Even though the regulation has established the maximum limit unluckily, one research showed that the concentration of tartrazine
exceeded the maximum limit in gelatin and powder juice (45).

Reza Fadakar Bajeh Baj explained about the research, and said, "Price difference in dyes is a reason why food and beverage producers use edible dyes such as sunset yellow and tartrazine
more than the permitted amount.
The recent rice sample collected by FSSAI has also been analysed at an external independent lab at the same time and it confirmed that tartrazine
or any other synthetic colour is not present in the product.
Teresita Palomares, the supervising science research specialist and ITDI Food Processing Division officer-in-charge Teresita Palomares, said the standard process to develop the tiesa into natural food color as an alternative to the synthetic food coloring tartrazine
or FD&C Yellow 5 was based on the fruit's characteristics.
There were some minor changes and improvements to the formulation, including deletion of the antibiotics used in the production of the virus and removing the tartrazine
dye in the tvpe 7 tablet.
