This is one of the most commonly used dyes in food. It has no other purpose than to make food or drink look more colorful, tricking you into thinking it’s tastier. This dye is inserted into almost everything you can imagine, fruit drinks, cereal, over the counter medications, sodas, and sports drinks. Studies have shown that this additive can cause hypersensitivity and/or ADHA in both adults and children.
