Caramel C
Explicación:
I am pretty sure it is a colorant, but it is very difficult to track down exactly what it is. I would leave it as "Caramel C"; it you like, you could say "Caramel type C" or "Caramel C colorant", but perhaps best just to leave it as caramel C

One possibility is that it refers to the colorant E150 C, type C of E150 which is caramel:

"There are a series of E150 food additives approved by the European Union (EU). These are used as synthetic colouring agents in food and drink products.
The common names for E150 are:
150(a) - Plain Caramel
150(b) - Caustic Sulphite Caramel
150(c) - Ammonia Caramel
150(d) - Sulphite Ammonia Caramel"

However, I'm doubtful about this. On the other hand, this Mexican chemical company supplies "COLOR CARAMELO C" among many other things:

And here's a document about a colorant called CARAMEL-C COLORANT; it's a letter from Rio de Janeiro to the British-American Tobacco Company in the UK, and describes a product of this name supplied by a Brazilian chemical company. Its industrial uses listed include pharmaceutical.

So I would leave it as Caramel C, which is the safe option anyway.

I doubt "Caramelo C" is simply an abbreviation of "Caramelo colorante". Such an abbreviation in Spanish seems inherently unconvincing to me. I think there are enough indications to suggest that it is probably a particular type of caramel colorant ("type C"), and that this had better be retained even if we can't actually identify what it is.

caramel coloring


Explicación:
Not sure about this, but your idea would certainly work

"Caramel color or caramel coloring is a water soluble food coloring".

Which would make sense in a soluble oral solution
