So, what is erythrosine?

Erythrosine, also known as Red No. 3, is a synthetic red dye commonly used as a food coloring. It has a bright red color and is often added to desserts, candies, and beverages to enhance their appearance. Erythrosine is a water-soluble dye that is considered safe for human consumption by regulatory agencies in many countries. However, some studies have linked high doses of erythrosine to potential health risks, such as thyroid tumors and DNA damage. Therefore, it is important to consume erythrosine in moderation and only as part of a balanced diet.
