Does anyone know how I can make red food colouring not have a bitter after taste in your mouth. My family hates eating any icing made with red colouring in it?
Thanks Sue

I use the Americolor brand of red and I never have a problem with a bad aftertaste. No customer has ever complained about it. I think the Americolor is wayyy better than wilton colorings.

Wilton makes a "No Taste" red food coloring. There is no bitter taste with it.

Thanks it was Americolor I used with the after taste. I will have to look for the wilton no taste one. I think my family is very sensative too things. I did have to use 2 1/2 bottles to get the right shade of red for my fire truck.

Before I was able to get americolor, I would add a bit of almond extract to my red icing, it helps mask the bitter taste
