E162 Beetroot Red, Betanin

Quote:
A deep red/purple natural extract from beetroot, the principle compound of which is beta-d-glucopyranoside of betanidine..

Fairly unstable in many processes and can impart an earthy taste.

Can be found in bacon burgers, desserts, ice cream, jams, jellies, liquorice, oxtail soup, sauces and sweets.

No adverse effects are known but should be avoided by babies and young children as it contains nitrates[/quote]

[quote]Halal if used as 100% dry color. Mushbooh if used as liquid color, the solvent has to be Halal


Android MuftiSays App says it's Halal :)

What do you mean by dry and liquid colour. I have it supplement which is a powder and contains beetroot red, does that mean it is in dry form?
