What are the ingredients in yellow Skittles?
Another great skittles question!
In a packet of skittles the ingredients are as follows; Sugar, Corn Syrup, Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Oil, Apple Juice from Concentrate, Less than 2% Citric Acid, Dextrin Modified Corn Starch, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Coloring (includes Yellow 6 Lake, Red 40 Lake, Yellow 5 Lake, Blue 2 Lake, Yellow 5, Red 40, Yellow 6, Blue 1 Lake, Blue 1)Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) SUGAR AND CORN SYRUP ARE THE FIRST TWO INGREDIENTS AND ARE VERY FATTENING…
One of the ingredients of Skittles is gelatin, which is a product extracted from the collagen in animals' connective tissue; some of which are pigs. *UPDATE* -- According to a pack of Skittles purchased 7/27/10, Skittles are gelatin- and gluten-free. There is also nothing to suggest animal by-products in the ingredient list. No, there is no pork in Skittles.
Skittles' ingredients: Sugar, corn syrup, hydrogenated palm kernel oil, apple juice from concentrate, less than 2% - citric acid, dextrin, modified corn starch, natural and artificial flavors, coloring (includes yellow 6 lake, red 40 lake, yellow 5 lake, blue 2 lake, yellow 5, red 40, yellow 6, blue 1 lake, blue 1), ascorbic acid (vitamin c). No milk listed - so the answer would appear to be NO

For a traditional bag of skittles, there are five different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, and purple.
