So, what is color stabilizer?

A color stabilizer is a food ingredient that helps to preserve the natural color of food by preventing it from fading or discoloration due to exposure to light, heat, or air. It works by inhibiting the oxidation process and preventing the breakdown of pigments. Color stabilizers are commonly used in processed foods such as canned goods, frozen foods, and baked goods to maintain their visual appeal and prolong their shelf life. Some common examples of color stabilizers include ascorbic acid (vitamin C), citric acid, and sodium erythorbate. However, the use of color stabilizers has been controversial due to potential health risks associated with some synthetic additives.
