Is there any way to correct over usage of Carmoisne E122 colorant in prepared guava juice?


Best Answer , 12 October 2021 - 09:29 AM

Greetins Rol,

 

Unfortunately the batch, in my opinion, should be discarded. Carmoisine is related to intolerance issues in high amounts in adults and maybe hyper-reaction if consumed by children. If I recall correctly in Europe the max amount allowed in non-alcoholic beverages is 50mg/l.

To my knowledge there is no chemical that can neutralize carmoisine (at least a food safe one) and also if you dilute it too much the quality of your product will take a severe hit.

Although it involves an economic loss, I think it is better in the long run than a bad reputation due to bad safety/quality reasons.

 

Regards!

 

PS: I do have to mention that there may be a way with oxidation but it's propably not worth the effort and the end result might still be something at least of poor quality.
