Caramel colouring is commonly found in many food and beverage products and is considered to be safe and harmless according to leading food ingredient authorities worldwide. Here at DDW, our products go into over two billion servings of foods and drinks each day — so we take food safety and product quality very seriously. Over the past 40 years, we’ve participated in millions of dollars of food safety studies, which have all concluded that caramel color is safe and harmless.
A caramel color safety review completed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in March 2011 found that caramel colors are “neither genotoxic, nor cacinogenic.” In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lists all four classes of caramel color listed on the Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list of food ingredients.
