The use of yellow food colouring became very popular in Spain as a substitute for saffron, an ingredient that, during the lean years, was inaccesible to most families. Contrary to what most people may think, this yellow food colouring only adds color to rice dishes, stews or desserts, but no flavour at all. It is used to enhance the yellow colour of saffron, if a more intense color is desired.
Carmencita is one of Spain's most recognisable brands with its ranges of spices gracing most food shops.
