Our expert says:
All the preservatives used in foods, pharmaceuticals and vitamin or mineral supplements have been approved for human consumption. If your children have tested positive for potassium sorbate allergy or sensitivity then you should avoid products preserved with this compound. If you children are not allergic then you can use the product without concern. Please check on the label of the orange Scotts Emulsion if it says anything about containing beta-carotene. The latter is a pro-vitamin that is often used in food and pharmaceutical products to product a deep orange colour. It is produced from deep orange-coloured foods such as carrots, butternut, pumpkin, etc. and is perfectly safe. Otherwise, phone the manufacturer and ask what colourant is being used. Once again your children would only need to avoid the colourant if they are allergic to that specific one.
