Drosophila melanogaster are model organisms commonly used to understand biological phenomena due to their small size, short lifespan and short generation time. Drosophila flies are used as model organisms for examining fundamentally important problems in biology, especially developmental biology. Food additives are substances that are added to food to modify its visual appearance, taste, texture, processing or shelf life. The increased exposure of these food dyes may lead to high neurological effects like Developmental delay, reduced locomotor activity, morphological anamolis, paralysis and it may even alter the content of neurotransmitters. This study reveals that on exposure to food dyes, larvae and pre-adult stages are prone to developmental toxicity.
