There is no scientific evidence that caramel color, used in colas as well as many other foods, causes cancer or any other health concerns, in humans.

The science simply does not show that caramel color in foods or beverages is a threat to human health. In fact, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a person would have to drink more than 1,000 cans of soda a day for a lifetime to match the doses administered in studies that showed any negative effect on mice.
