Caramel is produced by heating carbohydrates in the presence of ammonia salts and sulphites (possibly with ammonium sulphite). Caramel is a widely used ingredient in sodas and other beverages. In some countries, its use is limited in food production because of the presence of 4-Methylimidazole (4-MEI) and other nitrogen thermal treatment by-products, all substances recognised as potential carcinogens. These health concerns also regard vinegars and consequently some producers do not add caramel on their BC and BV, instead using alternative colours or technologies to achieve the dark-brown shade.
