lake allura red

Prepared from Aluminium Hydroxide & Food colour allura red which is a Orange red synthetic azo dye, introduced to replace Amaranth in the United States of America where it is prohibited.

The colour may have slightly less allergy/intolerance reaction by aspirin intolerant people and asthmatics than most of the azo dyes, although those with skin sensitivities should be careful about lake allura red.
