Caramel Color in Beef Broth

Recommended Posts

Hello. I read through the entire Whole30 book as well as the sneaky sugar list on the website and did not see anything about caramel color not being allowed. I used organic beef broth that lists that as an ingredient but says 0g of sugar. I saw some people posting in the forum that it was a form of sugar. I’m wondering if I ruined my Whole30....

Hmm...I could have sworn that it used to be on a couple different lists as a no-go. 

Hopefully a mod will come in and give a better answer, but I would say that you did your searching and could not find a definitive answer from the official Whole30 resources, so in the grand scheme of things you can just keep trucking along.

Caramel color is made from sugar, which is why on the forum mods have always said avoid it. I am not sure why it didn't end up on any of the additives or sneaky sugars lists.

What I would say is, avoid it going forward, but for now, just keep going.
