    Food colours are food additives which are added to foods mainly for the following reasons:

    1.to make up for colour losses following exposure to light, air, moisture and variations in temperature

    2.to enhance naturally occurring colours

    3.to add colour to foods that would otherwise be colourless or coloured differently.

    Food colours are contained in many foods, including snack foods, margarine, cheese, jams and jellies, and desserts, drinks, etc. Each food colour authorised for use in the European Union is subject to a rigorous scientific safety assessment.

    EFSA’s Panel on Food Additives and Nutrient Sources added to food (ANS) carries out the safety assessment of food colours. The Panel’s safety evaluations of food colours and other food additives involve a review of all available, relevant scientific studies as well as data on toxicity and human exposure, from which the Panel draws conclusions regarding the safety of the substance.

    From 2009 to 2016, the ANS Panel re-evaluated the safety of all previously authorised food colours as part of the re-evaluation of all food additives in use before January 2009.

    Consideration whether certain food colours are likely to trigger adverse allergic reactions is carried out by EFSA’s Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies.

    Colours used in food and feed

    Colours used as food additives may also be authorised for use as feed additives. The evaluation of the safety of food additives and feed additives is carried out by different Scientific Panels at EFSA, with different data requirements due to the separate regulatory frameworks in the two areas. However, EFSA’s Panels co-ordinate their scientific work to ensure consistency in their risk assessment approaches and consideration of the available scientific information within these fields.
