So, what is caramel colorant?

Caramel colorant is a food ingredient that is commonly used as a coloring agent in a variety of food and beverage products. It is made by heating sugar or corn syrup until it caramelizes, creating a dark brown liquid with a distinct sweet flavor. This colorant is versatile and can be used to add a deep brown color to foods such as sauces, soups, and baked goods. It is also used in carbonated beverages, beer, and other alcoholic drinks to provide a rich, caramel hue. Caramel colorant is a natural alternative to artificial food dyes, and it is widely used in the food industry to enhance the appearance of products.
