So, what is rojo 40?

Rojo 40 is a synthetic red food coloring agent that is widely used in the food industry to enhance the visual appeal of food products. This bright red dye is a popular choice for coloring candies, baked goods, beverages, and processed foods. It is made by combining petroleum-based chemicals with aromatic hydrocarbons to create a bright red color that is resistant to fading. While rojo 40 is approved by regulatory agencies for use in food products, some studies have suggested that it may have negative health effects, including hyperactivity and allergic reactions in some people. Therefore, it is important to consume rojo 40 in moderation and to read food labels carefully to understand which products contain this ingredient.
