So, what is caramel colors?

Caramel colors are a group of food colorings made by heating sugars. They are commonly used in the food industry to enhance the appearance of products such as sauces, soups, and beverages. Caramel colors come in a range of hues, from light yellow to dark brown, and they are classified by their color intensity. Despite being called "caramel," they do not have a caramel flavor. They are often used in combination with other colorings to achieve the desired shade. Caramel colors are generally considered safe for consumption and are approved by regulatory agencies around the world.
