So, what is fd& c yellow 5?

FD&C Yellow 5 is a synthetic lemon-yellow food colorant that is commonly used in the food industry to enhance the color of various processed foods and beverages. Also known as Tartrazine, this water-soluble dye is made from petroleum-based chemicals and is approved by the FDA for use in food, drugs, and cosmetics. It is used in a wide range of products, from candy and baked goods to soft drinks and energy drinks. However, some studies have linked Tartrazine to hyperactivity and other behavioral issues in children, and some people may experience allergic reactions or sensitivity to the dye. Therefore, it is important to read food labels and be aware of the presence of this ingredient.
