Food coloring is a dye, often a liquid added to foods to change its color, both in home and commercial cooking.

Since people tend to associate colors with certain flavors, it is especially popular in commercially produced foods since the color can affect the percieved flavor. Dyes are sometimes added to foods to preserve colors that the consumer expects and mask variations or enhance natural colors.


Food coloring is often found in recipes that also contain cocoa powder, buttermilk, confectioner's sugar, cream cheese and white vinegar
