A red colour extracted from tomatoes and pink grapefruit, which does not appear to be in use currently.

Be aware that if it does become widely available it may be produced from Genetically Modified tomatoes.

There has been much made recently of Lycopene being very useful for its' anti-cancer properties but it is not apparent whether the quantities that would be used as an additive would be beneficial - the recommendation being to eat a tomato a day! (GM tomatoes have not yet been approved for general sale as tomatoes - only purées and pastes).

Not permitted in Australia.
