In Reply to: yellow dye allergy posted by Norm on November 19, 1999 at 21:46:20:

: I need some information about allergic reaction to yellow dye #5. Is there such a thing? Has anyone experienced it? What's the reaction?


I have astham, several allergies, and remember as a child being given orange squash and getting wheezy. I am allergic to most nuts, including almonds. I have allergic reactions to Annatto - a yellow food colouring found in many things, especially cheese. Maybe it's because I'm in the UK, but I've never heard of "Yellow colouring number 5/6" etc. But Annatto is definitely one to avoid if you have nut allergy, because I think it is derived from Almonds. I've also heard that it can be used in lipstick. Anyway - maybe Annatto is one of your "Yellow colourings".
