Sanatogen dyed with additives

15th April 2008

Sanatogen vitamin pills, a best-seller, are coloured by artificial additives which can provoke allergies and "hyperactive behaviour in children."

The vitamins sell £40million in the UK. The colours sunset yellow and quinoline yellow are used in Sanatogen Gold, and Sanatogen's Kids A To Z Strawberry Flavour contain the colour Ponceau 4R. The Food Standards Agency said last week that six additives (including the colours used by Sanatogen) should be banned because of their potential side-effects.
