So, what is fd and c red no.3?

FD&C Red No. 3 is a synthetic food coloring agent that is commonly used to add a vibrant red hue to food products. This coloring is water-soluble and is often found in a wide range of processed foods, such as candies, cereals, and baked goods. It is also used in medications and cosmetics. FD&C Red No. 3 is approved by the FDA, but it has been banned in several countries due to potential health risks. Some studies have linked this color additive to cancer in laboratory animals, although the evidence is inconclusive for humans. Despite this, FD&C Red No. 3 is still used in many food products worldwide.
