So, what is yellow 11?

Yellow 11 is a synthetic food dye that belongs to the azo dye family. It is commonly used in various food products such as candies, baked goods, and beverages to enhance their yellow color. The dye is manufactured by combining aromatic hydrocarbons with diazonium salts, and it exhibits strong light and heat stability, making it ideal for use in processed foods. However, some studies have suggested that Yellow 11 may have potential negative effects on human health, including hyperactivity and allergic reactions. Despite these concerns, Yellow 11 remains a popular choice among food manufacturers looking to add a bright yellow hue to their products.
