Abstract
Now-a-days synthetic food dyes are being used mostcommonly as food colorant in confectionaries, drugs andcosmetics. Present study was designed to evaluate the toxiceffect of tartrazine, a widely used azo dye, on Swiss Albino mice.Experimental animals were treated with tested dye at a doselevel 200mg/kg & 400mg/kg body weight along with normaldiet. Various physiological and biochemical parameters wereassessed to study the toxic effect of tartrazine. Our studyrevealed a highly noticeable decrease in the body weight gainof mice at 400mg/kg dose compared with the control group. Asignificant variation in the average weight of the major organs(heart, kidney an...
