Nanotechnology is a fast growing field and consider as a key-technology of the 21st century. Nanoparticles are not only used in high-tech products or medical devices but are also more and more incorporated in food producers, for example in sweets. In addition, for food-coloring, azo-dyes are frequently used which makes an encounter of azo-dyes and nanoparticles unavoidable, The aim of this work was the isolation and characterisation of these dyes without including nanoparticles in a selected sweet product.
