The use of tartrazine E 102 as a food dye is subject to restrictions. The limit dose allowed in dairy product is 300 mg kg-1. In order to discover and control this synthetic dye in commercialized yoghurt in Côte d'Ivoire, a method has been proposed to determine its content by ion pair reversed phase liquid chromatography (LC) after liquid-solid extraction followed by detection at 430 nm. The results of the validation tests (linearity, precision, accuracy and sensitivity) were satisfactory. The method was thus applied to 210 samples of yoghurt produced by the traditional sector and commercialized in Abidjan. The content of tartrazine was higher than the maximum allowed of 300 mg kg-1 in 10 (4.8%) samples. The repeated consumption of these yoghurts can eventually cause allergic reactions and hyperactivity disorders in susceptible consumers especially in children.
