So, what is azorrubina?

Azorrubina is a bright red synthetic dye commonly used as a food coloring agent. Also known as E122, it is derived from coal tar and belongs to the group of azo dyes. Azorrubina is a popular choice for adding vibrant red hues to a wide range of food products, including drinks, sweets, and bakery items. However, it has been linked to adverse health effects, including allergies and hyperactivity in children. Therefore, its use is regulated by food safety authorities in many countries. Despite its colorful appearance, azorrubina should be consumed with caution.
