So, what is caramel as coloring?

Caramel is a versatile food ingredient that can be used for more than just adding sweetness to your favorite desserts. When used as a coloring, caramel can impart a rich, golden-brown hue to food products like baked goods, sauces, and even beverages. Made by heating sugar until it reaches a specific temperature, caramelization causes the natural sugars to break down and form a deep, complex flavor that adds depth to any recipe. As a coloring, caramel provides a natural alternative to artificial dyes, allowing food manufacturers to create visually appealing products without sacrificing taste or quality.
