Question: What food products might you use anthocyanins, betalains, carotenoids in as a food additive? Individually, not as a group. I would appreciate specific examples for each.

Answer: Anthocyanins (E 163) are found in cordials like Cottee's Apple Blackcurrant Crush and snack bars like Kellogg's K-time Muffin Bars® Blueberry Flavor as well as icing decorations and snack bars. Betalains (E 162) are found mainly in icing decorations. Carotenoids (the E 161 group) are found in mayonaises and cookies.
