Quinoline Yellow food colouring molecule. Molecular model of Quinoline Yellow, an organic compound used as colouring in foods such as scotch eggs, smoked haddock and cough sweets. Quinoline Yellow, also known as E104, is very commonly used in the UK, but is banned in the USA and Japan. There are concerns over this food colouring being linked to allergic reactions, hyperactivity and temper tantrums in children. Research has shown that behaviour problems increase with higher additive levels in food, so parents have been advised not to give children foods containing these additives. Atoms are colour-coded: hydrogen (pale blue), carbon (gold), nitrogen (dark blue), sulphur (yellow) and oxygen (red).
