What is AZO?
AZO dyes - organic compounds with AZO group. On a production scale they are obtained from diazo compounds and phenol. They are used in industry as pigments. They are used by textile dyeing and manufacture of varnishes and paints. Some AZO compounds (e.g. methyl orange) are used as indicators of chemical analysis.
AZO dyes are also used in the food industry, such as tartrazine (E102), quinoline yellow (E104), sunset yellow FCF (E110), azorubine (E122), Cochineal Red A (E124), Allura red AC (E129).
AZO dyes may exacerbate symptoms of intolerance of salicylates (such as aspirin). In addition, there are histamine triggers, which can aggravate the symptoms of asthma, as well as cause uterine contractions in pregnant women, causing miscarriages. Additionally, in combination with benzoates, they can trigger hyperactivity in children. Even non-sensitive patients can experience urticaria.
Many AZO dyes are suspected of carcinogenic effect.
