La bétanine is a natural food coloring agent extracted from the roots of beets. It has a reddish-purple hue and is commonly used in various food products, including candies, dairy products, and beverages. Besides being a vegan-friendly alternative to synthetic food colorings, la bétanine also boasts several health benefits as it is believed to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Furthermore, its vibrant color adds an aesthetic appeal to dishes and beverages, making it a go-to ingredient for those who want to enhance the visual appeal of their creations.
