So, what is colorant bêta carotène?

Colorant bêta carotène is a natural pigment that is commonly used as a food coloring agent. It is a type of carotenoid, which is a class of pigments found in many fruits and vegetables. Bêta carotène is commonly extracted from carrots, and it gives foods a vibrant orange or yellow color. It is a popular food coloring because it is stable at high temperatures and doesn't lose its color when exposed to light. Bêta carotène is also a source of vitamin A, which is essential for good vision and a healthy immune system.
