Spectrophotometric analysis of artificial food colors in commercial drinks consumed by children

Journal of the Saudi Chemical Society 9(1): 1-9
Spectrophotometric analysis of artificial food colors in commercial drinks consumed by children
Various types of soft drinks and beverages with added fruit juices have been analysed for the contents of two of the most frequently used artificial food colorants: Tartrazine (E102) and Sunset Yellow (E100). These analytical measurements were carried out primarily to assess whether the concentration levels and daily intakes of these food dyes in beverages, commonly consumed by children, comply with the recommended desired content levels and permissible daily intakes.
