So, what is e150c?

E150c is a food colorant, also known as caramel III or ammoniated caramel. It is derived from the controlled heat treatment of sugars with or without the presence of alkalis or acids. The resulting caramel color is a dark brown to almost black liquid with a sweet, burnt flavor. E150c is commonly used in the food industry to provide a uniform brown color and enhance the taste of a wide range of products such as colas, soy sauce, baked goods, and meat products. Despite being a natural ingredient, excessive consumption of E150c has been associated with potential health risks, including carcinogenicity and allergic reactions.
