Abstract
This study aims to make the food coloring healthier and safer so that it can be used as a substitute for artificial food coloring. Only spinach and kitchen tools or utensils are needed in this experiment. First thing we need to do is to boil the fresh spinach into the pot with water. Let it boil in several minutes until it reaches green/ light green/ dark green. Strain it and store in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Then it is ready to use. It is the extract of the spinach that lets the water turn into green. The result of the experiment is that the natural food coloring is efficient as artificial food coloring. It may impart a slightly flavor but still it is healthier, safer, and simply the best substitute of food coloring. The result of the experiment is making the spinach food coloring effective as an artificial food coloring.

I Introduction
Background of the study
Spinach (Spinacia oleracea) is an edible flowering plant in the family of Amaranthaceae. It is native to central and southwestern Asia. It is anannual plant(rarely biennial), which grows to a height of up to 30cm. Spinach may survive over winter in temperate regions the leveas are alternative, simple, ovate to triangular-basedm very variable in size from abaout 2-30cm long and 1-15 cm broad, with larger leaves at the base of the plant and small leaves higher on the flowering stem. The flowers are inconspicuos,...
