Food color is a type of additive that imparts color, when added to food or drink. They are available in several forms, such as liquid, powder, gel and paste. The colors are added to the food for serving several purposes, such as influencing the perception of the consumer, as people relate color to flavors. Colors make foods attractive and appetizing, thus  enabling consumers to identify products easily. Basically, there are two types of food colors, naturally derived and nature identical. The nature derived colors are extracted from natural resources, such as plants, microbiological sources, animal, and minerals. On the other hand, nature identical or synthetic colors are obtained through chemical synthesis that replicates molecular structure of natural food color to appear identical to them.
