Default Scary Easter Candy

I was eating some Easter candy, reading the ingredients (bad move), and
came across a few ingredients I've never heard of before. This was one of
them:

Not only is it a cured polyurethane composition containing epoxy resin,
but it's also an Easter candy as well!

All it is is an inert white pigment.

It's just refined titanium ore, in other words clean dirt. The stuff
when ground up into a fine dust is very, very, very white.

There's an additive that makes buttercream whiter that contains the same
stuff.

Factory-made candy will almost always contain "fake" ingredients.

The production process is a little more
complex than that.

Titanium dioxide is what I use to make my beeswax white for my egg
decorating. It is very very white.

We have a plant here that makes the stuff. They take titanium ore and
treat it with several chemicals and turn out a pure, harmless coloring
agent. They're known as Louisiana Pigments, aka LAPIG. Large payroll,
well-treated employees, very low accident rate. I used to consult with
them on occasion. Pretty nice folks with lots of money tied up in
environmental controls.

Ok, so as ethical consumers, we can still eat foods that include this
ingredient.

Good. Now I know where I can get some powdered pigment. It's hard to
find up here in the art stores.

The first foodstuff I ever saw it in was quarts of non-fat non-dairy
"coffee whitener" cream substitute. Carnation is one brand.
