Estimation of artificial colourants permitted in Brazil in food products

Estimation of artificial colourants permitted in Brazil in food products

A simple, inexpensive method for the estimation of 8 artificial food colourants (Amaranth, Sunset Yellow FCF, Brilliant Blue FCF, Erythrosine, Indigotine, Ponceau 4 R, Tartrazine and Red 40) used in Brazil is described. The colourants were extracted with chloroform and n-butanol in the form of ionic pairs obtained with citrimide. The colourants were identified by thin-layer chromatography (silica gel G saturated with citrimide) using 2 solvent systems.

A method for simultaneously determining four artificial food colourants [Red Nos. 2 (R2) and 40 (R40), Yellow Nos. 5 (Y5) and 6 (Y6)] and three carotenoids [lycopene, lutein, and β-carotene] was developed. They were successfully separated by the...
