So, what is carmín de índigo?

Carmín de índigo is a natural food dye extracted from the dried bodies of female insects known as Dactylopius coccus costa. These insects are commonly found on prickly pear cacti and have been used for centuries by indigenous communities in Mexico and Central America to create vibrant shades of red and purple. Carmín de índigo is a popular ingredient in many food products, including confectionery, beverages, and dairy products. This natural coloring agent is known for its stability and versatility, making it an excellent alternative to synthetic food dyes. With its deep, rich hue, carmín de índigo adds a visually appealing element to any dish or beverage.
