Plain caramel is a caramel colour food dye. It is made by heating carbohydrates without the presence of ammonium or sulfite compounds.
Caramel colors are considered generally safe in the levels used in foods.
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.
