DETERMINATION OF SUNSET YELLOW IN DIFFERENT BRANDS OF ORANGE JELLIES OF BANGLADESH BY HPLC
AbstractSynthetic colorants may have adverse health effects, therefore, it is necessary to ensure controlled use of these colorants in various alimentary products. In this study, 54 samples of six brands of orange jellies were analyzed for the determination of ‘Sunset Yellow’ color by High Performance Liquid Chromatography. The results showed that the value of Sunset Yellow in one brand of orange jelly exceeded the Bangladesh Standard and Testing Institute (BSTI) value, the values in four other brands were within the range of the BSTI value, and it was absent in the last one. One brand yielded more than twice the maximum BSTI value and four times the maximum value from the European Union. These results indicated that there is a need to monitor the amounts of synthetic colorants used in food products to protect the public health from serious adverse effects related to such chemicals and to create awareness to the consumers as well as policy makers.
