Food Color Additives

Food dyes are popular in the food industry and are used to make products appear fresher and healthier. They are also used to give colorless foodstuff a more characteristic appearance as well as to change the original colors to preferred artificial ones.

However, certain food coloring additives have been banned in many countries since they have been found to have a detrimental effect on consumers′ health. For precise detection of all regulated food color additives, Sigma-Aldrich offers a comprehensive range of standards, including neats and deuterated analytical standards.
