Abstract

Today, food colorants additives are randomly used in food products, drugs and cosmetics. It causes health problems to human therefore this study was carried to evaluate the possible effects of Chocolate Brown HT E155 on body weight and some sex hormones in male albino rats. The present study including eighteen of healthy male rats, divided into three groups as follows: The first group (control group C) animals were treated with normal drinking water, the second group (T1) animals were treated with chocolate brown dye at the concentration of 200 mg/ kg of body weight and the third group (T2) animals were treated with chocolate brown dye at the concentration of 400 mg/ kg of body weight. Chocolate brown dye was given for eight weeks to all the experimental animals at experiment end blood serum was collected to determine concentration of some sex hormones included GnRH, testosterone, follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) in the serum of rats. Our results showed that significant decreased (P<0.05) is found in body weight and level of FSH, LH, GnRH and testosterone hormone in T1 and T2 group when compared with control group, as well as, occur significant decreased (P<0.05) in level of GnRH and testosterone hormone in T2 group compared with T1 group. From this study, we concluded using of Chocolate brown dye in various foods led to reduce body weight and some negative effects on hypothalamic-pituitary-testis axis function.
