Description: Allura red is an artificial orange-red colour used in sweets, drinks and condiments, medications and cosmetics, synthetic; introduced in the early eighties to replace amaranth which was considered not safe due to conflicting test results.

Allura red has also been connected with cancer.

Any allergic reaction to this dye is small compared to reactions to other azo dyes, although asthmatics and aspirin intolerant people are still at risk.
