European Union (EU) legislation requires most additives used in foods to be labelled in the list of ingredients either by name or by an E number. All additives with E numbers have passed safety tests and have been approved for use.
The Food Standards Authority (FSA) has advised parents of children showing signs of hyperactivity that cutting certain artificial colours from their diets might have some beneficial effects. The additives to avoid are: E110 (Sunset Yellow), E104 (Quinoline yellow), E122 (Carmoisine), E129 (Allura red), E102 (Tartrazine) and E124 (Ponceau 4R).
