So, what is azorubin?

Azorubin, also known as E122, is a synthetic red food dye that is commonly used in the food industry to give products a vibrant red hue. It is made from coal tar and is often used in sweets, desserts, and beverages, such as fruit juices and sports drinks. Azorubin is a popular choice for manufacturers because it is stable, meaning it can withstand high temperatures and exposure to light, which makes it ideal for use in processed foods. However, some studies have suggested that excessive consumption of azorubin may cause adverse health effects, such as hyperactivity and asthma. Therefore, it is important to consume it in moderation.
