E150c - Ammonia Caramel

Food additives

Group: E100–E199 (colours)

The E150s give a dark brown colour to food and are produced by heat treatment of sucrose.
These colourings can sometimes add a bitter taste to food products containing them.
E150 can also act as an emulsifier in soft drinks.
There have been some reported concerns associating hyperactivity in children with these food colourings, though we couldn't find detailed evidence for this. E150(c) and E150(d) have been known to cause intestinal problems if large quantities are consumed.
