Ammonia caramel is a caramel colour food dye. It is made by heating carbohydrates in the presence of ammonium compounds.
Caramel colors are considered generally safe in the levels used in foods, though higher levels have been found to cause abnormally low white blood cell counts in mice and rats.
The carbohydrate source for caramel production may come from allergenic sources such as wheat, barley, or milk, so individuals with allergies may wish to avoid caramel colours or contact manufacturers to request information about allergen levels.
