So, what is indigotine?

Indigotine is a synthetic blue food coloring that has been approved by the FDA for use in foods, drugs, and cosmetics. Also known as FD&C Blue No. 2 or E132, it is commonly used to give products a blue or purple hue. Indigotine is derived from coal tar and is water-soluble, making it suitable for a variety of applications. However, some studies have suggested potential health risks associated with the consumption of indigotine, so it is important to use this ingredient in moderation. Despite this, indigotine remains a popular choice for adding vibrant color to many different types of food products.
