New ways have been created to enhance the flavors and organoleptic properties of foods, as well as to extend their shelf life, make them safer against bacteria or facilitate cooking processes. However, at the same time, there has been an interest in researching the nutrients and health benefits of multiple foods.

In this way, it has been found that various artificial components such as preservatives or colorants can have adverse effects.
