So, what is carbonates de fer?

Carbonates de fer, also known as iron carbonates, are naturally occurring minerals that consist of iron, carbon, and oxygen. These compounds are typically found in sedimentary rocks and soil, and are commonly used as a source of iron in a variety of industrial applications. Iron carbonates are insoluble in water, and can be either green or brown in color. In the food industry, carbonates de fer are used as a food coloring agent to add brown hues to products such as chocolate, bread, and baked goods. However, due to its limited solubility, it is not as commonly used as other food coloring agents.
