What Is Sour Blue Raspberry Bottles?
Sour Blue Raspberry Bottles (Rubus leucodermis, also called whitebark raspberry, black raspberry or blue raspberry), is a species of Rubus native to North America, from Alaska south as far as California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Chihuahua.
Origin Of Sour Blue Raspberry Bottles
The story of blue raspberry begins in the 1950s when there were questions about the safety of FD&C Red No. 2, also known as amaranth. (“FD&C” stands for the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938; the amaranth we’re talking about here was a dye that took its name from the grain but not the grain itself.) In 1957, according to Ai Hisano, who was a Harvard business historian specialized in the history of food colorings, research came out that concluded that Red. No. 2 was safe to consume—but it was a report funded by the chemical industry that made food dyes.
The flavor ostensibly originates from Rubus leucodermis, more commonly known as the “whitebark raspberry” or “black raspberry” for the blue-black color of its raspberry.
