Description: Brown FK is a potentially dangerous brown mixture of six synthetic azo dyes together with other colouring's and sodium chloride and/or sodium sulphate.
It is mainly used to give fish flesh a healthy pigment which will not leach or fade during cooking.
A toxic additive with many side effects. Many of these dyes are discharged into the environment, like rivers and therefore can find their way into animals and ultimately humans
