What is YELLOW 6 LAKE?

What is YELLOW 6 LAKE?

Benzenesulphonic acid treated with hydrochloric acid and sodium nitrite. (Yeah sorry it is really bad stuff combined together). Since it is a lake, salt has been added to it so it is insoluble in liquids.


Where does YELLOW 6 LAKE come from?

Yellow 6 Lake comes from lots of chemicals.


How is YELLOW 6 LAKE made?

Tartrazine is prepared from 4-amino benzenesulphonic acid, which is diazotized using hydrochloric acid and sodium nitrite. The diazo compound is then coupled with 4,5-dihydro-5-oxo-1-(4'-sulphophenyl)-1H-pyrazole-3-carboxylic acid or with the methyl ester, the ethyl ester, or a salt of the carboxylic acid. The resulting dye is purified and isolated as the sodium salt.


Tartrazine may be converted to the corresponding aluminium lake under aqueous conditions by reacting aluminium oxide with the colouring matter. Undried aluminium oxide is usually freshly prepared by reacting aluminium sulphate or aluminium chloride with sodium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate, or aqueous ammonia. Following lake formation, the product is filtered, washed with water and dried


Is YELLOW 6 LAKE healty for me?

Yellow 6 is banned in Norway and Finland.

Side effects - gastric upset, diarrhea, vomiting, nettle rash (urticaria), swelling of the skin (angioedema) and migraines, linked to hyperactivity in young children.

    AJDIVER if you think we\'re being dramatic you\'re ignorant. this is one out of 100 chemicals in foods that will destroy your body over time. Maybe a bag of reeses pieces every month won\'t do much damage but hey, it\'s your body. Trash it all you want.
