Mounting Concerns Regarding the Adverse Impact of Synthetic Colors on Health to Bolster Growth

Food coloring continues to remain in demand in the market as companies continue to attract consumers with attractive food coloring. Multiple surveys suggest that food coloring continues to occupy a vital position in the F&B market as consumers continue to base their judgment on the coloring of food products.

Although synthetic colors continue to remain in use, recent researches inspecting the association of various health problems with the consumption of synthetic food coloring have surfaced making consumers question the safety of the ingredients. Studies have suggested the presence of a carcinogen called benzidine in food dyes labeled Yellow 5, Red 40, and Yellow 6 which find usage in over 85% of the food industry.

Though approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, the release of such studies are influencing a consumer shift towards products using natural food coloring. Other researches have linked prolonged consumption of synthetic food colors with ADHD, allergies, hyperactivity in children, and deterioration of the human immune system. This is causing food and beverage manufacturers to gradually shift to using natural food colors in their products.
