So, what is indigotina?

Indigotina, also known as indigo carmine or FD&C Blue No. 2, is a synthetic dye commonly used in the food industry to add a blue color to various food products, including candy, ice cream, and beverages. It is a water-soluble powder that is made by synthesizing indigo, a natural blue dye obtained from plants. Indigotina is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies in the United States and Europe, but some studies suggest that it may cause allergic reactions or hyperactivity in some individuals. Despite this, it remains a popular choice for adding vibrant blue hues to foods and beverages.
