Carmoisine, also known as Azorubine or E122, is a red azo dye that consists essentially in the form of disodium 4-hydroxy-3-(4-sulfonato-1-naphthylazo)-1-naphthalenesulfonate (2). In the United States, this coloring agent was listed in 1939 as D&C Red No. 10 for use in externally applied drugs and cosmetics. It was delisted in 1963 and was never used in foods in the US. In the EU, carmoisine is known as E number E122 and is authorized for use in certain foods and beverages, such as cheeses, dried fruit, and some alcoholic beverages. It is also permitted for its use in cats and dogs as colorant additives. Carmoisine is also permitted for use as an excipient in medications. In Canada, carmoisine is approved as a color additive.
