesê:

"Ek dink dit is fantasties dat Starbucks van plan is om van kunsmatige bestanddele weg te gaan. Daar is egter ander alternatiewe plante wat op plant gebaseer kan word. Of hulle kan die kleurstof saam laat vaar. En ek het nog nooit iemand gevra om te boikot nie. Die doelwit met die oorspronklike artikel was om mense te help verstaan ​​wat hulle verbruik. "

Dit lyk asof Starbucks nou met haar saamstem.

ThisDishIsVeg wil net Starbucks aanspreeklik hou vir die oorspronklike eis vir sy Frappuccinos van 'How-You-Want-It', spesifiek die aanvanklike bewering dat dit vegan-vriendelik is, en 'kliënte' toelaat om 'n gemengde drank te skep wat op hul eie is. "

"Ek dink dit is fantasties dat Starbucks van plan is om van kunsmatige bestanddele weg te gaan. Daar is egter ander alternatiewe plante wat op plant gebaseer kan word. Of hulle kan die kleurstof saam laat vaar. En ek het nog nooit iemand gevra om te boikot nie. Die doelwit met die oorspronklike artikel was om mense te help verstaan ​​wat hulle verbruik. "

Dit lyk asof Starbucks nou met haar saamstem.

ThisDishIsVeg wil net Starbucks aanspreeklik hou vir die oorspronklike eis vir sy Frappuccinos van 'How-You-Want-It', spesifiek die aanvanklike bewering dat dit vegan-vriendelik is, en 'kliënte' toelaat om 'n gemengde drank te skep wat op hul eie is. "


Starbucks erken sy fout in die verberging van die gebruik van Cochenille -uittreksel vir kliënte

Veganiste en ander vegetariërs sal bly wees om te weet dat gister Starbucks's (SBUX) Cliff Burrows, president van die maatskappy, het veganiste en ander vegetariërs deesdae verskoning gevra, wat ontsteld was toe hulle verneem het hoe die onderneming die gebruik van kogleïne insekekstrak gebruik om sy Strawberries & Crème Frappuccinos en Strawberry Smoothies sy pienk kleur te gee. Veganiste sal ook bly wees om te weet dat Burrows ook gesê het dat die maatskappy begin het met die hersiening van 'alternatiewe natuurlike bestanddele' vir die drankies. Hier is die amptelike persverklaring van Starbucks.

Waarom moes Starbucks in die eerste plek hierdie verskoning vra, en hoe het dit veganiste kwaad gemaak?

Veganiste het feesgevier toe Starbucks in Mei 2011 sy nuwe "Maar-You-Want-It Frappuccino." afkomstig van diere of ander lewende wesens. Veganiste het entoesiasties gereageer. Eric Fortney, medestigter en skrywer van ThisDishIsVeg.com, skryf in sy artikel wat die aankondiging deur Starbucks dek (jy kan Starbucks se persverklaring hier sien):

Die media het egter ontsteld geraak toe Daelyn Fortney, medestigter en skrywer van ThisDishIsVeg, berig dat Starbucks die algemene publiek mislei het deur sy Strawberries & Crème Frappuccinos en Strawberry Smoothies as veganisties te beskryf. Sy het onlangs 'n prentjie gekry van die bestanddele in die frappuccino's en smoothies van 'n Starbucks -barista wat duidelik die gebruik van rooi kleurstof van die cochenille wys wat gemaak word deur die verplettering van vroulike cochenillekewers in Mexiko en Suid -Amerika. Die uittreksel gee die drankies 'n pienk kleur. Die foto's vir die bestanddele in die frappuccino's en smoothies kan gevind word in die artikel van Daelyn hier.

Ek het Daelyn per e -pos gekontak om navraag te doen oor die versoek dat sy wil uittreksel verwyder as gevolg van haar veganistiese lewenstyl, of as sy 'n werklike rede het om geïrriteerd te wees by Starbucks. Daelyn het gesê dat die hoofrede vir die publikasie van die verhaal "was om [hul] lesers te laat weet dat die drank, wat vroeër as veganisties aangemeld is, nie meer veilig is om te drink nie." Starbucks self het haar nou ook bevestig uit baie media -aansprake, wat haar direk of indirek daarvan beskuldig het dat sy haar veganistiese agenda aangepak het.

Daelyn has no problem with companies using the dye, and says, “If other companies wish to use the additive, that is completely up to them and not my place to ask them to stop using it -- as long as they aren't promoting the product as safe for vegans.” The writers at ThisDishIsVeg take issue with the lack of communication between the company and its clients.

While a few news outlets, including USA Today, reported judiciously on the topic, many in the media originally reported the story by accentuating the use of cochineal extract in the drinks in order to shock those who lacked knowledge of its prevalence in many food and drink items (myself included). For example, stories had titles such as “GROSS! Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino contains 'dried bodies' of bugs.”

The use of the red dye is no big surprise, though. The cochineal extract has been used since at least the fifteenth century and is used in many American products, from Yoplait yogurts to three Kellogg's (K) Pop-Tarts flavors. Others downplayed Daelyn’s complaint by emphasizing the health benefits of the cochineal extract compared to the negative health impacts of other artificial ingredients, implying vegans should just deal with it because the red dye is better for everyone. CBCNews, for example, opened with " Starbucks is listening to the consumer push for more natural foods. [. ] The buggy inclusion has sparked criticism from some vegans and vegetarians, but a Canadian food scientist said that the extract borne of insects is still a better option than synthetic equivalents." The article only gives a small nod to vegans at the end of the article by stating, "As for vegans and vegetarians taking issue with 'hidden' animal extracts, Hekmat said that this could be resolved by producers being more open and transparent about their products."

Here is what Starbucks did.

After Starbucks officially announced its new "However-You-Want-It Frappuccino," the company surreptitiously switched to the use of cochineal extract in January of this year. Vegans still assumed that the drinks were vegan-friendly because the company released no official announcement, and the ingredients are not listed on the drink's company profile. Daelyn said in her email, “I, personally, confirmed with Starbucks that the drinks were ‘free from animal-derived products,’” and she continued to assume the drink was vegan-friendly after the initial announcement last May. Last year, an employee at the coffee house chain even told ThisDishIsVeg to remind its readers that the whipped cream contained dairy to ensure vegan customers could follow their diet.

When Starbucks moved away from using artificial ingredients in January to make its drinks healthier, it abandoned its earlier meticulous method of PR. The company did nothing illegal, though, following FDA regulations on the usage of cochineal extract. The company originally responded to Daelyn's article with this statement: “At Starbucks, we have the goal to minimize artificial ingredients in our products. The strawberry base for our Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino does contain cochineal extract, a common natural dye that is used in the food industry, and it helps us move away from artificial ingredients.”

Daelyn's response to Starbucks' change of heart? In an email to me, she said:

"I think it's fantastic that Starbucks plans to move away from artificial ingredients. However, there are other natural plant-based alternatives that can be used. Or, they can forgo the dye all together. And, I've never asked anyone to boycott the company. Again, my goal with the original article was to help people understand what they are consuming."

It looks like Starbucks agrees with her now.

ThisDishIsVeg just wants to hold Starbucks accountable for its original claim for its “However-You-Want-It Frappuccinos," specifically its initial claim of being vegan-friendly, and and allow "customers to create a blended beverage that is uniquely their own."


Starbucks Admits Its Mistake in Hiding the Use of Cochineal Beetle Extract From Customers

Vegans and other vegetarians will be happy to know that, yesterday, Starbucks's (SBUX) company president Cliff Burrows made a de facto apology to vegans and others vegetarians, who were dismayed upon learning about the company's usage of cochineal insect extract to give its Strawberries & Crème Frappuccinos and Strawberry Smoothies its pink coloring. Vegans will also be happy to know that Burrows also stated that the company has begun reviewing "alternative natural ingredients" for the drinks. Here is the official press release from Starbucks.

Why did Starbucks have to make this apology in the first place, and how did it anger vegans?

Vegans celebrated when in May of 2011 Starbucks announced its new “However-You-Want-It Frappuccino." Starbucks baristas could now make frappuccinos and smoothies with soy milk, and the drinks would now be vegan-friendly, meaning they would not contain ingredients derived from animals or other living creatures. Vegans responded enthusiastically. Eric Fortney, co-founder and writer for ThisDishIsVeg.com, wrote in his article covering the announcement by Starbucks (you can view Starbucks’s press release here):

However, the media bugged out when Daelyn Fortney, co-founder and writer for ThisDishIsVeg, reported that Starbucks misled the general public by portraying its Strawberries & Crème Frappuccinos and Strawberry Smoothies as vegan-friendly. She recently received a picture of the ingredients in the frappuccinos and smoothies from a Starbucks barista that clearly showed the use of cochineal red dye made from the crushing of female cochineal beetles found in Mexico and South America. The extract gives the drinks their pinkish coloring. The photographs for the ingredients in the frappuccinos and smoothies can be found in Daelyn’s article here.

I contacted Daelyn via email to inquire if she intended to petition for the removal of the extract due to her vegan lifestyle or if she had a real reason to be annoyed at Starbucks. Daelyn stated that the main reason for publishing the story was “to let [their] readers know that the drink, that was once reported as vegan, is no longer safe to consume.” Starbucks itself has now also vindicated her from many media claims, which directly or indirectly accused her of pushing her vegan agenda.

Daelyn said in her email, “I, personally, confirmed with Starbucks that the drinks were ‘free from animal-derived products,’” and she continued to assume the drink was vegan-friendly after the initial announcement last May. Last year, an employee at the coffee house chain even told ThisDishIsVeg to remind its readers that the whipped cream contained dairy to ensure vegan customers could follow their diet.

When Starbucks moved away from using artificial ingredients in January to make its drinks healthier, it abandoned its earlier meticulous method of PR. The company did nothing illegal, though, following FDA regulations on the usage of cochineal extract. The company originally responded to Daelyn's article with this statement: “At Starbucks, we have the goal to minimize artificial ingredients in our products. The strawberry base for our Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino does contain cochineal extract, a common natural dye that is used in the food industry, and it helps us move away from artificial ingredients.”

Daelyn's response to Starbucks' change of heart? In an email to me, she said:

"I think it's fantastic that Starbucks plans to move away from artificial ingredients. However, there are other natural plant-based alternatives that can be used. Or, they can forgo the dye all together. And, I've never asked anyone to boycott the company. Again, my goal with the original article was to help people understand what they are consuming."

It looks like Starbucks agrees with her now.

ThisDishIsVeg just wants to hold Starbucks accountable for its original claim for its “However-You-Want-It Frappuccinos," specifically its initial claim of being vegan-friendly, and and allow "customers to create a blended beverage that is uniquely their own."
