So, what is tartracina?

Tartracina is a synthetic yellow azo dye that is commonly used as a food coloring agent. It is soluble in water and has a bright yellow color, making it popular in the production of various processed foods, including candies, soft drinks, sauces, and desserts. Tartracina is known for its stability under different pH levels and temperatures, making it ideal for use in a wide range of food products. Despite being approved by various regulatory agencies, some studies have linked tartracina consumption to adverse effects such as hyperactivity and asthma. As such, it is important to practice moderation when consuming foods containing this ingredient.
