So, what is cáramel color?

Caramel color is a food coloring derived from carbohydrates, such as corn or sugar. It is used to add a rich, brown hue to foods and beverages, including colas, baked goods, and soy sauce. Caramel color has a sweet aroma and enhances the flavor of many products. It is generally considered safe for consumption, although some studies have suggested a possible link between caramel color and cancer. As such, some manufacturers have begun replacing it with alternative natural colors like annatto and turmeric. Despite this, caramel color remains a popular and widely used ingredient in the food industry.
