  • The aim is to study the effect of Tartrazine (E102) - synthetic food colour - on the antioxidant status of testis of Wistar rats. Twelve male Wistar rats were grouped into 2 groups of six each - Control and Tartrazine-treated groups. Control group was orally administered with water alone while the experimental group was orally administered with tartrazine dissolved in water. The treatment was carried out for 60 days and the activities of antioxidant enzymes - superoxide dismutase (SOD… CONTINUE READING
