So, what is e141i?

E141i is a food additive that is commonly used as a colorant in various food products. Also known as copper complexes of chlorophylls and chlorophyllins, this ingredient is a green pigment that is derived from chlorophylls found in plants. E141i is commonly used in processed foods such as canned vegetables, sauces, dressings, and confectionery products to enhance their visual appeal. This natural colorant is generally considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies, including the FDA and the European Union. However, individuals with allergies to chlorophyll or copper may need to exercise caution when consuming products that contain this ingredient.
