So, what is acido carminico?

Acido carminico, also known as carmine acid or cochineal extract, is a natural food coloring agent derived from the cochineal insect. This bright red pigment has been used for centuries to add vibrant hues to various food and beverage products, including fruit juice, yogurt, candy, and even cosmetics. Acido carminico is a popular alternative to synthetic food colorings due to its natural origin and non-toxic properties. It is also known for its stability and resistance to heat, making it a versatile ingredient in a wide range of food applications. However, some individuals may be allergic to acido carminico, and it may not be suitable for those following a vegan or vegetarian diet.
