Allura Red AC is an azo dye that yields a red colour and usually comes in a powder as a sodium salt. It was introduced as a replacement for Amaranth as a food colouring.

E129 is 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 asmatics and aspirin intolerant people are still at risk. Prohibited throughout the EEC.
