Recently there have been numerous reports regarding the potentially dangerous use of Sudan dyes for colorizing food products . For example, Sudan I is an intense orange dye useful as a coloring agent for plastics and other industrial products but not intended for use in foods. However, Sudan I has been found in red chili products and in tomato based products sold for human consumption. Sudan dyes are aromatic azo compounds and are presumed to be carcinogenic. Therefore, there is an urgent need for improved methods for determination of these compounds in foods.
