Is Red Dye 40 Toxic?

Red Dye 40, it’s one of those weird-sounding ingredients you’ll find on many food and product labels. Also known as Allura Red, it’s the most common artificial food coloring (AFC). You’ll find it in candy, baked goods, and cosmetics. There are plenty of claims that AFCs can be toxic, so just how harmful is Red 40?

WHAT IS IT?

What is it?
Red 40 is a certified color that comes from petroleum distillates or coal tars. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mandates that it has to be listed by name on food and product labels. Additives that don’t need to be specified on labels are called “exempt.” These colorings are made from plant, animal, or mineral sources.
