So, what is amarillo ocaso?

Amarillo ocaso, also known as sunset yellow, is a vibrant yellow food coloring and flavoring agent commonly used in the food industry. Derived from coal tar, this synthetic dye is often added to baked goods, candies, snacks, and beverages to give them a bright yellow hue. Its slightly bitter taste is often described as fruity and is often used in combination with other flavors to enhance the overall taste of the product. However, due to potential health concerns, some countries have restricted or banned the use of amarillo ocaso in food products.
