So, what is óxido de titanio?

Óxido de titanio is a naturally occurring white powder that is commonly used as a food colorant, opacifier, and sunscreen ingredient. It is made up of titanium and oxygen atoms, and is known for its high refractive index and ability to scatter light. In food, it is used to enhance the whiteness of products like confectionery, dairy products, and sauces. As a sunscreen ingredient, it is used to block harmful UV rays from penetrating the skin. While generally considered safe for consumption, concerns have been raised about the potential health effects of consuming high levels of óxido de titanio.
