Excessive use of food colouring can be really bad for you, even if it’s within the limits allowed. Experts are talking about all the bad things that can happen to your health because of artificial food colouring.

The ban on Gobi Manchurian and cotton candy

The Karnataka government recently banned Gobi Manchurian and cotton candy because they have artificial colours that can make you sick. The health minister of the state, Dinesh Gundu Rao, said that while a little bit of ‘tartrazine’ is okay in packaged foods, using too much of it in restaurants can be really dangerous.

What are synthetic food colours?

Synthetic food colours are chemicals that are added to food to make them look better and more appealing. Some common food colours are tartrazine, sunset yellow, amaranth, allura red, quinoline yellow, brilliant blue, and indigo carmine. It’s best to avoid foods with these colours to stay safe and healthy.

The risks of artificial food colouring on health

There are a lot of bad things that can happen to your health because of artificial food colouring. These chemicals are often found in popular foods like candies, soft drinks, packaged snacks, and even street food. They can cause hyperactivity in children, allergies, and even cancer. It’s important to be careful about what you eat and choose natural options whenever possible.

Food colouring under FSSAI regulations

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has rules about adding colours to food. They require food labels to list all additives, including colours, so that consumers know what they’re eating. People need to be aware of these chemicals in their food, especially if they have allergies or sensitivities.

In conclusion, it’s crucial to be mindful of the food colors we consume and choose natural alternatives whenever possible. Being aware of what we eat can help us stay healthy and avoid potential risks associated with artificial food coloring.
